I must admit I don't think I've ever had a saucy, hot buffalo chicken sandwich. See? You didn't know you needed this; I didn't know I needed that.

Aw, I love that. And, yes, somehow those themes do find their ways into the same literary spaces often, don't they? It's really nice to see you here.

Indeed. The nice thing about the sandwich is that it's just as good with English cucumbers and without the tomatoes. A year-round lunch or dinner (with a friendly bowl of soup).

I appreciate the kindness, Barry. Thank you.

Always my pleasure. Thanks for the visit.

Thank you so much, Poulami.

Thank you very, very much, Poulami. Those are very kind words. Welcome!

Please do. It's a beauty, and I'm positive you'll enjoy it.
Ah, thanks so much, Denise.
Hi Allegra! My feeling is, the more options the better. People who want faux meat can have it, and some very well may. But if it's not palatable, I think both meat-eaters and vegans who prefer tastier plant-based protein sources are going to eschew it.
Exactly. To be clear, a small handful of recipes do call for foods like bread or pasta, but Erin always puts a bracket in the ingredients list for the gluten-free folks (like herself) to point them to a page listing her recommended GF brands/alternatives. In this way, she speaks to both parts of her audience (non-gf and gf) without interrupting the flow of the recipe. In the overwhelming majority of the recipes, though, this is a non-issue.
Thanks, Cynthia. Erin does indeed have some good company in terms of people who handle this issue with skill. Ultimately, I just think she's smart to create food that's universally appealing -- both to those who share her restrictions and to those who don't. {I always appreciate your kind words!}
It did ask you. (It told me it did.) So you're good.
Actually, I am allergic to a few things, but they're unusual enough that they're extremely easy to avoid. I know. I'm not actually sure why I've never put gremolata on steak before. It takes about 5 seconds to make and completely changes the nature of a dish. Freshness, color, flavor in one fell swoop. GOOD STUFF.
It might be easier, and safer, for you to just make the steak. But I'll never judge. Have at it.
Wonderful! Given the season I'd suggest starting with the corn with cilantro-lime salt (yellow chapter), the blueberry-nutmeg cake (purple & blue chapter), and the peach mascarpone flatbread (orange chapter). These are big favorites among my readers and all are very simple to make. Enjoy!

I'm sure you could -- maybe make a quick streusel to sprinkle on top of the plums. I'd probably reduce the sugar in the plums slightly if going that route so the whole dessert doesn't end up too sweet (assuming your streusel includes oats, nuts, brown sugar). But you won't ruin it!

That is very smart thinking. The recipe makes so many that you can give him half the pan and still have 25 bars left for yourself. Win.

She emailed to tell me she made them for your photo demo. I really wish I'd known about it because I would have absolutely come along, and you know I don't generally drive up that way. If you give another photo class, will you let me know? I'm 100% serious. xo

Just buy an extra pound for eating, maybe?

Bon voyage, friend. I'm always shocked when the stone fruit season ends. It seems to disappear without warning. I'll cross fingers that the plums will wait for your return...

Of COURSE.

Plum cake and plum bars can be friends. There's room in the world (and in my belly) for both. Enjoy!
