About Life Made Simple

Life Made Simple is a 6 year-old blog that features unique, approachable and budget friendly recipes that will make life a little more simple. While a majority of the recipes are desserts, I also share quick and easy made from-scratch breads, breakfasts, drinks, and dinners ranging from healthy to decadent.

About Me

I’m Natalie Dicks, the founder, author and photographer of Life Made Simple. I’m 28 years old and currently reside in Salt Lake City, Utah. I started my blog as a hobby but have since worked tirelessly to turn my passion into something that means so much more to me! I love my readers and find it incredibly rewarding to connect with them. It always makes my day when I receive “thank you” emails! I love working with a variety of brands/companies to help them meet their marketing objectives and informing my readers of their products.


Recipe development, sponsored recipe posts, giveaways, social media & sharing, brand ambassadorship, food photography, product photography, videography, and Facebook Live.
