About Katie Webster

Hi, I’m Katie Webster. I’m a classically trained chef and have been a professional recipe developer for 20 years. Healthy Seasonal Recipes is my food blog where I share really delicious real food recipes, seasonal side dishes and weeknight meals for busy families.

Speaking of families, my two daughters, husband and two yellow labs keep me pretty busy too, so I know just how it feels to need to get dinner on the table super fast. But that doesn’t mean sacrificing taste or wellness. Grab a bite to eat, let’s hang out! 

Here are a few fun facts about Katie

  • I started developing recipes professionally in 2002 when I got a job working in the test kitchen at EatingWell Magazine. Since then I have developed thousands of recipes that appear here, in print and even in cookbooks! You can see a complete list of my published works here.
  • I started this blog in 2009. With two toddlers, I was looking for a way to continue doing the work I loved, developing and sharing recipes while working from home. 
  • In 2015 I became a published book author when my cookbook, Maple: 100 Sweet and Savory Recipes {Quirk Books} was released. 
  • I eat pretty much anything except processed cheese products like American cheese, liquid nacho cheese or spray cheese from a can. Other than that, I’m up for anything!
  • I got my first restaurant job when I was in high school, and have worked in a dozen since. 
  • After I left the restaurant industry I started a personal chef business and specialized in cooking for folks with special dietary needs.
  • I went to Skidmore College and was an art major. When I graduated I only worked in interior design for about a year before turning back to restaurant work.
  • I went to The New England Culinary School from 1999 to 2001.
  • I am one of those annoying people who enjoys working out. I am a certified group fitness instructor who teaches Les Mills Bodypump.
  • I am a former habitual dieter and gave up dieting in my mid-twenties when I discovered the Intuitive Eating method. 
  • Living in a 1790s farmhouse on the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont is never dull. Follow along on Instagram where we share our trials and triumphs of fixing up our house.
