Hello to all of My Life Well Loved‘s wonderful readers!  I am so exited to be guest posting over here today!  My name is Brandi and I have a little recipe blog called Aunt Bee’s Recipes.   My blog was born out of my desire to feed my family home cooked meals, even on the busiest of days.

I have known Heather for several years now and she inspires me every single day!  She is an amazing wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend and blogger that loves God with all of her heart.  Her passion and energy are absolutely infectious, and I am so glad to call her my friend!

Some of her recipes have become family favorites around here. Her Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake is fantastic & no surprise, it has been pinned well over a million times!  I am trying out her Creamy Black Bean Soup recipe next, because it has gotten rave reviews!
