Originally from the East Coast, now a Los Angeles transplant, Kasey writes for The Dish–the food and wine blog for Clear Channel covering KIIS FM, MyFM, and KOST among other radio stations. She teams up on The Dish with her old elementary school pal, Julie Gauvin, the Vineal Vixen.
Kasey’s educational background in broadcast media, coupled with her knack for cooking brought her to the West Coast on her latest culinary venture. Kasey explains that her love for cooking started around 10 years old, “I used to get home from school and want to have dinner ready for when my parents came home since they both worked. I just loved looking in the fridge and seeing what I could come up with. No recipes needed.”
Kasey’s Kitchen is a blog Kasey developed after her first cooking segment in college. This has become a platform in which she has built a culinary community, “I wanted to be a relatable resource for my peers who were intimidated by cooking and show them how easy and fun it actually is, no matter what budget you’re working with. I still use that motto and have built a social community in Facebook and Twitter around Kasey’s Kitchen.” In addition to reviewing restaurants, products, and offering recipes, Kasey likes to drive home on Kasey’s Kitchen is the beauty of leftovers, she call them “Dinner Do-Overs.” At Thanksgiving Kasey did a “Top 10” of things to do with turkey-day leftovers, “You always need to think ahead, but improvise and have fun with it.”
What’s next for Kasey? She sees television in her future plans, “I have always dreamed of being a talk show host. I had my stab at it when I was young and hosted a talk show on Radio Disney called Kasey’s Korner where I interviewed celebrities such as Britney Spears, Destiny’s Child, 98 Degrees, Backstreet Boys… That’s when I got bitten by the bug and I knew I was meant to do this.”
