Blogger Takeover: Shay Shull aka Mix & Match Mama

Shay Shull 3

Hi everyone!  My name is Shay…but most people know me as the Mix and Match Mama.  I’m a cookbook author, foodie and lifestyle blogger, wife, mom of three, world traveler, baseball lover, coffee addict and Erin Condren obsessed gal.  I love being home with my kiddos and making every day a little bit special.

 

On my blog, most days you’ll find me talking about my adoption and infertility journey, things I wear, things I love on TV, faith, friends, and lots about my kiddos.  One constant thing I talk about daily is food.  I’m a busy mama like many of you, but I love being in the kitchen.  Years ago, I decided to take some of my tried and true recipes and just tweak them a bit to create a refreshed version of my staples. These small tweaks result in hundreds of variations on the same simple dish, that family and friends alike can enjoy! Whenever I deliver meals to friends and family, I place one of my “made for you by Mix and Match Mama” EC gift labels on their dinner and this way, they know it’s made from my kitchen with my love.

 

I pride myself on showing my readers simple recipes that can be on the table in no time.  I don’t like lengthy ingredients lists or overly complicated recipes. I like meals that the whole family will love and won’t stress out busy mamas.  My recipes include everything from breakfast to lunch, dinner and dessert and of course, lots of seasonal and holiday treats too. I use a different EC notebook for each season’s recipes so I can easily locate and reference favorites from the past. These notebooks keep my recipes so organized and makes blogging and cookbook writing simple!

 

Speaking of cookbook writing…I have two new cookbooks out right now! Cakes shows you one simple little bundt cake recipe that can be mixed and matched into 101 different versions.  They’re all seasonal, simple and so festive!  Meal Planner breaks down the calendar and helps get easy and delicious meals on your table each day of the week while also providing you with pantry and grocery shopping lists.

I love meeting new ladies, so please stop by and say hi!  You can also find me on  InstagramFace BookPinterest and Twitter too.
