When Kathryne Taylor started her blog, Cookie and Kate, she didn’t start it as a food blog but as a mixture of different interests. She quickly switched to reflect her love of food!!
In 7 years, the vegetarian and all-natural food blog has grown from a hobby to a full-time project. Kathryne researches, develops, cooks, photographs, and writes every recipe on her blog. She has also published a cookbook: Love Real Food.
Originally from Oklahoma, Kathryne now lives in Kansas City. In her spare time, you’ll find her practicing yoga, traveling near and far, and clinking drinks with friends.
