Melissa Stadler was born to cook! She was raised in Arizona in a family of 5 boys so she found refuge in the kitchen. She began following cookbooks and soon discovered she enjoyed creating her own recipes. Her dream was always to compete for $1 million dollars in the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Her dreams came true when she competed in 2010. She was able to qualify again in 2013 and it was definitely a life-changing experience. She has been on Cooking Channel’s Perfect 3 Show for winning for the most perfect cookie recipe, was showcased on the cover of Food Network Magazine after winning their Bake Sale contest and has traveled all over the country competing in other cooking contests. She started Modern Honey in December 2015 as an outlet for her creativity. She lives in Gilbert, Arizona with her family. She is a Mom of 4 kids and has been married to her husband Dean for 21 years. Her family is by far her most opinionated taste testers!
