About Me

Hi there! I’m Kate Wood, a self-taught baker, and official taste-tester of all things delicious. I live in LA (that’s Lower Alabama, ya’ll) where my husband and I are raising our two year old daughter and a baby boy that’s fresh from the oven.

By day, I work as a clinical dietitian, and by night, I liberally practice my “everything in moderation” motto by baking and experimenting with new recipes and flavors. Most of my inspiration comes from cookbooks, travels, and the desire to create things with my own two hands. I believe in thank you notes, laughing at yourself, and the magic that happens when friends share good food and recipes.

I like to make food pretty and approachable, so I hope you find a lot of that here. Other things you’ll also probably read about on this blog include my education and introduction to Southern culture, my love for crafting, parties, and traveling, and the joys and mishaps that so characterize my life as a new wife and mama.
