Rosemary Siefert

  • 6 years in publishing, 5 of which were spent writing and editing food, health and lifestyle content
  • Copyedited comic strips, advice columns and crossword puzzles, which she compiled into funny pages for national newspapers
  • With more than 250,000 annual visitors, Rosie's "99 Best Christmas Cookie Recipes" collection is her most popular piece on Taste of Home; that's the least bit surprising seeing as she is constantly testing cookie recipes and listens to Christmas music way too early


Rosemary has been writing and editing for digital and print publications for six years. Starting out as a freelancer for Taste of Home, she joined the team full time in 2022. She writes and edits food content and helps manage Taste of Home’s freelance community. Rosie focuses her writing on cooking tips, baking and cleaning techniques (gotta have a sparkling kitchen!). Rosie’s degrees in journalism and English from the University of Missouri contribute to her skills as an editor, while her penchant for trying new recipes and kitchen hacks shines in her writing. If Rosie isn’t making a (fun) mess in the kitchen, she’s scoping out new restaurants, trying foods she’s never heard of, holed up at a coffee shop with a book or clanging away on one of the typewriters in her collection.


University of Missouri, bachelor's in journalism, magazine editing emphasis, and bachelor's in English, literary writing emphasis
