Meredith Steele is a recipe developer, food writer, food photographer, and the author of InSockMonkeySlippers.com, a recognized family food blog celebrating fresh and natural foods. A former graphic designer specializing in print media, Meredith left the advertising world after her daughter was born prematurely to care for her. Wanting to give her family the best, she turned to her love of cooking and created a blog to share lighthearted stories about life and recipes derived from her passion for food. Using this passion and her marketing and design skills from the advertising world, she launched MBS Recipe Development and became a full-time freelance recipe developer with the combined skills of styling and photography. When not writing for her own blog, she can be found writing for Jamie Oliver as an author on JamieOliver.com.
