Katie Pruitt is not a chef or even a home cook. She is a writer with a lifelong passion for toast.

After spending several years teaching composition, literature, and women’s studies in colleges across northeast Indiana, she is currently reinventing herself as a project manager and copywriter working remotely from her apartment in San Francisco, where the avocado toast scene is blowing her mind.

Although she grew up just a couple miles from the Aunt Millie's bakery in Fort Wayne, Indiana, she now has loaves of Aunt Millie's bread flown to her on a regular basis.

When she isn’t writing, she is reading, watching IU basketball, or playing with her cats. Always, she is eating toast.
