Hi! My name is Emily, and welcome! I am the food photographer, recipe developer, and content creator behind my blog, Resplendent Kitchen. I started this blog in early 2019 as a place to share my creative passions for cooking and baking plant-based food and photography. If you’re looking to get inspired, you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve been plant-based and vegan since February 2016. When I’m not busy blogging or photographing, I love to travel, learn languages, do yoga, and spend time with my husband and our adorable adopted cats Milo and Oreo here in Tucson, Arizona. I consider myself a lifelong learner and am usually taking one course or another. Most people are surprised to learn that I’d rather be at home than anywhere else, except for when I’m traveling!

How did you start your website?
As a member of Food Blogger Pro, I created my self-hosted WordPress site (WordPress.org) step by step with their helpful videos. They have a wonderful and supportive community with valuable information on how to start a website.
When it was time to choose a hosting company, I decided on Siteground. From my experience, they are secure and have outstanding support. I selected my WordPress theme through Feast Design Co. Their minimal blog designs are perfect for food bloggers. I use a recipe plugin called WP Recipe Maker, Premium version, and I find their support to be responsive and excellent. To make my website run faster, I have WP Rocket for caching. For social sharing including Pinterest, I utilize a WordPress plugin called Social Pug. I love it for its customizable options for social sharing buttons as well as Pinterest.
Thank you for stopping by
