After welcoming a new baby into the family, Mallory has a newfound appreciation for quick meals. With little time to think about what’s for dinner when trying to entertain a baby, her focus has shifted to making a dinner that is not only delicious, but quick and simple. Through this new understanding of motherhood and the trials of getting dinner on the table, she is passionate about helping other families by providing recipes that are speedy and easy, but still taste like they took the entire day to prepare. She also loves to help new cooks in the kitchen by providing recipe blogs with step-by-step photography. Dinner doesn’t have to be a challenge, and she wants every mother to know it. When she’s not developing recipes in the Test Kitchens or behind the camera, Mallory loves spending time with her family and witnessing all of her son’s “firsts.” Now that he is starting solid foods, she’s looking forward to introducing him to new foods and flavors. She also loves traveling and finding a donut shop in every city she visits.

Mallory is a Product Specialist in the Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen.
