In 2010 she did her own little Christmas magazine downloadable to her readers that clocked in at an impressive 495 pages. Her first cookbook, appropriately titled, What Katie Ate was a huge success. She came back with What Katie Ate on the Weekend. Frankly, I think Katie is having better weekends that we are...
As you might have guessed by now, her photos are beautiful, her friends are having a glorious time, the food looks magical, and one feels like a bit of a dullard when flipping through the book. But then, that is what some cookbooks are for...to lift us out our complacency and to strive for really beautiful weekends.
We are starting out with a smoothie. Seriously, the girl can make a glass of green sludge look like something you crave!
2 kiwi, peeled
1 green apple, cored
3/4 oz. kale or baby spinach leaves
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 small handful of mint
1 large handful of ice, plus extra to serve
Put all the ingredients and 1 cup cold water into a blender and whiz until smooth.
Pour into chilled glasses, add extra ice and serve.
Now drink that down. You have the entire week to plan and execute a glorious weekend. Don't dawdle!
