About Me

hello! I'm Kathleen 
& I like baking, eating, and anything food. 

a smidgen about this blog

I started this food blog shortly after my husband and I got married in December 2012. I have been baking for several years now and started cooking around the time we got married.  

I started this food blog because I was always posting my baking and cooking endeavors on Facebook and Instagram.  Friends and family would often ask for the recipes I was cooking up so I thought this would be a great way to share those recipes. Now I can share these, not just friends and family, but with anyone who is looking for a good recipe to try. 

My sister is also a food blogger- The Pajama Chef. :) She is an amazing cook and baker. She has been so helpful to me since I started this blog.

a pinch more about me

1. I am married to the most incredible man. Ever. (He's the handsome man in the picture above.)
2. I studied Early Childhood Education and Exceptional Needs at Purdue University. I student taught in a kindergarten classroom and then taught private kindergarten for 8-9 months post-college.
4.  I have a huge sweet tooth. Seriously. I extremely dislike ending a meal without something sweet.
5. I love (in no order) chocolate chips, peanut butter, blackberries, cherry coke zero, hazelnut coffee, Reeses, green pepper, cookie dough, bananas, colby jack cheese, and red velvet anything. 
6. I love Jesus! He is my rock, redeemer, & Savior.

Oh! There's something you should know about my cooking and baking.  I tend to think my way is better so I sometimes skip steps or ingredients. I know, I know. I'm a rebel.  ;) Sometimes it turns out great; other times... not so great.  I'll try my best to let you know how that turns out throughout my recipes. :)

before you dash away...

In April of 2010, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Most people would (and do) step back and ask me, how do you manage diabetes and bake all the time?! 

Balance & moderation, my friends. 

I believe if you maintain a balanced diet and eat dessert in moderation, you can live a healthy life with (or without) diabetes. 

Since my diagnosis, I have become much more comfortable with talking about my condition so feel free to ask me any questions about it!

I hope you enjoy this blog. I'd love to hear what you think!


  1. Hey there! I've been following your sister's blog for years and that's how I finally found you b/c she linked to you. Just wanted to share that I'm type 1 as well and also indulge in sweet treats. I just had my first baby and was rocking a 5.5 A1C throughout my pregnancy, even with those sweet treats! Rock on sugar sister! :)

    1. Thank you so much for the comment, Veronica! I love meeting other type 1's, especially in the blog world ;) That is an incredible A1C, even if you weren't pregnant- you go girl! Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  2. Love that both you and your sister are food bloggers! That must be a lot of fun.
