What Katie Ate

Love to cook? Looking for some inspiration in the kitchen? In need of a few good recipes? Well let me tell ya, I sure could use some action in my kitchen because I’m stuck in a cooking rut these days. I’ve been eating lots of the same things over and over again (poor husband!) and I feel like my menu is a bit like groundhog day! I could live on watermelon and ice cream all summer… Do you get in these cooking ruts too? I feel like I’m the only one sometime… and that I’m being a bad wife which makes me feel kinda sad. That’s why when I came across a lovely food blog today called What Katie Ate I felt like my eyes have been opened to a whole new world of inspiring yummy things to whip up at home. Go Holly, go Holly, go! go! go!

What Katie Ate

I hope that you enjoy this pretty blog, it’s special because all recipes and food photography are produced by the blog author herself, Katie in Sydney, who is a professional food photographer. Nom, nom, nom!

If you love art and design, you may also enjoy Katie’s other blog called What Katie Saw. Enjoy!

    I can definitely relate to a cooking rut! I dread the question “what should we have for dinner tonight??”. I always say I like to cook, just not everyday – you jsut run out of inspiration! I’ll definitely be checking out her blog – hopefully this will help with those to-be-expected ruts!

    Thank you – hope your day is lovely :)

    Love this! The photos are so beautiful – I want to frame them for my kitchen :)

    Also, how come my food is never this pretty when I cook/bake?

    At this point, I don’t think I’ll find time to get over to What Katie Saw if I can’t pull myself away from What Katie Ate! :) YUM!

    But I specially liked what you wrote…I havent been inspired to cook lately, but with two hungry boys and I husband I have to. I could also use some encouraging words like you did…” go ishtar, go ishtar…”

    I just wanted to thank you for introducing Katie and her awesomeness to me today. It was if you typed a little present into my inbox with your fingers. You give the best gifts Holly.
