Where do you turn for great food or food inspiration?
At this point, I’m addicted to the NY Times recipes, and have a huge digital recipe box of things from them I’m dying to try.
Do you have any favorite food books/cookbooks?
I have a New Joy of Cooking from ’97 that’s my main go-to for pretty much anything. The Vegetarian Epicure is one my parents gave me at the beginning of a decade-long vegetarian phase starting in my mid-teens that I still use recipes from. (While my kids of course, look up recipes online. One more recent cookbook from a coaching student of mine is Love Your Leftovers by Nick Evans. And the life-changer is my Healthy Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, by the ‘Artisan bread in 5 minutes’ team.
Any favorite kitchen products?
