Hope you can join our chat: all about cookbooks!
 
You're invited to the sixth edition of the KS Connect Plus, a twice-a-month Google Hangout On Air (HOA) -- "The Super Cookbook Author Hangout (You'll feel like you can cook better just for listening)"

This week's guests will be +Jenny McGruther of the Nourished Kitchen blog, author of the brand new book of the same name, +Tess Masters aka The Blender Girl, whose brand new book also carries her blog name, and +Ricki Heller , author of "Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free" and "Sweet Freedom" and whose blog carries her own name. Phew!

These are some talented ladies on the keyboard and in the kitchen, and I can't wait to talk about how they develop recipes, balance blogging, book-writing and LIFE, and their views on how to eat healthy in our toxic fast food culture.

We're going to have to talk FAST to get all this in (and some other fun questions I have up my sleeve). If only we could all be in the same room so they could just bring the delicious goodies from their books...sigh. Taste-o-vision, someday!

Bring questions and don't worry about what you're wearing - on an HOA, only the hosts are "on air" and the rest of you just get to watch and can ask questions in text through the chat.

Monday, March 31st
9:00-10:00 pm ET (New York Time)
6:00-7:00 pm PT (Cali time)
Check your time zone here-->http://goo.gl/sa8CdP

If you can't make it "live" you might still want to click "Maybe" below. That will ensure that you get reminders including the link to the event page, where immediately following the hangout, the full video will be available to view. You can watch whenever you want!

This is a regular bi-monthly HOA hosted by Kitchen Stewardship - once a month we have hangouts for bloggers for professional development and once a month the topic will be about real food/natural living for anyone to attend. Watch for the next KS Connect Plus HOA on 4/21 (schedule is odd because of Easter) about building community and the power of helping each other out (for bloggers). There might be a daytime hangout with my readers to gab about using technology for meal planning during my spring break week, 4/4. If you'd like to join me live, I'd love to hear from you!

Infused with the fragrant spice of the traditional Ethiopian spiced butter - niter kibbeh, sweet potatoes take on a subtle, uplifting flavor in this version of the French classic pommes anna. Be sure to take the time to weigh down the sweet potatoes as the bake so that they develop a dense and soft cake-like texture.

"Leaky Gut"?
What a crock of nonsense.

Dairy-free Chai Coconut Ice Cream is on the blog today -> super fragrant with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom.
Just like a cup of chai, this recipe is easily adaptable to your favorite chai spices and you can tinker easily with spice amounts. Cardamom is one of my favorite spices, but not everyone has it in their cupboard. It’s more than worth seeking out; just make sure you don’t over measure, as it’s a potent, beautiful spice.

I'm over at Mommypotamus today with a recipe for Spiced Whole Grain Porridge for nursing moms.
Note from Mommypotamus: If you happen to see me today and there's a light bruise on my arm, it's only because I had to pinch myself to make sure this is really happening. Jenny of Nourished Kitchen is one of my favorite bloggers ever – and I mean OF. ALL. TIME – and I am so thrilled to share ...

If only she could be as nice on her Facebook page as everyone thinks she is in person. I was so excited about your book and am blown away by how rude you were to me for asking a question and how you go after people on your page and refuse to answer questions.

Loved this post on the health benefits of Kombucha.  We've been brewing a fair amount of kombucha and Jun!

I do the continuous brew. I love it and it helps with inflammation.

Must make this ...
This Roman dish, which pairs beautifully with pork chops, can be made with regular broccoli, broccoli rabe, or romanesco.

Mark Bittman has a variation on this using broccoli rabe which you first blanch for two minutes - I know, I know losing some of the vitamins in the water but it takes off that bitter edge - and then sauteing it briefly with olive oil and then finishing it in the oven with some Parmesan cheese on top. Fantastic.

Boozy Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles today on the blog.
Spiked with Grand Marnier and Frangelico, these whimsical, boozy little truffles are a festive treat for the holidays. Unrefined cane sugar and chestnut honey bring sweetness to ground hazelnuts, while cocoa and orange zest give them a deep flavor. Chestnut honey, rich and dark with chocolate undertones, lends a wonderful depth of flavor to these truffles. I purchase chestnut honey online (available here) and use it sparingly, only for special tr...

Our new favorite kombucha recipe: Cinnamon Spice!
A fermented tea, kombucha is a lively, fizzy probiotic beverage that is at once faintly tart with hints of apple cider. In this version, classic kombucha tea undergoes a second fermentation that infuses it with the flavors of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and sweet spices.
