Welcome! I’m Kelsey, the author, & owner of Northern Yum. Making and sharing delicious food has always been a big part of my life. So sharing yummy recipes with you here at Northern Yum is a natural extension of that. I enjoy entertaining & hosting special events. And let’s be honest the best part of both of those is the FOOD.

Until just recently I worked as a finance analyst. Now I’m a food blogger and stay at home mom. It’s been a big change, but I’m loving it.

Here’s my family – my husband Kevin, 2 crazy beautiful kids Addison & Noah, and our fur baby, Chili dog.

We live in the beautiful state of Montana. I’ll be sharing pictures in the blog, so keep a lookout. And if you’re ever traveling through and need any tips, just shoot me an email.

Thank you for stopping! I’m honored to have you here!
