foodie fave - {katie from haute apple pie}.

one of my favorite blogs, haute apple pie, is all about fantastic food, decor and parties. the ladies (anne, katie and stef) are friends-- and fellow marquette grads! 

katie is one of my favorites on haute apple. she is expecting her first child-a boy! (check out her nursery inspiration board!) and posts the best decor tips (like how to create a wall gallery). but in the end it's all about the food! and i am dying to try some of her favorite dishes:: 



hungry yet? get to know katie::
What is your favorite meal of the day? Dinner, since it's the only one I don't eat at my desk (sad!).  I'm a huge fan of brunch though.



Favorite Dish you have featured on your blog? That's so hard because I blog about all of my favorites.  I'm going to cheat and pick a few: Almond M&M cookies - a family classic, Zucchini, Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Tartelettes - such a good combo, and Thai Peanut Sauce - I'm totally addicted and it's really versatile.

Favorite Dessert Recipe: 
Strawberry White Chocolate Cupcakes


Signature Drink:  
Mojitos or an IPA


Currently Addicted to: Honest Tea Just Black Tea


Favorite ingredient to bake or cook with? Booze! Seriously though, I love the extra depth of flavor it adds and the reaction you get from people.  It automatically makes the food more fun somehow, even though the alcohol is usually cooked off.


New dish you're dying to try to make? Stuffed squash blossoms - they always look so pretty!

What is your favorite holiday to bake or cook for? Maybe the 4th of July.  While I love Thanksgiving and Christmas, I'm not usually the one cooking. July 4th is great because you have zillions of options since the produce is so fresh and flavorful.


What do you like most about cooking?  I like the creativity of it. I love to experiment so I'm terrible about following recipes.  Since I've had a garden I also love making things with food I grew myself. There's just something so satisfying about that.



a huge thank you to katie for sharing her haute favorites. be sure to hop over to haute apple pie and see what all the fuss is about. 

xo,
