by @thewritermama on May 29, 2011 · 27 comments

I think it was Mary Andonian who first introduced me to Kati Neville and I’m so glad she did. Kati and I share two big passions: food and books. I have been a taste-tester for Kati’s recipes and I can tell you that she definitely knows her way around a kitchen. Please help me welcome Kati!

Kati Neville co-authored the best selling cookbook, Fix, Freeze, Feast. She has written for food publications, such EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine and Costco Connection. Kati’s money stretching tips have been featured in nationally syndicated newspapers, newsletters, and magazines. Currently she is working on recipes for her third book and regularly speaks about “Taming Your Food Budget.” She lives south of Portland, Oregon with two of the pickiest eaters on the planet and her husband.

Fix, Freeze, Feast features 125 delicious, healthful recipes that save families time, work, money, and stress. Learn how to shop for groceries in bulk, prepare easy dishes, and stock your freezer with homemade meals your family will love. Visit online at

1. How has writing (either just the act of writing or writing this book or both) impacted your self-confidence?

Writing has helped me slow down, evaluate and productively respond to criticism. It has freed me to be more confident in myself and my decisions, both professional and personal.

2. What are three words that describe your creative book-writing process?

What’s the hurry?

3. What good has your book created in the world?

I enjoy hearing from readers who are eating nutritious, homemade meals with their families again. Their husbands and kids are happy, plus they’re saving money. It’s been extremely gratifying.
