Welcome to Kate's Plate!

Welcome to my blog! I’d like to thank you for caring enough to visit and read my posts! I am new to the world of blogging, and have decided to create this site for several reasons.

I have a few friends who blog about various subjects (their families, travels, etc.), and I really enjoy reading the chronicles of their lives. I am a lurker on a couple food blogs, and love looking at the food photos and seeing what others are cooking. I share recipes with my friends, and have even been known to put together a whole book of homemade recipes for friends. (That was a bit too labor and time intensive, so you two ladies are the lucky two!). I hope that this will be a more resourceful way to share my recipes with others. Finally, when I travel I take pictures of all of my meals, mainly to share with my mother and sister who are equally as interested in food. I hope that this blog will give readers some ideas of different things to try in the kitchen, and also provide you with recommendations of where to eat if you ever venture to the cities I have traveled to or lived in.

I would like to give the disclaimer that I have no formal culinary training. I am taught by my mother (who is an amazing cook), by the books/magazines I read and shows I watch (shout out to the Food Network!), and by experimenting and figuring things out as I go along. I am open to your feedback, suggestions, questions, and comments!

I would like to give my husband photography credit for the images posted here. All photos are property of myself and my husband, unless otherwise noted.

Bon Appétit!
