About Kathy

Kathy Hester lives in Durham, NC with her 2 cats who would rather not live together, a cute dog with a belly rub addiction, her very own picky eater, a kitchen garden, and more slow cookers than one person should own.

She makes an effort to eat more locally grown and produced foods, as well as grow more of it in her own backyard. Her first cookbook is being published the fall of 2011 by Fair Winds Press.

She writes a vegan slow cooker blog Healthy Slow Cooking. When she’s not blogging she writes articles for websites like EverythingMom  about food, menu planning and cooking for picky eaters.
