Kristen from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker - Food BloggerKristen Baker is the author of the blog, Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.

Kristen's grandmother ran a restaurant out of her home in the 1950s. She continued to bake wedding cakes through the 1960s. She ended up as head baker for a school district in the 1970s.

Kristen's mother has been teaching others to cook, catering weddings and holding amazing dinner parties for decades.

Kristen, well, she is a SAHM mom of 5 that has baked professionally, catered and taught cooking classes. With generations of great cooks behind her, she continues to push her own culinary limits while trying to keep up with the chaos that four teenage boys and one little girl create. In the process, she is finding ways to save money, make things at home that she would have bought at the grocery store a few years ago, and still create delicious, homey foods. 

Kristen started her blog as a way to record family recipes and stories.  It has evolved into a place to share her culinary experiments. 

During 2010, she ran a feature called “Make Your Own Monday” where she tried to recreate copycat recipes of store bought foods.   Kristen recently had to start eating a gluten free diet, so there will be more “healthy” foods featured periodically, too.   

Kristen's recipes regularly appear on Cook Eat,, Foodbuzz, and She have been featured on the Huffington Post, as well as many other private blogs.
