Katie Stew

A rich, simmering blend of my favorite things

A New Decade



A new decade. A fresh opportunity for change and growth. I’m looking at this new year, not in terms of resolutions, but in terms of goals.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time. This blog thing. I kept one for 2 years in college on a site that I don’t believe functions anymore. So, it is time to start anew and share my world with you.

The title of the blog, Katie Stew, is an homage to the variety of topics I plan to discuss and the mishmashed, cumulative nature of my world.

For starters, the obvious topic is food. I love food. I love to cook. I love to eat. And, I love talking about food. I like to think (and have been told) that I’m a pretty good cook, but I tend to struggle with the day to day necessity of cooking. I plan to spend a large chunk of time discussing recipes, cooking successes and failures.

Another large topic of interest for me is literature. I love to read. In fact, I started a book club at the end of 2008 to feed my obsession. Gathered all my friends and coerced them into reading and discussing with me a wide variety of books. I will be discussing the books we complete, in addition to the other books that I sneak on the side.

I am also an artist. My mediums are many. I like to paint. I craft, sew, and I recently created a line of dress hats for women. The whole line is currently listed for sale on Etsy.com. My background is in theater design, so I have a strange and varied skillset. It means that opportunities for new forms of art are opening to me all the time. I will be showing some of my work here on the blog as well as discussing different materials, techniques, tips, and disasters that develop.

I am excited about the journey that I am about to embark on. A new decade. A new blog. A new community to share with.
