My name is Katy and I am a 28 year old teacher with a passion for food. Cooking, grocery shopping, eating, I love it all. My husband and I are always trying out new recipes and culinary creations, and we are happiest entertaining and feeding a house full of people. With student loans and low paying wages, we are eating on a budget and always make the most of the ingredients we have. I have always been one who rushes to get to the end of the road and often miss out on the journey itself. I am vowing to slow down, be patient, and savor life one day at a time!
Carnivore, Salty Snack lover, Sports fanatic

Hypothyroidism- Diagnosed in 2012
Hypothyroidism: (Underactive thyroid) is a condition in which your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of certain important hormones. Your thyroid gland (a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the front of your neck) affects the rate at which your body uses fats and carbohydrates, helps control your body temperature, influences your heart rate, and helps regulate the production of protein.
