Hi, I’m Katie. This is me. kate & co. is my baking & dessert website.
I’m (now) 28, I live in the Pacific Northwest & I started this blog in February 2012. I grew up in Eugene, OR — met my sweetheart there when I was 19 years old, and married him at NAVSTA Everett’s Grand Vista Ballroom in 2007. We’ve been living in Washington State since 2006, and bought our first house in 2011. I love my family, friends and especially my dogs. I work full time at a multi-specialty medical & cosmetic practice based out of Kirkland & Seattle, WA, and I love making desserts and event planning.
I do my best baking very late at night, I like to play loud music in my kitchen, and I almost never make time to read anything other than cookbooks (but working on it). I used to play in a jazz band, I love animals (especially my dogs), and I’ve never eaten red meat (which is why I didn’t pursue a career as a chef). The sweet tooth is from my dad & the talent from my mom (we never did boxed cakes — thank you mom). I consider myself an amateur baker & a dedicated perfectionist.
I bake & write here just for fun, so thanks for reading!
