Our favorite food bloggers inspire us to cook at home and make us hungry every day. We wanted to know them a little better. So we’re getting together to chat all throughout the Holidays!

Kathryne Taylor is the cook and photographer behind Cookie + Kate, a source for eminently inventive vegetarian fare and culinary eye candy. It is also the only blog we know that is officially co-authored by a dog. Read on for her answers to our holiday food questions…

What’s your favorite dish to bring to a Thanksgiving potluck?

My roasted brussels sprouts and cranberries with barley is always a hit. It’s easy to put together and I get a kick out of watching friends discover that they actually do like brussels sprouts. It provides colorful visual relief to a table that tends to be full of beige foods, too!

Sweet Potatoes vs. Mashed Potatoes?

Generally speaking, sweet potatoes (made spicy instead of extra sweet, please). My mom prepares my great grandmother Lucille’s recipe for cream cheese-laced mashed potatoes on holidays, though, and I always look forward to that indulgence.

Favorite weird Thanksgiving leftover meal?

Well, I don’t eat turkey, but you might catch me eating leftover pumpkin pie for breakfast the day after.

What’s another blog that inspires your food POV?

Discovering Heidi Swanson’s blog, 101Cookbooks, was a revelation. She showed me that vegetarian cooking offers endless variety and flavor combinations.

Thanks Kathryne!
