Welcome! I’m Kelsey, the author & owner of Northern Yum since 2016. Making and sharing delicious food has always been a big part of my life. I grew up helping my mom in the kitchen. She’s a wonderful baker and cook and taught me so much.

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 the end of 2015, I worked as a finance analyst. Now, I’m a food blogger and recipe developer. It’s been a big change, but I’m loving it.

We live in the beautiful state of Montana. If you’re ever traveling through and need any tips (especially on where to eat!), just shoot me an email.

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