Coconut bacon

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

Food and Farming Awards 2016: Special Edition

Sheila Dillon presents the 2016 BBC Food & Farming Awards in this extended online special.

At the ceremony in Bristol, Sheila and three co-hosts – Yotam Ottolenghi, Angela Hartnett and Stefan Gates – guide us through the stories of the finalists and reveal this year’s winners.

This full-length edition, available to download and listen online, also features an extended version of the Derek Cooper Outstanding Achievement Award, presented this year to Dr Joan Morgan.

The ceremony marked the climax of a long process – starting with listeners’ nominations, then an expert team of judges sifting through your nominations in each of the categories, before making their visits right across the UK.

On stage at the ceremony, Sheila is joined by award givers including Jancis Robinson, Ken Hom, Mitch Tonks and the BBC Director General Lord Tony Hall. The finalists – and their stories – are insightful, inspiring… and delicious.

My mom’s side of the family gets together every Fourth of July for a family reunion. Each year, we meet up at our cousins’ lake house for some totally classic Independence Day activities. The lake community holds an egg toss competition, turtle race and a talent show when the sun goes down, no less.

One of my favorite aspects of the day, other than hanging out with some of my favorite people, is the potluck spread inside the cabin. Everyone brings something to share. Potluck dishes cover the table and overflow onto the kitchen island. I fill my plate with homemade salads and find some room for potato chips—it’s the one day a year that I gorge myself on potato chips. America!

This year, my family is headed East to my cousin’s wedding in Florida, and I’m going South for my best friend’s wedding shower (I’m the maid of honor). I’m already feeling sentimental about the lake, so here are twenty fresh, healthy, potluck-appropriate recipes to bookmark for the summer.

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! We’re both stubborn perfectionists, and we’re both always right, so stay tuned for how that turns out. 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.
