My name is Katherine Elizabeth.


I’m a worrier, a cat AND dog lover, a TV junkie, and a wanna-be gamer. I collect pens and notebooks like wildflowers, and am always looking for new recipes to try.

Food has always made me happy. Nothing perks me up like someone saying they love something I’ve made. Tackling new techniques gives me a thrill no roller coaster can match. My love of cooking has survived stabbing myself, slicing the tip of my thumb off with a mandoline, and burning my entire palm on an oven-safe skillet.

Books have always been my comfort zone. They help me de-stress and are a wonderful source of entertainment.


In 2014, I was incredibly unhappy. My job was awful, I was constantly under stress, and I was letting it affect every aspect of my life. So I quit my job, started Messy Counters and Floured Paperbacks, and never looked back.

I want to share the magic of cooking and reading with you. I want to share my recipes and cooking stories, as well as my current reads and books thoughts. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
