Hi, I’m Katie, a food writer and registered dietitian with a master’s degree in clinical nutrition. When my kids came along, they didn’t care a whit about those credentials, only that their noses got wiped and their bananas mashed just right. I put my work life on hold for a fair stretch, worrying all the while that I’d lose touch with my craft. Turns out the opposite happened. Being a mom fueled a passion for helping families raise healthy kids through sound feeding habits, delicious recipes, and lots of patience.
Still, right now, I’m probably doing what you’re probably doing: trying to figure out what to fix for dinner, or pack in a lunch box, or put in my shopping cart. In addition to my work on Mom’s Kitchen Handbook, I develop recipes, teach cooking and nutrition classes, consult, and write for magazines and newspapers. I’ve published two cookbooks: Rise and Shine: Better Breakfasts for Busy Mornings (Roost Books, 2016) and Best Lunch Box Ever (Chronicle Books), which was an IACP awards finalist in 2014. My third book, PREP: The Essential College Cookbook, will be out in 2019.
Yes, I have a master’s degree in nutrition, but that doesn’t mean I don’t make room for chewy chocolate chip cookies or look the other way when my husband buys Doritos during college football season.
You’ll find my work in lots of places, including the magazines, newspapers, and broadcast programs below.
