Welcome to Fillmore Kitchen, my collection of deceptively easy and healthy recipes for home cooks looking to step up their kitchen game. Thanks for stopping by – I’m so glad you’re here!
You’ve made it to the right place if you’re looking for recipes that are:
- Achievable – FK recipes are simply designed for home cooks with food curiosity. I simplify all recipes to minimize prep and cooking steps, and look for ways to make each recipe both foolproof and customizable. If I can cook it, you can too.
- Just a little extra – I’m obsessed with the idea of making each meal feel special, whether cooking for a group, a partner, or yourself. To me, this means putting in just enough effort to get fantastic results, without slaving away in the kitchen. If you want something easy enough for a weeknight, but elevated enough for a dinner party, I’ve got you covered.
- Healthyish – But not too healthy. These California-inspired recipes use mostly real ingredients and bold flavors, so that we can save room for the good stuff.
I’m Katie, and I consider myself a homemaking hacker. I try to maximize everyday experiences while limiting my effort, because… anything else just seems silly. And since some of the best moments each day are centered around the table, I’ve made it my mission to make sure that each meal feels like the celebration that it is, without the hassle of party planning.
Fillmore Kitchen is my compilation of foolproof recipes, entertaining hacks, beginner cooking tips, and more. Based in San Francisco, FK is named for my little kitchen in historic Fillmore District. I live there with my resident taste tester and dish washer, Henry, whose favorite recipe is the Coconut Curry Chicken.
