"Good food and great company are two of life's simplest yet greatest pleasures."

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Melanie, author of melaniewinters.com and co-owner/graphic designer at Pixel Loon. While Pixel Loon focuses on graphic design and mobile development for the business world (think logos, branding, advertisements, social media images, reports, etc), melaniewinters.com is for busy families and young women who are rocking it solo or about to start a new chapter (think weddings and babies). 

With recipes, meal plans and a separate blog covering a wide range of my interests, I'm certain you'll find something that's relevant to you! In general, recipes are going to be fairly easy and perfect for weeknight meals. Meal plans are going to focus on planning ahead to use similar ingredients throughout the week and repurpose leftovers to cut down on food waste and your grocery bill. 

Having rheumatoid arthritis, I've found that a gluten free diet has significantly helped manage joint pain without needing medication so you'll find that many of the recipes I post are gluten free or at least have gluten free options available. With pregnancy; however, came the miraculous disappearance of my RA symptoms so gluten has slowly but surely made a comeback, at least for the time being. I still try to include GF options when possible, but you may stumble upon a few recipes that don't have that accommodation. 

Finally, you'll notice a products page.  This is a place where you can find all sorts of digital downloads for holidays and major events. While I love helping businesses develop their brand identities, I'll always have a soft spot for event invitations and extras for weddings, showers and holidays. Melaniewinters.com gives me the opportunity to continue on with this more feminine side of design.
