About the author:

When Norene’s sons grew up, she realized how much she missed being a room mom. Making sweet treats with the kids and throwing classroom parties were all a thing of the past. As a result, she created Party Pinching, a popular website where she could blog about her cute food and budget friendly party ideas. Her adorable desserts have been praised by Family Fun magazine, Seventeen magazine, Taste of Home, and even Martha Stewart herself! She is a frequent guest on New Day Northwest, a morning television show in Seattle where her easy dessert demonstrations get rave reviews. Norene lives in the Seattle area with her husband, two sons, and a beagle.
