About K&K






The K&K Test Kitchen started as a collaboration between daughter, Kelsey, and mom, Kim, in February 2010.  Kelsey was bored and waiting to begin her first grown-up job.  Since she had been collecting recipes from various cookbooks and blogs for a long time, she decided to start to test out those recipes and to write about them in a blog so her friends and family could enjoy the results.

The blog was meant to be a reason to start experimenting in the kitchen, and it has truly helped us both become more adventurous in our cooking and eating habits.  We tend to cook meals for everyday, focusing on quality, common ingredients and recognizing that we aren't all gourmet chefs.  We have also started to experiment with developing our own recipes, and from time to time you will see some of our family favorites pop up on the blog.  We try to include a variety of recipes from healthy to indulgent, so there's something for everyone.  However, we've been leaning toward the healthier end of the spectrum lately.  We hope you enjoy the blog, the recipes, and our stories about cooking!  Here's to family, friends, and good food!



A little about the K's

Kelsey is an Economist by day.  At night, she indulges in her passion for cooking and experimenting in the kitchen.  Kelsey recently competed in her first triathlon and is hooked on the sport, she is also a "barre star."  She is learning to appreciate Ottawa, but still tries to travel as much as possible to visit her friends and family who live all over the U.S.  She tries to live everyday to the fullest.

Kim is a hockey wife and mom to two daughters (Kelsey and Taryn). She is the type of person who can make friends easily, anywhere she goes and it has served her well throughout the years and years of moves that have taken her all over North America.  Recently settled in Arlington, VA, Kim is looking forward to getting to know her new city, picking up knitting again, and getting back into the kitchen!  She enjoys travelling in the summer with husband, Tim, in their RV and is learning how to fly fish.

Both of us love good food and good wine!  Sharing that food and wine with our family and friends is our favorite way to connect with people!
