Hello and welcome to According to Kateri! I am a wife, a nurse, a mom, and a Midwestern transplant from New York. I used to fancy myself as a cross between Florence Nightingale, Julia Child, Martha Stewart and Carrie Bradshaw. But I guess now I’m more of an Inna Garten, Jennifer Garner, and whoever that smiling woman was on the cover of the most recent Land’s End catalog that snuck it’s way into your mail box.
This Blog started in 2011 as an attempt to take ownership over my body and my health in a time when I was feeling helpless and out of control. In 2013 recognition for my writing about nurses and our profession drove me into more of a nursing focus.
In 2015 I briefly started a separate blog to share some of my recipes, focusing on my longtime love of the kitchen.
The blog is now a combination of all of it; nursing, recipes, motherhood and life’s other adventures. Mostly it is a website that sits stagnant because publishing the dozens of random google searches that fill my headspace would be a comedy no one needs to read.
The thoughts, feelings and experiences shared here are from my perspective and no one else’s. The recipes shared come from hours of pouring over many, many, many, recipes written by people far more experienced myself. I do not claim to have created any of them completely on my own unless stated as such.
