About Amy

family-pumpkinsHi everybody! I’m Amy Hanten, The Cooking Mom. I am a real mom who LOVES to cook! It’s a crazy busy world out there, so let me help get your family back to the table. My passion is sharing secrets, stories and recipes with other real moms. My recipes are designed with real moms in mind.

I’m a Midwestern gal from Petoskey, Michigan. I also spent time growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona, where my parents and sister still live. I went to Marquette University and graduated with a degree in Journalism.  After college I worked at a handful of TV stations across the country and found myself back in Wisconsin. I’ve been in Green Bay for nearly 20 years now and am officially a cheesehead and proud of it!

I am a wife to Bob and mom to Riley, Ireland and Levi, our big chocolate lab. They all eat really well! I also host a cooking/lifestyle show called Fox 11’s Living with Amy. It’s one of the only “live” cooking shows in the country. Anything can and does happen which keeps me on my toes. With all of that, I still somehow manage to be a real mom.

I am so excited to have published my very first cookbook! So throw on an apron (less laundry that way) and get cooking!
