You may have noticed I’ve been a little absent for a while — sorry about that! But I haven’t been slacking, I swear! In fact, I’ve been pumping out 2 new books for y’all to enjoy, just in time for the holidays. First up, let’s talk about COOKIES.
To be honest with you, I’ve always kind of hated baking. But I also get super jealous when I am around a friend’s house and they can just whip up a delicious cookie or baked treat in no time. How the hell do they do it?! I find baking so complicated, so time consuming, so messy, so frustrating! But after my first cookbook came out this summer, I got a lot of feedback from readers saying they wanted more impatient friendly desserts. (Admittedly, my first book did have some dessert recipes – like this one! – but was mostly focused on savory). So I decided to bite the bullet and create a book all about the one sweet treat everyone loves – cookies.
I needed back up, though; there was no way I was going to be able to figure out how to create a bunch of cookie recipes without some help! So I called up my friend, Claudia Sidoti, former Test Kitchen Director of Food Network, and asked her if she would want to write this book with me. To my delight, she said yes! Having Claudia in the kitchen with me as my “Cookie Coach” to co-create Impatient Cookies was a real game changer. Claudia has developed, tested, and baked literally tens of thousands of cookies during her time as a caterer, while working at Food Network, and now as head of recipe development at Hello Fresh. She had tried and true cookie tips and tricks and fantastic hacks, all of which are shared in Impatient Cookies.
