Meet fellow kitchen sister, Kiley Hagerty, whose passion for cooking started at the age of five, with the unwrapping of her first EasyBake oven; after baking every packet of cake, cookie and brownie mix under the little pink appliance’s 40-watt lightbulb, she was hooked.

Seventeen years later – after working with some of the industry’s biggest names, including EatingWell Magazine – Kiley is showcasing her culinary prowess with the “On Your Own” cookbook, an all-encompassing guide to the kitchen for women on-the-go. From healthy and delicious recipes to food budgeting, essentials cooking tools and kitchen layout, this witty book is sure to have readers laughing mid-whisk.

“My aim is to get the ‘Carrie Bradshaws’ of the world to stop using their oven as a sweater drawer,” said Kiley. “Every year a fresh new batch of ladies set off on their own, turning a new life chapter and I want this book to help make their journey easier, funnier and more enjoyable.”

The cookbook will go to print this fall, but in the meantime, you can find out more about the San Francisco transplant at and her Facebook page (

Happy Friday Everyone!
