Sue Ringsdorf is the recipe creator and food photographer behind SueBee Homemaker, a food blog that specializes in family friendly recipes, including both healthy dishes and hearty ones, with some indulgence sprinkled in.
In her former working life, Sue Ringsdorf worked as a budget analyst for Southwest Airlines. She left the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom to her two sons.
After her sons were grown and Sue saw the empty nest approaching, she contemplated what the “next phase” in her life would be. She had always loved being in the kitchen trying new recipes and cooking the tried-and-true favorites passed down from her family, so on her 50th birthday, she decided to start her food blog, SueBee Homemaker.
When she’s not in the kitchen, Sue and her husband, Mike, are exploring as many bike paths as possible. They are on a mission to bike ride in every state in the U.S. Sue documents some of their adventures on her blog, under the Life is Good page.
Sue has dedicated her blog to her mother, who was an excellent cook and baker, and who passed away from Alzheimer’s in April of 2019. She shares many of of her mom’s recipes, which can be found on her blog under Norma Jean’s Kitchen.
