Winter Lettuce Salad with Roasted Peppers and Feta

Winter Lettuce Salad With Roasted Peppers And Feta


I have to start this post by saying thank you for your comments on the last one. You were all so kind! While we knew it would be fun to share the news about the cookbook, we didn’t know it would be that fun. You doubled our joy! You offered to recipe test! I have long believed that blog readers are the unsung heroes of the Internet, the ones who give without expectation, who often listen without being heard, and I want you all to know that we think it’s really something. You’re really something. Thank you. We hope we can create a book that will truly delight and inspire you and celebrate the beauty of what we have found to be a treasured grain. We hope when you hold copies in your hands next year, you’ll know we made this book for you.

News! and Call for Recipe Testers!

News! And Call For Recipe Testers!

Update, March 2014! We turned in the manuscript last month (hooray!) and so we’re no longer in need of recipe testers. Thank you all so much for your interest!

We are writing a cookbook, and writing that sentence is both humbling and shocking because it doesn’t feel real. We are writing a cookbook. (!!) We are people who delight in food, just like most of you are probably people who delight in food, but truthfully the idea of publishing a cookbook was not something we had planned. As you know, this has been 2013: The Year of House Hunting! And sometimes, 2013: The Year of Unexpected Travel! It’s been a year of enormous gifts and real disappointments. It’s been a year of settling into marriage, feeling more comfortable in it, then looking at each other and thinking, Hey, can this sweet life be real!? When the opportunity to pitch a cookbook came our way, like so many other providences before it, from a Hawaii honeymoon to a place to live, we didn’t quite believe it. In fact, despite the fact that we’ve known about this project since September (!!), it’s felt so unbelievable, we haven’t said anything about it here until now. We are not impressive people, I promise you, so despite all the temptation in my heart to let you think we’re getting this opportunity because we’re awesome, it’s just not true. What is true is that we are full of mistakes and failures and misunderstandings, and yet here we are, learning and growing and getting to do something we don’t deserve. It’s such a gift, a grace upon grace, such an opportunity to be stretched and to see how much we have to learn. And right now, as we are almost halfway into our deadlines, as we are eating our weight in einkorn and feeling like we’re ready for a vacation, I need to type this all out here, if only to remind myself. We are writing a cookbook! And now here, for you guys, is the full scoop:
