About Shanisty

Shanisty Ireland

Hello! I’m Shanisty, I’m a wife and mother of four small hooligans, with one more on the way due August, 2022. Before I started collecting children (totally kidding), I spent a decade of my life behind the news desk and chasing stories in the field as a TV News Anchor. I still freelance on local and national TV outlets weekly, but now I’m sharing my favorite recipes from the comfort of my own chaotic kitchen.

Our family moved many times during my TV News career. From West Virginia to Birmingham to Lexington to Savannah…we finally landed in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio. We will stay in Columbus, until the children fly from the nest.

Maybe you found me through my RSV Awareness Advocacy, or maybe you found me through my viral article Will you Be My Mom Friend… no matter how you landed here, I’d love to hear from you!

Feel free to connect via Instagram or email me below!





  1. We’ve led parallel lives. I worked in TV for 10 years, mostly reporting. I had my children 16 months apart and moved five times in five years. We left the traditional south for Florida. Thought I’d say hello again. Came back after reading your #soblessed post. 😀

    1. I’m so happy you’re here! Please continue to share your stories. It’s the only way to survive this parenting thing 🙂 xx

  2. Well, doesn’t that picture look just blissful? 😛

    Looking forward to reading your stories!

    1. haha!! Thank you.
