Making Life Changes

Taste of Home -Karen with eggsAfter nearly 10 years as a Culinary Specialist with the Taste of Home Cooking Schools, I am stepping away from my role as we head into the spring 2016 season. I love what I do, so it was a tough decision. But, I am at a stage of life where I need to be closer to home, especially to offer more support to my aging parents.
I will be pursuing freelance food-related work in my home state of Iowa, and I look forward to these new experiences. If you want to follow along with me, I will be posting regular updates and recipes on this blog at and also on Facebook at

And, now that I’m not of the road with Taste of Home (which was demanding of my time), I am available to take on new freelance projects. You can check out more details about that HERE
