Emily Farris Editor of feedmekc.com and author of "Casserole Crazy: Hot Stuff for Your Oven"

Emily Farris is the editor of feedmekc.com, a freelance food writer, and most important, a very good eater.

Her Annual Casserole Party has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, Time Out New York and Gawker. Her first cookbook, “Casserole Crazy: Hot Stuff for Your Oven,” was published by a Penguin imprint in 2008.

Emily eventually branched out from casseroles, and her food and lifestyle writing has appeared in CountryLiving.com Gourmet.com, Urban Farm Magazine, ELLEDECOR.com, BUST, Nerve.com, Women’s Wear Daily, CNN.com, My Midwest, The Pitch, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, Edible Brooklyn and many publications and websites you’ve probably never heard of.

These days, you can hear her talking about eating on the feed me kc podcast and the Food Critics edition of Central Standard Friday on KCUR (Kansas City's NPR affiliate) and subscribe to her very sporadic KC food newsletter, The Feed. She also writes about her attempts at frugality on her newest blog, Pyrex and Pennies.

Emily and her husband Kyle are currently trying to turn their extra lot in the city into a little urban farm. She collects turquoise trinkets, good whiskey, vintage Pyrex, and the letter “Q.”
