Natalie McLaury is a twenty-something University City resident who moved to St. Louis three years ago. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, she relocated after meeting her husband at Truman State University.
Natalie had never shown much interest in cooking and didn’t anticipate doing much of it once married. Much to her surprise, she discovered that she loved to cook and began to use food blogs as her inspiration. After a knee injury prevented Natalie from running in the summer of 2009, her husband Ryan suggested she start her own food blog to keep herself busy.
A year and half and more than five hundred recipes later, Natalie continues to blog at The Sweets Life. Posting a new recipe every day keeps her excited and challenged in the kitchen and she and Ryan rarely eat the same thing twice! Her favorite things to make are healthy dinners and decadent desserts—she’s a big believer in moderation and balance!
