Interview with Katherine from Love In My Oven

You don’t need fancy equipment or kitchen tools to create something special for your family. You can use simple ingredients and follow a simple recipe to create something magical!

Tell us about yourself!

Hi! I’m Katherine, with Love In My Oven. I live in the tundra AKA –  Calgary, AB, Canada. OK not really the tundra, but it’s pretty cold for a lot of the year! I currently stay at home with my 3 young kids, aged 4, 2 and 11 months! Needless to say, I’m BUSY. When I’m not folding socks or wiping noses, I’m in the kitchen, cooking or baking up a storm.

Share your approach to food with us: what do you like to cook? Why?

I LOVE to try new recipes. I am always looking for healthier recipes that my whole family will enjoy. I use a ton of veggies in my dishes, and a lot of flavor. I also love to bake, whether its buns to go with our hamburgers, or cookies for an afternoon treat. It brings me so much joy to feed the people I love!

Describe your food personality in 5-7 words

Healthy, satisfying, sweet and sometimes spicy!

What are your favorite recipes? Why? Tell us about them!

Red Thai Prawn Curry with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

Thai food is my all-time favourite. Red curry is DEFINITELY my favorite. I love dishes with a ton of veggies and with a thick, creamy sauce that you can eat with rice (or cauliflower rice).

Find the recipe here.

Green Monster Muffins

I make this recipe ALL OF THE TIME. There is a ton of spinach packed into these muffins, so I’m really glad the kids love them. Everyone in the family loves these healthy muffins! Find the recipe here. 

Zucchini Pizza

In the summer, we make this pizza a lot because our garden is overflowing with zucchini. It’s another great way to get veggies into the kids, and it’s low-carb too! Find the recipe here. 

Dark Chocolate Mini Peanut Butter Cups

The title says it all! Peanut butter and chocolate is the best combo, and these little cups have NO added sugar. They’re the perfect little treat! Find the recipe here. 

What’s your favorite thing about Want the Recipe?

I love that you guys are making life easier by creating a spot to organize recipes! I have so many ideas of what to make swirling around in my head, it’s so nice to have a central spot for everything!

What food can you not live without?

That’s easy. CHOCOLATE.

What kitchen appliance do you swear by?

My favorite appliance is my food processor! I use it pretty much every day.

[I have this Cuisinart Food Processor that’s on’y $40 and it’s awesome. For pestos, butters, etc. I find it to be far better than the Vitamix.]

What are your favorite blogs/ Instagram accounts that you follow? What do you like about them?

I have made some great connections with fellow bloggers. I love Kelsie’s page at @theitsybitsykitchen and Mary Ann over at @thebeachhousekitchen. And Stacey’s amazing creations at @thesugarcoatedcottage. There are so many pages that I love, it’s hard to name just a few!

Do you have any advice for our food community?
