Hi, I am Katie Bernabei and welcome. My blog Finally Getting Together is about food bringing people together, whether it be a normal weekday dinner to a holiday event. Our family events most often center around food, and my recipes have been tried and sure to please. My recipe book consists of delicious dishes and baked goods that have been passed down from family and friends. I grew up watching my mother cook and bake. My father always manned the grill, and made delicious Sunday breakfasts. Almost every night my mother, father, two sisters, and I gathered together at the table and ate a homemade dinner as a family, and I have continued this tradition with my husband and two year old son.
My husband Mike and I live in a small farm town in Illinois with my son Cooper and daughter Chloe. My husband is a rugged outdoorsman who lives to hunt and fish (alot like those Duck Dynasty guys, minus the million dollars), he works construction and works very hard. I work part time as a dental hygienist, and the rest of the time I am home reigning in my kids.
I am not a journalist or a professional photographer. I am not wealthy nor do I have a gourmet kitchen with high end appliances (my stainless steel appliances are high end to me), but I love to cook, bake and entertain family and friends, and want to share my recipes with all of you! Many of my recipes are family staples and have been passed down to me. I have also searched cookbooks and the web for recipes, and through some trial and error, have found some real keepers, and will credit where these recipes originated when I can.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to hear how your dishes turn out if you use one of my recipes as well as any questions. I hope you are able to make your friends and family smile with these dishes.
