Welcome!

My name is Katie, and I am a wife to Rob who loves bacon and skiing, and mom to four amazing kids eight and under, who also like bacon and skiing (did I mention their dad is in sales?). I just finished my first novel and am working on my second. In the mean time I make dinner. A lot. I write about it on my food blog, The Humble Onion. I also write freelance at Coastal Home Magazine.

Depending on the season, you can find me with my family, going to the beach, hiking or skiing on the weekends. During the week when I’m not feeding this crew or running, I am working on writing my second novel.

Thanks for visiting!
