Healthy Seasonal Recipes

About Katie

Katie Webster in the kitchenHi I’m Katie Webster, a classically trained chef and recipe developer and this 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! 

My Mission Here At Healthy Seasonal Recipes

My mission is to make cooking with locally sourced seasonal ingredients easy and fun for busy families. 

By writing fast and easy recipes and creating educational resources like my produce spotlights and cooking tips, I hope to inspire home cooks to try new healthy recipes, learn new skills and enjoy cooking! See all my recipes here.

Here are a few fun facts about me

  • I started developing recipes professionally in 2002 when I got a job working in the test kitchen at EatingWell Magazine. 
  • I started this blog in 2009 when my second daughter turned one year old. 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 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 love chocolate, bacon and wine, but I also eat salad like it’s my job.
  • 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 the art field for one year before turning back to restaurant work.
  • I went to The New England Culinary School from 1999 to 2001.
  • I am a former habitual dieter and gave up dieting in my mid-twenties when I discovered the Intuitive Eating method
  • I live in the foothills of the Green Mountains of Vermont on a dead-end dirt road. My husband, I make maple syrup on our ten-acre maple forest every spring. You can check out our maple syrup website here.
