Heather Durdil is a thirty something wife, mother, photographer, and chronic oversharer on the internet. She blogs at Domestic Extraordinaire, where she does it all; she never said she does it all well.
She is a self taught photographer that has been neglecting her camera the past year in favor of her iPhone 4 and Instagram. Her love for Instagram started while she was waiting for her teenage daughter to get off of work each night and realized that people didn't mind her sharing her photos while she complained that her daughter never got out of work on time.
Now when people look at her in public they aren't only asking "How are you old enough to have a seventeen year old?" they are also asking "Does she ever put down her phone?"
Launched in 2007, Catherine, mom to Kenya (6) and Chloe (4), created Weelicious.com as a platform to show parents around the world how easy and beneficial it is to expose children to wholesome and delicious homemade food. After personally struggling with how to feed Kenya, Catherine recognized a need for realistic, accessible and nutritious recipes for parents using minimal ingredients that are fully loaded with flavor. Weelicious, which now houses over 1200 original recipes, isn’t about taking risks or presenting challenges in the kitchen. Catherine inspires her community with ingredients that are readily available and recipes that are fast and easy to follow. Debuting a new recipe or tip daily and how-to cooking videos posted every Tuesday, Weelicious is a wealth of information and has quickly developed an international audience on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.
Catherine takes her inner ‘mom-ologue’ from the web to the page with her book, Weelicious: One Family. One Meal. Starting out as an inspirational feeding guide, Catherine cleverly weaves together first-hand experiences with factual evidence, and then naturally progresses into 140 of her own can-do “easy, fresh, and fun” recipes. Summer 2013 Weelicious Lunches will be published with over 160 simple recipes to get kids excited about school lunch.
