About me

My name is Katie, and I just graduated from college where I studied Advertising / PR and Spanish.  I am currently working in the Marketing department at a publishing company that publishes local magazines in the Twin Cities.

I love to feed people.  There's truly nothing better than enjoying great conversation over great food.  I am also incredibly passionate about entertaining.  I always tell people that I live to entertain.    You will also find bits about entertaining on my blog!

While the Pioneer Woman was my inspiration for this blog, I prefer to channel Meryl Streep's character in It's Complicated.

I come from a very large, close-knit, mixed family, and I couldn't be luckier.  Somehow all of our gatherings take place in our kitchen where someone is always baking or cooking - usually my mom Sara.  All of our fun happens in the kitchen, usually over beer and wine (or gin and tonics).

Here's a little more info about me: 
  • I have a serious zest for life.  
  • I am in love with the Twin Cities.  I am a Twin Cities' restaurant / shops / events / etc. junkie. 
  • I have an adorable red vintage bike with a basket.  It is nothing less than fantastic.  I bike everyday, even if it's not on my cruiser.
  • My day is always better with a latte.  I am a coffee snob (as well as a beer snob).
  • I love aerobics and spin classes.  My ultimate goal is to become a group fitness instructor.  It's been a long time coming, but I'm workin' on it!
  • My family is loud, particularly my sisters and me. My stepdad Mark - all in good fun - never fails to mention this.
  • I have a wee brother of 3 years, Carter. He belongs to my dad, Joe and stepmom, Debbie.

I think that covers the basics!

In my quest to become a famous baker / entertainer (just kidding, not famous [well maybe locally famous]), I shall start this blog of sorts. I hope you find it inspiring (and mouth-watering of course). Enjoy!
