Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here at Kathryn’s Kitchen! My name is Kathryn Mercurio and I am from and live on the beautiful coast of Monterey, California. I have always had a passion for cooking and baking since I was a little girl. I was raised with an Italian family where I have learned many things in the kitchen from my Nana (meaning grandmother in Italian) and Father who owns a couple restaurants on Fisherman’s Wharf – Cafe Fina and Domenico’s on the Wharf. Growing up, I have had a great amount of experience working at my Dad’s restaurant’s and that made me fall in love with food even more. Coming from an Italian family, means being around a lot of food and always being in the kitchen. Being in the kitchen is the way to my heart.
I like cooking and baking so much I decided to photograph and share my recipes with everyone. As I have grown into my passion for cooking and baking, I continue to try out new recipes and enjoy cooking for my boyfriend, family and friends! I currently work in the produce industry so I have developed a new passion for incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables in my recipes. I also love baking so you will find plenty of sweet recipes that will cure any sweet tooth–I do enjoy healthy sweets too so you can find guilt-free sweets and desserts as well. It’s the best of both worlds!
I love eating healthy and clean, but I also believe everything should taste delicious. Living a healthy lifestyle is just as important to me as eating good tasty food so that is why I try to cook as healthy as possible. You will also find some kitchen inspiration, tips, and tricks on my blog!
Thanks again for viewing my page and enjoy!
