The Katy in the kitchen:
I started this blog in February 2013 because I was searching for a creative outlet that involved writing, cooking, and photography, with the caveat that it was a project I would have complete control over. I love everything about running a blog, from being my own editor, to social media interaction, to recipe ideas that wake me up in the middle of the night.
I recently graduated university with a psychology degree, another one of my huge passions, and I’ve held various media, writing, and cooking jobs. While I’m powering through the first steps of adulthood, I always turn back to dough as my favourite stress reliever.
Every day in the kitchen, and every day on the web, has been a learning experience and I’ve loved every second of it.
I live in Winnipeg, a city often made fun of in sitcoms. It’s commonly called “Winter-peg” because we regularly have winters with temperatures reaching -50 degrees Celsius. We make the most of our short but beautiful summers, and the longer I live here, the closer Winnipeg becomes to my heart.
I’m a chef, photographer, writer, editor, social media promoter, and web developer all in one. I still have so many things to learn in all those jobs, and I love the entire process. I’ve had a great deal of help on the techie side of things from my brother, Kyle MacKinnon. Thanks, Kyle!
