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

With our Baconpalooza coming up I had bacon on the brain.  I thought I would share a easy DIY bacon recipe with you that looks like it was hard to make, but you'll be surprised.  Because of my ethnicity, teriyaki sauce is used in my kitchen often and compliments the bacon while enjoying the crisp water chestnut.  Plus, step by step instructions in my tutorial.  Why wouldn't you make it!

After 130 Years, Ladies Home Journal Ends It’s Monthly Publication

I remember my mom faithfully reading the Ladies Home Journal magazine when I was a child and as I grew older I would pick one up from time to time while waiting in the dentist and doctor's office.  It's sad to think that something that has been around for SO long won't be available anymore, but at least it won't be gone all together.  They do plan to publish it on a quarterly basis.
