Thank you, kind friend. I love sharing this crazy food writing world with talented fellow authors and writers (and friends) like you.

Big hugs back from Up Over. Thanks for linking to your lovely post, A.

That is so, so, SO kind. I really do appreciate how long you've been coming here...

My pleasure. It has a bitter coating on it called saponin that should be rinsed off right before cooking.

Thank you, Denise. You've been there since the very beginning and have always been such a steadfast cheerleader. I seriously cannot wait for your book to come out.

Allegra, you have been so loyal and kind. I won't stop / I can't stop.

Rough patches smooth out. Just you wait and see...

Thank you, thank you, and, for good measure, thank you, Tina.

Shannon, I'm delighted to hear this and am honored to be your weekly pick-me-up.

Glad it appeals to you, Jean. I say eat yogurt every day, and eat this every few weeks.

Hi Erin! I'll make it for you when you come down to San Jose. Stay tuned on that front...

Hi there, Kind of you to drop by. I'm neither a memoirist nor a novelist, but I wear the title of cookbook author very proudly. You can find details about my first cookbook, Ripe, here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762440244?ie=UTF8&tag=5secrul-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=0762440244 My second cookbook (called Yogurt Culture) will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in the spring of 2015.

Bingo, and thanks. I do hope people make it. For the record, it can be made several days ahead and kept refrigerated. I'm still eating it. (I made a lot.)

You are very sweet, Amee, even though you used the word vomit on my food blog. Well played!

You know I love a fellow wordsmith, and that's precisely what you are.

Thanks, Mimi. The cake is so good. A little different, and so nice for a holiday where ingredient options may be limited.

Ha! Right. Now I just cut myself on mandolines. At least I've graduated, sort of, to appliances everyone else cuts themselves on. Not too many people have trouble with tuna cans.

Kathy, I love, love, love this story, and not because you used the expression "she didn't give a fig" (though that weighed heavily in its favor).

You definitely should. It's very thick and solid, so I think it would make a great truffle filling and be easy to roll. (Keep it chilled.) I was surprised at how nice a ganache it made. (Fair warning: it's got some stabilizers, so it's not an ingredient I'm going to turn to all the time. But for an occasional swap, you can't beat the flavor, texture, and -- for those who need it -- dairy-free status.)

We all miss Simon. He was a good pug, even though I tripped over him about 47 times a day. I'm so glad we've stayed connected, too. It's our twelveyearaversary!

They really do. Messy reality is more honest and more fun; plus, it leaves me time for other things, like making and eating cake.

Bed covers are made for keeping you cozy and wiping tears when necessary. Please know I'm thinking of you and your mother-in-law and beaming warmth to you both during this very difficult time. xo

I've known Sean for years and admire the community he's built on Punk Domestics. And you're welcome for the inspiration. Good luck with your project, and let the doubts flow through you. Squelching them doesn't always work!
