The bonus tip of cutting the potatoes up before boiling was a great tip with perfect results!

“Great recipe! It appeared on the Huffington Post yesterday, so thought I’d give it a whirl today. My husband and I are impressed with the results! We are not mayo people and are happy to have this flavorful option. I think our dinner guests tonight will be quite happy, as well (if there is any left for them!). The bonus tip of cutting the potatoes up before boiling was a great tip with perfect results! Thank you so much.” – Elaine

Lemon Raspberry Muffins

Last weekend, I drove home to Oklahoma for my baby brother’s college graduation. I remember when he was tiny, and I was terrified of dropping him. Now he’s all grown up, and a few inches taller than I am.

A couple of years ago, he developed an interest in videography out of nowhere. Now, he’s made a business of it. He’s going to come up to Kansas City soon and help me make some Cookie and Kate videos!

Then came a busy weekend in Oklahoma with my family. I’m definitely not finished with the cookbook yet—tons of photos to edit, and presumably lots of work once my editor is done reviewing it—but I’m so pleased with it right now. I can’t wait for you all to see it next spring! Continue Reading »

Anything-Goes Kale Salad with Green Tahini Dressing

Now that the cookbook insanity has calmed down, I’m trying to get back to better habits. Taste testing all day can be tiresome, and the regular breakfast/lunch/dinner routine flies out the window pretty fast.

I know, you think it sounds so great, until your belly is full and you’re staring down yet another muffin. That’s usually when I go on a tirade about the subjectivity of flavor and want to sit on the beach with some multiplication flash cards. At least you always get the right answer with math.

Is it Monday already? It’s rainy and gray here in the Midwest, and I just want to curl up on the couch and take a nap with Cookie. I might have to do that later.

Today, I’m sharing a recipe from a cookbook I’ve been meaning to tell you about for a while. Lindsey of Dolly and Oatmeal wrote and photographed a beautiful book called Chickpea Flour Does It All. Continue Reading »
