Fish_The Perfect Egg Hi Guys! Our book The Perfect Egg, is finally out and available for purchase!! We’re so excited to share this book with you! Although this is technically our third cookbook, we’re the most excited about this one. We poured more of ourselves into this project this past year, than any other project we’ve done together. We’re so very proud of this book and hope you all enjoy sifting through it and cooking from it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Now a little more about the book! It’s what we like to call, an all-encompassing egg book! You’ll find the usual suspects in there: from pancakes, to frittatas, to deviled eggs, and baked egg boats…

But what we think makes this book truly special (we think), is that we really strived to provide as many fun egg recipes from around the world as we could possibly fit in. Like Shrimp Okonomoyaki or Quindim.

Eggs themselves are such an extraordinary ingredient/food that we wanted to showcase them and their numerous uses; so you’ll see that we added a bunch of egg cookery techniques in our “basics” chapter as well as recipes that cover items like breads, pastas and condiments/sauces. Yay! This book is filled with such good stuff. We literally packed it as full as we possibly could we amazing recipes!

We also worked very closely with our amazing team at Ten Speed Press to make this book a piece of art. We are SO PROUD of this book and worked hard to make every single little detail awesome.

We’re so incredibly excited about the release of The Perfect Egg and want to kick things off with a little book giveaway! So with this first giveaway (more to come!!!!) we are starting out with a signed copy of our book (we will personalize it or do whatever you want!) and these super cute copper egg cutters from Food 52 that we love so much (egg cutter photos from Food 52 photo by James Ransom).

Roasted_Sweet_Potato_Quinoa_Salad Quinoa_Salad_recipe Sweet_Potato_quinoa_salad Last week we posted my soup crush of the season and today is my grain salad crush of the season, this roasted sweet potato and quinoa salad. I love roasted vegetables, especially root vegetables and I’ve been particularly keen on sweet potatoes this last month. I love how hearty, sweet and creamy they are when roasted and simply seasoned with salt and pepper.

Grain salads in general are my favorite “big batch meals”. I love cooking up a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week, and throwing some into a bowl everyday with other things I happen to have lying around the pantry and fridge, each salad being a little different everyday. In today’s addition, we have a quinoa salad filled with cubed and roasted sweet potatoes, crumbled goat cheese, caramelized red onions, fresh thyme, and a handful of mixed greens.

We mixed ours up with a simple anchovy vinaigrette, because we love the briny flavor, but you can use whatever vinaigrette or dressing you like; I also l like tossing everything together with a simple spicy mustard and white wine vinegar vinaigrette, for it’s tartness.

This is one of my favorite things to eat at the moment and I love how easy and suitable it is as an “on the go” type of meal. If you do take this meal to-go, wait until you’re ready to dig in to toss the vinaigrette into the salad, to keep everything light and fresh, and you have yourself a great school or work lunch or dinner! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

pumpkin_coconut_granola_bars coconut_pumpkin_granola_bars homemade_granola_bars Hi! Happy Sunday! Did you know our new book The Perfect Egg comes out this Tuesday? CRAZY. If you don’t know about it, take a look at this post, and then order it!!!! :)

Today we have a recipe for No Bake Pumpkin and Coconut Granola Bars. I think anything dredged in coconut is a favorite for me, because it looks so pretty no matter what. These granola bars are also pretty fantastic because you don’t have to bake them, and they taste so good with the pumpkin and coconut together. YES. Perfect for snacking, and even better for post work out pre work out situations. Have a good weekend you guys!

No Bake Pumpkin and Coconut Granola Bars
Makes 12 bars

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup tightly packed pitted dates
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup raw pepitas
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (or desiccated coconut), plus more for rolling/dredging
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:
1. Place dates, almonds and pepitas in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground.
2. Add remaining ingredients and continue to pulse until all ingredients are completely incorporated and mixture is almost completely smooth.
3. Press mixture evenly into an 8”x 8” baking dish, lined with parchment (the parchment should hang over the sides, so the granola bars are easy to lift out of the dish).
4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Lift the mixture out of the baking dish and cut mixture into even strips. Cut strips in half so you have 12 even bars (sized about 1.25”x 4”).
5. Carefully dredge each bar in the excess coconut and serve. Bars will keep in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
