First things first!
Nicole Rucker is my guest on this week's Lunch Therapy (click here to listen!).
Nicole is one of the most incredible bakers you'll ever meet: she was the pastry chef at Gjelina-To-Go and Gjusta, won the blue ribbon at the KCRW Good Food pie contest FOUR times, and is now the author of Dappled: Baking Recipes for Fruit Lovers. During today's session, she opens up about leaving Fiona, the bakery she started less than a year ago. It was a painful decision, and we spend some time walking through it; we also talk about her influences, especially her step-mother who opened her up to the world of restaurants. Things get very emotional (there's crying!) but we also have a lot of fun. So click here, check it out, then subscribe to the podcast. Oh and please review it too (but only if you like it!). :)
Otherwise, I made the most incredible sorbet yesterday. It had a WHOLE LEMON, two pounds of strawberries, and two cups of sugar. You just blend all that and churn it. I swear, that's it and it's incredible. See the link below!
Ok, folks... that's all for this week. Hope you enjoy the podcast.
Until next time....
