Featured Member Interview: Liz M.

This is Liz. In a nutshell, she’s a nut. Er…,wait. She’s A Nut in A Nutshell! That’s it! Liz is a Diet Coke drinking, pizza eating, reality tv watching kind of gal. She has two grown children, she lives in North Carolina whilst pining for the Midwest, and she loves to try out new recipes. We’ve loved getting to see her and know her better at blogging conferences this year. She was at BlissDom, Type-A Parent, and is attending BlogHer this week! Recently she participated in the “Dibs on My Ribs” recipe posting project. Check out her recipe for Pineapple Glazed Spare Ribs – yum!
