“I learned to cook during the pandemic because we couldn’t eat out. My skills were very basic, but I learned to step up my game with nothing else to do.”

shared Katherine (Katie) Griffin of Auburn

Katie has been married to her best friend, Adam, for twelve years. They met in grade school thanks to their mothers and have been nearly inseparable since. Adam is a Sales Engineer for Rhino Tool House. Together, they have four children — Lucas (10), Gamble (7), Annabelle (6), and Leilah (15 months).

“You should know we are very competitive,” Katie said. “Uno is a true sport at our table after dinner.”
Family is incredibly important to the Griffins, and they find joy in simply being together.

“Our whole life is centered around the family we have created. Our kids are our best friends; we hike, exercise, and travel with them,” said Katie.

She went on to share that her family is very active and enjoys the gym. They love to travel internationally, and when close to home, they enjoy racing go-karts.

Immediate family isn’t the only thing that takes priority for Katie but also her extended family. She has seven younger sisters and family potluck and game nights are planned often.

Katie enjoys doing all the cooking when the family eats at home. Her chef in training is her oldest, Lucas, and he is pretty passionate about being in the kitchen with her.

The family decided to share a Chicken Alfredo recipe this month. Katie says her family loves Italian and that her seven-year-old Gamble loves it so much that he would probably eat Alfredo and pizza three times a day if she let him.

“I got the courage to make homemade Chicken Alfredo in the spring of 2020 because no Olive Garden was open,” said Katie.

“I found this recipe on Pinterest, and now I don’t even measure ingredients. I throw it all together and multiply the recipe times four to feed us all.”

  1. Boil noodles and set aside.
  2. Saute chicken in a cast iron skillet with 2 tbsp butter, 1 clove of garlic, seasoning of your choice (I like Chicago steak seasoning) and cook until done then set aside.
  3. Make the Alfredo sauce by first melting 2 tbsp butter in skillet, then add 2 tbsp garlic and slowly pour in cream. Add salt and pepper, then bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and stir for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Remove the sauce from heat and add in the Parmesan cheese.
  5. Combine noodles, chicken and sauce. Enjoy!
