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.

Thanks for visiting!
