There are so many worse things than being a bit messy. Accept your fate!

You'll find pomegranate molasses in international markets or Middle Eastern stores. All will be revealed about Team Yogurt very soon. I promise awesomeness (if you like yogurt).

Ah, Brooke. You've been on my list of people to contact, so it's sheer kismet that you've popped up here. I'm always grateful for your kind support and always honored when you pay me a visit. Hello!

Aww, it's truly my pleasure. Thanks for reading:)

Oh, STOP. (And don't tell anyone, but I do write and take pictures just for you.)

Character is the perfect word/euphemism to describe it.

Wee! And cheers, and so much yes.

Every single time you write a comment, I laugh. The stapler is a disaster. I'm looking at it right now, thinking: I should just move it. And yet... there it shall remain. It just seems happy right there at the edge of the ledge, ready to spring into action should a staplemergency arrive without warning.

Hi, sweet you! xoxoxo

Yet one more thing we have in common. I do think there's a whole fetishy thing about writers and their pristine spaces. Generally neat people have generally neat desks, and lives. And more power to them, really. I've just stopped beating myself up over my natural inclinations. Maybe there's a curly hair correlation, or something.

You can definitely swap in any other firm-but-juicy (if that makes sense) fruit for the persimmon. I'm a big fan of the color and floral flavor, but I do think a pear or even an apple would work well. Pepitas are the best. I approve of your obsession (said in a Calvin Kleiny drawn-out whisper. Or are you too young to catch the reference?)

Hello, Cynthia! I'm doing... quite well, and you inspire me equally. Keep doing awesome things with yogurt, ok?

Thanks for the visit and the always thoughtful comments, Mariel. I won't write more here since we just exchanged emails:)

Hi Sherrie, A good question. I focused down pretty tightly on yogurt in the book because it's such a vast topic in its own right and one left relatively unexplored, so, sadly, I'm not much of a kefir expert. I bet there are some good resources out there, though!
Nope, she's from Texas, but it's certainly possible that she got the recipe from someone who got it from the same source as your grandmother. It's the Clifton part that's making me scratch my head, especially as Clifton is an unusual name. I'm delighted that this is the cake you've been searching for, and have no problem with the ongoing mystery and intrigue. It's cool!
So glad you enjoyed them. Thanks for the creative serving idea and for the nice feedback!

Thanks, Brad. Yogurt really is a worldwide phenomenon. It made a tremendously rich topic for research! Bring on the yogurt / yoghurt / yogourt, iogurte!
I love hearing from you, Liren, and am tickled that you still enjoy and are inspired by Ripe. I hope the new book finds just as special a place in your kitchen. Thank you for the words of encouragement and kindness. xo
AIMEE! Thanks for this. I saw the posts about your own book, so I'd like to boomerang the excitement and good wishes right back to you. :)
Thank you so much, Cathy. I'm hoping we'll see each other in March in DC...
