Welcome Costco Connection Readers!

I would like to say a friendly hello and thanks for visiting to all the Costco Connection Magazine readers who have come to visit by way of my Quinoa Taco Salad recipe that was shared in this month’s issue. You can find the April issue here on the Costco Connection website if you do not receive it by mail or are not a Costco customer. I’m on the same page as Mario Batali! I love sharing my ideas for simple and delicious family meals, and of course treats too.

If you are visiting from Coscto Connection, I would like to take a minute to introduce myself to you:

My name is Katie Goodman and I began goodLife {eats} in fall 2008. I have always loved being in the kitchen, eating and sharing recipes with my friends and family. Some of my favorite memories throughout life have occurred in the kitchen and around the table with food and family. I currently reside in New Mexico with my husband and two children. Besides cooking and creating recipes (and of course eating, too!) I love to read and take pictures. I am a beginning, but very enthusiastic, vegetable gardener and am enjoying making my house a home.

I began goodLife {eats} as a way to express my creativity and archive some of my favorite recipes, new and old. A mix of great recipes, family memories, and yummy photography is what you’ll discover here. I never could have guessed it would be what it is today. It has provided me with opportunities to freelance for Paula Deen Online and Craftzine.com. I am extremely blessed to have a job that I truly have a passion for and can do from home.


I would love to share some of my favorite recipes from the site with you and invite you to explore my recipe index as well.

If you enjoy what you’ve seen here, I invite you to subscribe to goodLife {eats} via email or RSS reader. I love to connect with my readers and make new friends. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook, GoodReads, and Flickr.

As I said, these are just a few of my favorites, and they were hard to choose. I hope to see you around in the future and thanks so much for your visit! And a huge thanks to Costco Connection for featuring me!
