THE LAND O'LAKES TEST KITCHEN — Get to know our cooking, baking and dairy experts. —


Director of the
Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen,
a job she loves.

Many of you may recognize Becky from the Measuring Cup® newsletter or She’s the Director of the Land O’Lakes Test Kitchens – a job she loves. What could be better than being around delicious food and wonderful people every day? 

Becky has spent her entire career in the world of food. Her favorite activities are cooking and baking. Not only are they a stress reliever, but she finds them to be lots of fun as well. Becky began baking as a child, standing on a chair next to her mom helping her add ingredients and mix up dough. Her mom was a wonderful teacher and she wasn’t afraid to try just about anything. Not only did they make made-from-scratch breads, cookies, cakes and more, they also prepared quick, easy meals starting with fresh garden produce and a wide variety of meats, fish and shellfish. Becky’s grandmother also loved to cook and bake and was more than happy to share her special recipes. Her grandparents loved to travel and would bring back cookbooks and recipes from their many adventures, inspiring Becky’s love for regional and ethnic foods. 

It’s a good thing she has family and friends who love to eat all of her creations. Her oldest son, Ryan, is married to fellow Land O’Lakes blogger, Amanda. His favorite recipe is Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Becky enjoys watching them learn to cook and bake and is always happy to provide guidance. It’s been fun to see how Ryan and Amanda like to share the cooking duties and love to entertain. And, since becoming parents to Clark, they have been focusing their cooking efforts on wholesome everyday meals. Her youngest son, Kyle, is a middle school math teacher. He enjoys anything with pasta. When he moved out on his own, he enjoyed receiving all the pasta-making equipment he needed from his mom. He also loves anything grilled. 

Becky looks forward to sharing some of her favorite recipes, along with tips she’s learned along the way.
