Pizzazzerie’s New Contributing Writers!

So, “I am excited to introduce” doesn’t really cut it — I literally could jump up and down and tell everyone I know about the new contributing writers (fairly certain my coworker, Jill, who I nearly tackled this morning just to tell her, will attest to).  Crista and Katie will make a fabulous addition the team. WELCOME!

Crista Scibelli

Crista is an avid writer and lover of all things wedding, party and entertainment related and is extremely excited to be a part of the team! She has a passion for creative DIY projects, new trends and ideas, and is often called upon to help put together events and activities for friends and family. Currently working as the Advertising and Branding Manager of WE tv and Wedding Central in New York City, she is also well versed in social media strategies and her background includes positions at various entertainment companies within the industry. Crista received her degree in TV and Film Production from the SI Newhouse School at Syracuse University.
Favorite Dessert: Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

Katie Saeger

Katie started her own event planning company, Simply & Forever, 3 years ago and has been in the event industry for 5 years.  She is a Media Planner/Buyer at Osborn & Barr Communications in St. Louis where she lives as a newlywed with her husband of 7 months.  Katie shares our passion for creativity (and paper!), adores photography, and appreciates great design.  She spent two years living in Austin, TX and loves live music (we do too!) Katie graduated from the University of Miami in Florida with a major in Advertising/Psychology and a minor in Marketing.
Favorite Dessert: Anything Chocolate (and we hear she’s famous for her mint chocolate brownies!)

Celebrating with Cookies

How are we going to celebrate the addition of these 2 fabulous ladies? By making Chocolate Caramel Cookies with Sea Salt of course!  Just thought I’d leave you with this yummy cookie recipe – head over to my friend Maria’s site, Two Peas & Their Pod for this recipe (and dozens of others).
