About

Hello! I’m Kate Hubbard, the cook, writer, & photographer behind Mountain Cravings. I share my life in the mountains with my husband, Kirk, who is Mountain Cravings’ official taste tester and occasional sous chef. Outside of the internet we’re engineers with an unhealthy love of spreadsheets.

ABOUT THESE MOUNTAIN CRAVINGS

For the most part, my recipes are a healthy spin on comfort foods. I update the classics to be enjoyed every day, not just as guilty pleasures. That’s not to say there aren’t some decadent, stuff-your-face meals or desserts, and there may even be a few salads, but it’s all about balance!

The phrase mountain cravings comes from my ingrained love of the Rockies and my insatiable cravings regardless of time of day, availability of food, or any sort of reasonableness. There are no excuses… I crave what I crave, and I am beyond lucky to live with someone who (mostly) puts up with it when I desperately want burritos three nights in a row.

TOOLS OF THE BLOG

I shoot using a Nikon D3300 with 50mm f1.8 lens. Because 90% of my cooking happens after all the beautiful natural light is gone, I often use a pair of homemade EGO Lightboxes similar to those from The Adventure Bite.

Tasty Food Photography from Lindsay at Pinch of Yum has been invaluable in understanding what I’m doing! Mountain Cravings is hosted by Bluehost and uses Hello Bar for email subscriptions.
