Hi! My name is Katie, and I’m a 20-something journalist in Virginia. When I’m not covering local government meetings, I’m in the kitchen or walking my crazy pup, Rachel.


Whether baking tasty treats or cooking healthy vegetarian dishes, I’m always up for a new challenge. I think almost anything is better when it’s homemade, with mostly whole, unprocessed foods.

Meanwhile Rachel will eat anything–from towels to tennis balls to twigs. She keeps me fit, requiring several miles of walking each day, rain or shine. And she’s always “helping” in the kitchen, whether my housemates and I like it or not.

My mom, Amy, and I are also participating in the baking challenge Tuesdays with Dorie, where we’re working through “Baking with Julia” with hundreds of other bloggers. She’s 200 miles away from me, so we’re baking “together” via this blog. We text each other pictures, and maybe we’ll even Skype while baking one day, too. Check out my Free Lance-Star story about our project, in honor of Mother’s Day!
