About Kristin Porter, blogger of Iowa Girl Eats
Kristin Porter is a busy wife, new mom and blogger. Kristin started the recipe blog Iowa Girl Eats in 2009 and has been cooking and writing ever since. Kristin enjoys cooking for people around the world through her blog; serving up fresh, family-friendly and in-season recipes, while sharing a bit about her family and home life, too. For Kristin, food is much more than a meal on a plate; it creates connections and memories that last a lifetime.
Though she’s an Iowa girl through-and-through, Kristin’s “farm visits” consisted of trips to the apple orchard or pumpkin patch until she teamed up with the Iowa Food & Family Project in 2013. Kristin then embarked in an agricultural learning journey in an effort to discover more about where food comes from and to meet the farmers who grow and produce it. Through her various farm tours, Kristin gained a greater understanding of farm families and their dedication to the crops, animals, communities and state they’re proud to play a role in.
