Writer for the Land O'Lakes Blog

As a 30-year-old wife and mother of three, Julie knows all about the importance of finding quick, healthy meals that kids will enjoy. In fact, she's been known to refer to her cooking style as casual—fresh meat and vegetables with fresh herbs combined with a love of wine.

Her love for cooking and baking started at an early age when she grew up in South Texas. Being the only daughter in a family of five, she loved nothing more than helping her Mom in the kitchen. By the age of twelve, she could prepare a Thanksgiving feast that could rival even the best of cooks. She later added numerous skills to her repertoire, including learning how to professionally decorate cakes and cookies. Clearly, Julie has a wealth of knowledge—and she's eager to share it.
