Bev Weidner is a unique blend of food and lifestyle blogger, photographer, mom of impossibly photogenic twins, wife, Instagram maven, brand ambassador and public speaker.
Bev Weidner is the high-energy mom of boy/girl twins, Will and Natalie; the wife of a dude, Aaron, who has immorally good hair; and the indie rock musician star of her own previous, pre-high waisted jeans life.
She even played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz in New Mexico in 1995. (Her mom wanted her to tell you that.)
After quitting her job in 2010, Bev started her blog, Bev Cooks, to keep herself occupied while she figured out what she really wanted to do with her life. But in no time, she fell in love with the art and process of blogging; cooking, photographing and sharing the experience. More importantly, she fell in love with the blogging community, out of which she has made some of her closest friends.
With the success of her blog, came the privilege to travel coast to coast to write and photograph for various publications, like Food Network, Tablespoon, What To Expect, Chinet, and Hey Mama, and even to speak at blogging conferences and events.
Bev’s knack for not taking life (or herself) too seriously has led to some seriously cool opportunities. (And a surprise viral moment.) She’s traveled all over the world, starred in two national television campaigns, and recently launched a new digital series with the Food Network.
Since 2010, Bev has been sharing recipes, stories, style, music and horrible advice TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. What started as a venue for creative comfort food has become a community of people who understand that anything is better with a good rosé and a good laugh. And more rosé.
