2011 Book Festival Author
Amy Hanten

Author Biography

Amy Hanten is "The Cooking Mom" and host of Fox 11's Living with Amy. Her TV show is a highly rated hour-long cooking and lifestyle show and is one of the few live hour-long cooking shows in the country. With live TV anything can--and does--happen, keeping Amy on her toes.

For years, people in Wisconsin have been asking Amy when she was going to write a cookbook, and now she has: The Cooking Mom (2010). This book is full of favorite recipes, stories, and tips for bringing your family back to the table to share meals and time.

Amy is a Midwest gal, originally from Petoskey, Michigan. She graduated with a degree in Journalism from Marquette University in 1988. She now lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin, with her husband Bob, their children Riley and Ireland, and their very large labrador, Levi.
