Hi, I’m Amy Palanjian! I’m a mama to two girls and I work as a writer, editor, and recipe developer for magazines, books, and websites. We live near Des Moines. You may know me from Yummy Toddler Food and this new site is meant to provide more family dinner ideas, more recipes to fuel yourself, and more ideas to help you streamline your time in the kitchen so that you can enjoy yummy meals made in the time you actually have.
For over a decade, I’ve worked in magazine and digital content development. Most recently I was the Lifestyle Director of FamilyFun magazine.. Previously, I was a food editor with Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Media and the Deputy Editor of ReadyMade magazine. I also contribute to AllRecipes magazine and my work has appeared in All You, Better Homes and Gardens, Bon Appetit, Delicious Living, DIY magazine, HGTV magazine, The Kitchn, Momtastic, Mother.ly, Organiclife.com, Parents, Parents.com, Real Simple, Super Healthy Kids, The Wall Street Journal, and The Honest Company website. I’ve developed recipes for a number of clients including Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, Skeeter Nut-Free, Barilla, Terra’s Kitchen, McCormick, PUJ, Reynolds, and Danone. I’ve even worked on videos for Better Homes and Gardens and Recipe.com! (My work is really super fun!) I love helping families find an easier way to enjoy wholesome, delicious meals together.
