Meet Our Contributors!


I share what brings me joy, spins my world. Through Her Looking Glass is a uniquely New England lifestyle blog featuring my (sometimes poignant, often humorous) musings, audio recordings, DIY projects, recipes, and love of all things New England. My family (and especially sweet little Hudson w/Down syndrome) often inspires my writing.



  Hi there, I’m Amanda… a wife and stay at home mom to my 2 kids.  I’ve had a passion for cooking and baking for years now, and love trying out new recipes. Once I started cooking, I quickly discovered an intense passion and started cooking my way through all my cookbooks.  This moved on to baking as well, and I’ve never looked back!


Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess named Amber. (That’s me.) She loved all things crafty and delicious. And she was a huge fan of DIY. (Why pay when you can do it yourself?) One day the princess met a handsome prince. This blog is about their happily ever after.


Hi, I’m Amy, a modern mommy from North Carolina. But you can call me Atta Girl.  Creativity keeps me up at night – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I share ideas and projects to make your home brighter and your heart lighter.


I am Annie. I’ll be sharing all the things that bring me bliss, from crafting to cooking, to my handsome husband Drew and my crazy Cowboy Corgi Rogue. My day job is in marketing, and all things social media, technology, and understanding how to better communicate and influence purchase decisions are my passions. I love taking on new adventures and would be happy to share my expertise with anyone who needs some marketing direction.


 I started this blog with my kids in mind.  I wanted them to know all the things I’ve learned as a mother.  I wanted there to be an easy place they could go to get my recipes and tips on the little things in life (since I’m sure I wont remember any of this when I’m old enough for them to have kids!).  I’m not a big journal writer, I am not a great organizer, so I thought a blog was the best thing for me to do. Everything all in one place and I can take pictures of it all!


I am a stay at home mother to six wonderful children. Baking, cooking, and blogging are wonderful outlets for me when the stresses of life try to take me out. I hope you try a few recipes and enjoy a few laughs!

Chelsea and Molly

We’ve always dreamed of opening our own bakery and recently agreed that a blog is a perfect way to combine our passion for sharing with others. With the changes and challenges that come with growing up, we’ve always had one constant that connects us: food. We’ve experimented with recipes, shared recipes and dined out on more occasions than we can count.



Hi there! I’m Dini and I am the recipe developer, photographer, writer and mad scientist behind The Flavor Bender.

We all love to eat great food, after all. Cooking those meals can and should be just as much fun!

Welcome to The Bitter Side of Sweet. My name is Nancy. I’m a mother and wife first. Being a mother is my main job and I love it. I am so blessed to be able to stay at home and be with my kiddos and watch them grow.I am afraid to admit this but I am a blogger next. It’s hard to say this because it doesn’t seem real some days. It’s an amazing experience and I love sharing my passion for food with you.


 My name is Nicole. I’m the wife of Jared and the blessed mom of three happy boys, Bryce, Henry and Charlie. I’m a Christian, a wife, a mom, a piano teacher, an Autism mom, a homeschool co-op leader, and now…a blogger. I started a blog on a whim.  I had “discovered” Pinterest a few months before and was having such a great time trying all these pins. Somehow, the thought just popped in my head, I should start a blog to keep up with all of this. And just to make things almost impossible, I decided I would try a new pin every single day for a year. Thus, the premise of my blog was born.
