Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

SCHOOL CLOSINGS & DELAYS HERE

Welcome to Steve, who is filling in for Ken today.  Either Ken took the day off or he's run out of his ginormous supply of Tums and needs to stay close to what he calls "home base".  Oh wait, it could be because it's his lovely wife's birthday.

Easy Oven Fries From Taste of Home, A Healthier Alternative

It's a healthy alternative to deep frying potatoes.  Oven fries from Taste of Home!  They are more heart healthy because they're baked.  Plus, you can spice them up any way you wish.  Sea salt, garlic powder, chili powder or you can do what we do in our family.  We use flavored popcorn salt!  Who wouldn't want a side of ranch flavored oven fries with that juicy turkey burger!
