About Your Hostess

Hello friends, family, curious readers, etc. My name is Kristen and I’m the 35 year old mom of 4 children. I have 1 son who is 7 and 3 daughters ages 5, 3 and a baby born May 11, 2009. I am a happily married and work from home as a freelance writer for various online and print publications. Besides my family, I am passionate about cooking, entertaining, photography, reading, and shopping.

I decided to join the blogging world as a way to help document what happens in my life, as my life seems to be zooming by at light speed.

You’ll find two sections on this site… one section, Dine and Dish, will chronicle our adventures in entertaining. The other section, Dishing it up Family Style, you’ll find out all about what’s going on in our life, and how our family is entertaining us.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look! It’s great to have you here.
