keri bio pic ContributorsFood Contributor: Keri Ronk – Schoolhouse Ronk

Hi! I’m Keri, I blog at Schoolhouse Ronk! Over there, I blog about our life and share yummy recipes and crafts along the way. My husband Brian and I have been married for 7 years and we have 2 sweet little girls who keep me on my toes! I love being in the kitchen and creating delicious foods that everyone will enjoy! An apron is a must for me – I am convinced that it makes me a better cook! I have a passion for healthy foods and am a habitual nutrition facts reader. Spending hours at the grocery store reading every nutrition label would my idea of a great afternoon! I will forever pick sweet snacks over salty snacks. My most favorite flavor combination is chocolate + mint, so you may be seeing some of that come out in my recipes soon. In addition to my love of cooking, I also love doing crafts and am borderline-obsessed with my Silhouette machine! I’m super excited to share recipes with you! Come over and visit me at Schoolhouse Ronk!

Hey, it’s Kim from I just started blogging again after a long hiatus, and am loving most every moment of it. I share mostly about my life with my hardworking, caring husband of 3 years – Ian – and my two sweet children – Job (2 years) and Ruthie (10 months). I love my crazy life with my two little kiddos who are only 13 months apart. Life is most certainly busy and full of lots of giggles, diapers, cooking, and laundry. And if I get a spare moment, you might find me on pinterest, knitting, or putting washi tape on something or everything. I love cooking and baking yummy food for the ones I love, and sharing a piece of that with all of you. As you will probably tell from my recipes, I have a major sweet tooth and love both Greek and Mexican food. I hope you stopped by hungry!

Hello there! I’m Nicole, I blog over at Cooking for Keeps where I share my favorite recipes that I make at home on a daily basis and blabber about food nonstop. I am beyond thrilled to start this new journey here at For Chic Sake as one of the food contributors. My motto in life as well as eating is, “everything in moderation” so you’ll see anything from healthy seafood dishes and lightened up comfort food to decadent pastas and indulgent snacks. In my non-blogging life I am a newlywed, mommy to a precious little fur ball named Ravioli, fashion enthusiast, novice decorator and working girl with a full-time office job. My love for all things food began basically at infancy and I’ve been a furious cook ever since, I’m so happy my passion has brought me here today and I hope you enjoy the dishes to come in the future.

Hi! I am Carlynn and I run a lifestyle blog called JJBegonia – a silly nickname that my equally silly Dad gave me as a little girl. My Dad is a restaurant owner and my Mom is an excellent baker, so between the two of them I’ve picked up lot of culinary tricks and a deep appreciation for food. I always approach the kitchen as a place to have fun, especially when whipping up a cocktail! When I am not working on my blog, I am a freelance photographer and writer, living in Upstate New York. I love being close to water, sipping on a chai latte, curling up with a good book, traveling anywhere and everywhere, running in the morning, and snuggling with my puppy. I am thrilled to be a contributor on For Chic Sake and can’t wait to share some new ideas with you!

Hi Y’all! My name is Nicole, and I am a Georgia peach and southern lady. When I’m not blogging, I am a full time middle school teacher. As you can imagine, writing my blog Probably Polka Dots, tweeting, and pinteresting are all welcomed breaks from those preteen hormones, but I love my job and the flexibility it allows me to write about fashion, style, and everything in between. Raised in the south and currently residing in Atlanta, I enjoy nothing more than taking a stroll through local boutiques, locating the latest finds, noshing in new restaurants, and delighting in the occasional red velvet cupcake. Blogging and contributing to For Chic Sake are wonderful creative outlets for me, and I’m elated to be here!
