Panzanella is a classic summer salad that requires little effort and zero cooking. It’s easy, delicious and can be served as a complete meal, especially on an exceptionally heat-ridden day as we have here, today.
This particular version has a twist, though. Since we’re about a week or two shy [...]
If you’re a bit further south than we are, I’m sure you’ll be overrun with tomatoes and zucchini soon if not already. We’re still greeted by occasional sixty degree days and even cooler nights, so while my tomatoes were scavenged at the farmer’s market, my little diva of a basil plant happily provided.
Max places his freshly washed hands upon the flour and measuring cups. I, still in the kitchen, type in “banana bread recipe” and watch from the corner of my eye. I’m expecting a definite go-to recipe to pop up at the top of my search results, much like it [...]
I use flavored oils in everything when I have them on hand. I find myself rarely digging through the spice cabinet and instead reaching for my trusty flavored oil of the moment, whatever that might be.

Happy 2014 everyone! This year, we’ve decided to hold back on the pretenses and celebrate the new year the proper way.

It is the most beloved, the most requested, the most downloaded and the most adored recipe on Kate from Scratch. This recipe exploded all over the internet when it was first published; shared and linked and highlighted and commented upon regularly for over a year. I got emails saying how “wicked good” [...]
Max disappeared into his room for a few minutes and then this happened. Never mind that mess in the background. One more week and they’re in school, this place will be tolerably clean again, but I digress.
It’s easy, delicious and it doesn’t require heat or dishes; which for a busy and hot summer afternoon, sounds just perfect to me. Tomato and basil cheddar, a thin slice of swiss, handfuls of crunchy and sweet yellow peppers with arugula and spinach for a little hearty green protein and of [...]
Apparently my little rant has gotten quite a bit of attention on twitter from the food blog community who generally feels the same way (or has at one point) about things.
I like you too.
Thanks for dropping by!
Let’s eat brunch. You can bring the bacon [...]
Note: It’s raining and cold here this Memorial Day weekend but I hear it should be nice by Monday (woohoo!). Save the grilling for then and try this simple and easy recipe for rice pudding tonight. It’s the only one I’ve ever used because there’s no sense in messing with perfection, obviously.
