Writer, recipe creator and photographer, I’m the girl behind Natural Sweet Recipes. I have a love for anything sweet, homemade and decadent. I also have a passion for nutrition and great health. After years of experimenting in the kitchen (often with my mom & two sisters) I was inspired by the ability to make desserts with untraditional (healthy!) ingredients. How does “natural” & “sweet” come together? All-natural ingredients and natural sweeteners allow us to create sweet treats in a healthy and guilt-free way! Creating recipes that taste great, look great and make you feel great is an addictive thing. My passion for healthy desserts is fueled by inspiration from beautiful recipes, my travels & the contagious happiness that friends, family and readers show for a natural sweet recipe! For me, being able to indulge my baking addiction & sweet tooth while embracing a healthy lifestyle is sheer bliss.
When I’m not blogging, I love traveling with my husband, hanging out with my dog Enzo, being with my family, organizing, reading cookbooks and eating really great food. I live with my husband Travis in Washington, D.C.
Natural Sweet Recipes Blog
Natural Sweet Recipes began in 2011 with my sisters, Holly and Chelsea. We explored many ingredients and recipes, and soon, Natural Sweet Recipes was a large collaboration of recipes made with natural sweeteners and whole, pure foods. We were initially inspired to create healthy recipes after doing the candida diet and strived to make desserts that could be enjoyed on the candida diet and any diet – no matter the diet restrictions. In 2015, Annie slowly maintained Natural Sweet Recipes without her sisters and the blog continued to grow with an eclectic collection of recipes including raw, vegan, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo and soy-free recipes in addition to being naturally sweetened. Natural Sweet Recipes has been featured in places such as The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed.com, The Honest Company and others. We’re pleased to share more healthy recipes with our cookbook, The Everything Naturally Sugar-Free Cookbook.
