Lindsay Moe is a freelance food photographer, video editor, and blogger at The Live-In Kitchen.
Lindsay Moe started blogging in 2011 as a stay-at-home mom looking for something to do. She has since turned it into a business that is able to help support her family.
Lindsay taught herself how to cook by experimenting with recipes she found in cookbooks and food blogs. After becoming a flexible vegetarian in 2012, she became passionate about creating meatless meals that were fun and delicious using every day ingredients.
When Lindsay isn’t in the kitchen you can find her homeschooling her four children or hiking the bluffs of the Driftless Region.
