So who am I anyway? Well, my name is Trina Krug – queen of my house, mom extraordinaire to five kids, wife to my blazin’ hot firefighting man, and recipe engineer.  I run a low carb and keto blog over at and I publish a weekly podcast called “The Keto Living Podcast” available on iTunes and Stitcher.

I have been active in the health and fitness industry for many years. I spent 20 years as an Engineer and developed code and algorithms in a niche that only a few had the knowledge enough to dominate, let alone participate in. I am one of only a few and went on to be awarded several U.S. patents for my work.

My passion for foods that would support health, however, took the forefront.  I was an engineer developing algorithms to solve problems. Then I traded in algorithms for recipes, inputs for ingredients, and random outputs for super tasty foods.

It wasn’t a smooth process.  Learning to cook and all….   It was a rather bumpy and hilarious process.  I learned quite a few tips and tricks in the kitchen and that is how THIS blog was born!  I want to pass those along to you!

Welcome to In The Kitchen With Trina – I hope you find all the kitchen tips and tricks that you need to make YOUR life in the kitchen a breeze!

I am queen of mistakes in the kitchen. BUT I learn from every single one! It is my mission to pass along all the "How To" kitchen tips that I've learned over the years.
