About Kathryn

Hey!  I’m Kathryn.  I’m 25, I work as a writer/editor, and I live in Chi-town, USA!  I grew up in the Chicago ‘burbs, then got bored and flew off to spend my college years in St. Andrews, Scotland.  Being over there was amazing, and I definitely got to expand my palate, trying out haggis in Edinburgh, mussels in Brussels, and koshari in Cairo.

While I love eating, I do not consider myself a foodie and I am certainly not a cook. My favorite foods include giant pretzels, cheese of all kinds, astronaut ice cream, sushi, garlic bread, and all sorts of other completely un-classy fare.  I pretty much live off of pasta or any meal that I can prepare in 15 mins or less.

What else…I love 80’s hair metal, “Full House,” and Disney World.  Reality TV is my best friend and I am completely aware that it is rotting my brain.

The idea for this blog just popped into my head one day and I decided it would be a fun challenge that would push my boundaries.  I mean, when else in my life am I going to cook myself eel or scour Asian grocery stores looking for umeboshi?  I’m pumped you’re here visiting my blog and I hope you’ll come back!

If you ever want to drop me a line, feel free to email me at rockin_scotland (AT) hotmail (DOT) com. I’d love to hear what you have to say!

Now enough of this jibber-jabber!  Let’s eat!
