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 2 dachshunds named Abby and Arlo. 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 a multimedia artist and sculptor specializing in one inch scale, creating tiny replicas of food and other items for avid collectors. In addition to her art, Erika also works in the world of photography 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!
Contributing author Jennifer Partridge is an artist, teacher, and home school mom.
Being able to provide her family with delicious and healthy gluten free meals has been her goal since she learned of her wheat intolerance seven years ago. A very picky eater, her son serves as resident taste tester and has helped perfect a host of gluten free substitutions and recipes.
Following her passion for creativity, Jennifer currently spends her time teaching painting, drawing, and writing, when she is not busy educating her son and homemaking.
Jennifer also enjoys spending time with her family. Her husband Merritt is a professional musician, and one of her favorite evening activities is singing silly songs while her husband and son play their guitars.
