Elise Bauer publishes the popular and award-winning food blog Simply Recipes. Six years ago, after a twenty year career in technology marketing consulting, Elise created Simply Recipes to keep a record of what she was learning from cooking with her parents. What started as a hobby during the last economic recession has grown to reach over 3 million site visitors a month, and now Elise manages it as her full-time profession. These days Elise spends most of each day cooking, taking photographs of food, and answering reader questions. She knows it's not her life's purpose to be an online Betty Crocker, but that doesn't matter, she's having fun with it.
Elise also founded and runs Food Blog Search, a custom search engine that you can use to search thousands of food blogs for recipes.
