Back in fall of 2008 I decided enough was enough and that I needed to get my recipes organized.
Have a place to put them down and a simple way to type up and record the ones that I make off the top of my head.
Even better if I could easily share them with my friends and family. And that is how Good Life Eats was born.
My name is Katie and I’m a recipe addict.
But most importantly, I am a mother.
Sometimes cooking the recipes I really want to eat takes a back seat to what’s more important, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve given up on the kitchen.
In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Being a mom of two busy children has given me new perspective in the kitchen.
I’ve found that I can prepare a delicious meal even with two kids fighting in the background.
And now and again, even with seemingly “nothing in the house to eat.”
And sometimes, all you need is a little cheat sheet to follow (rather than a recipe) for endless meal inspiration.
I’ve learned that just because I love trying new foods, does not mean that my son will also enjoy that.
Take the pickiest eater you know and times that by at least 5. Then add a bit of anxiety to the mix, a peanut allergy, and an extremely stubborn personality.
He’s still picky, but we’re making progress and he loves to help me out in the kitchen (I like that too…most of the time).
Now, writing for GoodLife Eats has become something of a hobby with benefits.
I also enjoy writing freelance food related topics a myriad of food related brands.
You can check out a catalog of my work right here.
I haven’t completed any formal food training, but I have been in the kitchen all my life.
As a child, I expressed an interest in food and cooking – creating a cake on the kitchen floor at age three, making Mom’s chili at eight, and progressing on to preparing family meals in my teen years.
I’ve always been in the kitchen and now GoodLife Eats has become my place to share what I finds good in the kitchen and in life.
