Introducing The Contributing Writers!

Since I will be out enjoying this beautiful Memorial Day weekend, I can think of no better time to introduce you to Cocktails with Mom’s NEW  & incredible team of contributing writers!   These talented ladies will be adding a fresh perspective to Cocktails with Mom by offering tutorials, recipes, and other fascinating ideas.

Please give them a warm welcome and watch for their posts throughout the week and in the months ahead… I’m so very happy to have them on my team. Here are their short bios but to learn more about them, go visit their blogs.  I hope you enjoy their experience and fresh “voices” as much as I do!

Meet Lucy:

Lucy is a 24 year old self taught food blogger from Devon, England. She loves to cook healthy meals from scratch with locally grown ingredients. She adores spicy food, Asian cuisine and anything with chocolate and peanut butter! You can read her blog Lucy Loves to Cook here.

Meet Staci

Staci resides in Upstate New York with her husband Jay and their menagerie of animals.  She enjoys growing most of their produce and cooking from scratch. You can find her blogging over at where she shares her love for food Simple Farmstead Cooking or over at backyard farm blog at Life At Cobble Hill Farm.

Meet Elaine

Hey y’all! My name is Elaine and I am the blogger behind Cooking to Perfection. I enjoy all things related to food, recipes, and being in the kitchen, especially when anything sweet is involved. I’m a huge believer in the “everything in moderation” concept, so I tend to make a variety of recipes, most of which are delicious and healthy, with a few indulgences thrown in. Despite the calorie count, I always aim to make recipes that are easy and quick because Lord knows we all have busy schedules and don’t need to be spending lots of time in the kitchen. Thanks for taking some time out of your day to stop by. It’s so nice to meet you!

 Meet Shannon

Hi! I’m Shannon from Sewing Barefoot. I’m a full time interior designer who loves anything crafty and creative. I can usually be found with a can of spray paint in hand or searching for my next project at a local antique store. My husband and I love bringing new life to items that seem to have been forgotten and enjoy filling our home with one-of-a-kind “treasures.” My little blog is filled with fun crafts, DIY home projects and the occasional recipe – I’d love for you to stop by and craft along with me! 

Thanks, Ladies! 

I’m looking forward to working with each of you!
