About Me


I’m Stephanie: The recipe developer, baker, photographer, and author here at Back For Seconds. Here are some random things about me:

1. I believe in miracles.

2. I am addicted to all things sparkly.

3. I can’t make a decision to save my life.

4. My hair color is constantly changing (see #3).

5. I am shy, compassionate, and a bit of a neat freak.

6. I love fashion.

7. Chocolate, gooey, and fudgy desserts get the thumbs up from me.

8. I never use recipes or measure ingredients. This blog forces me to keep track of such things ;)

9. I feel naked without jewelry.

10. I like shopping a little too much.

11. I love cooking/baking with my little girl.

12. I love being a mom and I try to soak up every second I have with my babies.

13. I love taking pictures and the photographs of my family are among my most treasured possessions.

14. I get totally giddy (and still get butterflies) on dates with my husband.

15. I like to overdose on accessories.

16. I am a hairstylist.

17. I design, create, and sell jewelry (found here).

18. I don’t believe there is a greater sound than baby giggles. When all 4 of my littles are giggling together it totally melts me.

19. I have naturally curly hair.

20. Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite flavor combo.

Let’s get personal:

* I am married to the coolest guy ever. We got engaged at 20, and after 10 years of marriage we are still crazy about each other.

* I am a Christian. I don’t do everything right. I make mistakes. I don’t deserve God’s grace but thankfully, He gives it freely anyway.

* I am mama to 10 babies. Six are in the arms of Jesus and I miss them everyday. Our daughter, twin boys, and baby boy give us immeasurable joy and they are proof that miracles happen.

* As much as I would like to, I can’t please everyone, but if I am honoring the Lord, that’s all that really matters.

And lastly, a confession:

More often than not, I eat cookies for breakfast!
