About the BellaOnline Quick Cooking Editor

Karen Hancock has been cooking, eating, reading about, dreaming about, and writing about Food, her favorite subject, for over 40 years. She grew up in Utah with a stay-at-home, fabulous-cook Mom who taught her to cook, and inspired her to learn everything she could about food. She started her own catering business, Eclectic Epicurean, about 20 years ago and also teaches cooking classes to women’s, religious, community, and private company groups. Karen is a flight attendant for a major airline and travels the world, tasting new dishes, then recreating those dishes at home to use in her catering business, cooking classes, and of course, BellaOnline articles. Taste testers (referred to as The Official Hancock Tasters) include her husband, four grown children, two amazing grandchildren, and friends, neighbors, and fellow flight attendants.

Karen is an appliance junkie (i.e., owns and uses over 60 slow cookers in all sizes and shapes because "the one with the most wins") and loves to develop recipes using them. Instant Pots are her new hobby, so plan to see lots of new recipes using these new wonder pots. She also collects cookbooks and reviews them online. Some of the reviews are included on this site, so check out The Quick Cook´s Bookshelf section of this site if you´re looking for a new cook book to add to your collection.

Although she loves to be in the kitchen, cooking, traveling several days of the week, and running a business while at home gives her a minimum amount of time to prepare dishes for her family, prepare recipe tests for her classes, and spend time with her busy business-owner husband.

Cutting prep time by utilizing modern gadgets and developing new ways to make prep faster without sacrificing nutrition or flavor has been her goal, and as the Quick Cooking Editor she will present articles, recipes, and timesaving tips designed to help busy women everywhere prepare quick meals that are delicious, nutritious, and attractive in a minimum amount of time.

She would love to hear from you--comments, questions, suggestions, recipe requests, and timesaving hints.
