MyGourmetConnection® is an ever-growing resource for people who love to cook and enjoy great food. We believe that a good meal shared with family and friends is one of life's greatest pleasures and our aim is to help our readers enjoy great food by sharing our original recipes for everyday meals and special occasions.
All of our recipes are written by home cooks, for home cooks, with step-by-step instructions that are clear and easy to follow, and a photo of the end result.
who we are
Lynne Webb is the editor, publisher and recipe developer for MyGourmetConnection®.
A lifelong foodie and experienced cook, she decided to use her graphic design and marketing background to launch a website where she could explore and share her passion for food.
She comes from a long line of fabulous home cooks and though not professionally trained, honing her cooking skills and learning about food was her primary pastime until 2008, when it became a full-time endeavor.
Her favorite indulgence is a great bottle of wine paired with a selection of artisan cheese. A true animal lover, she currently has 4 rescue kitties and 4 dachshunds (2 rescues) named Abby, Arlo, Sadie & Sawyer. The dogs are steadfast companions in the kitchen, tirelessly volunteering their taste-testing services.
Contributing editor Erika Pitera is a journalist, musician, artist and all-around food lover.
She works as editor-in-chief of Artfully Wed, a wedding style blog and magazine for creative brides with an eye for aesthetics. In addition to her online media pursuits, Erika also works in the world of photography, art and design.
She's a classically trained violinist and pianist, as well as incredibly passionate about animal rights and welfare. She frequently volunteers her time and skills to a shelter photography organization and other animal rescues along with her photographer husband, Tom.
Erika's mini dachshunds, Lexie and Logan, are also her steadfast cooking companions and avid cucumber aficionados. Their place is underfoot in the kitchen waiting for a tasty morsel!
