About the blog...

A Scant Half Cup is a passion project. It's part recipe invention and part ramble. It's a challenge and a love letter.

Founded in August 2015, A Scant Half Cup sings odes to messes, adventures, and history. The blog would be nothing without friends-turned-sous-chefs or a boundless curiosity. Also, butter. Butter is essential.
