Welcome To The Kitchen McCabe, a blog based on wholesome recipes, beautiful food and photography.
My name is Kayley. I am a culinary graduate with a passion for making and baking pretty things. I am a Freelance Recipe Developer, as well as a food photographer and writer. I live in a little town at the tip of Northern Utah with my husband and three children. I started this blog in 2013 as a way to catalog the recipes I developed. A few of my favorite things are eating late night baked goods, singing Broadway musicals at the top of my lungs, and snuggling my babies.
My Food Philosophy: Though, as a trained chef, I’ve always found quality of food and ingredients to be important, I’ve been gravitating towards a cooking style that takes into account the nutritional quality of the dishes I make. Though I do not always follow a gluten or dairy free diet, I try to make each recipe I develop a little better for you. I try to completely avoid processed foods and make everything that comes out of my kitchen from scratch(where time allows). The recipes you find on this blog are a bit of a between ground for those who want to cook in a healthier way, but are not ready to go full speed into a more restrictive diet. Though I sometimes use white flours and sugars, I try to incorporate whole grain flours, un-refined sweeteners, dairy free ingredients and vegetarian or vegan dishes.
