Profile: Andie Mitchell
I am the former social media manager and editor at Foodista. Cooking and baking hold a very special place in my life- both creative ways of sharing and celebrating my life through food. Growing up I loved to follow my mother around the kitchen, asking questions, spilling things, eating, eating, and eating. And today, I'm still calling her for recipes, creating my own, exploring food in any way I can, and writing about it. I also write my own food blog at CanYouStayForDinner.com.
