Jessica Merchant’s bacon, egg & avocado corn cakes


I’ve mentioned I’m a little obsessed with the breakfast recipes in Jessica Merchant’s awesome new cookbook, Seriously Delish, right? If I can put an egg on it, then I’m happy. Next up… Bacon, Egg and Avocado Corn Cakes. I managed to adapt this recipe to be gluten-free, which is really exciting for me. But honestly, there is a mistake in the recipe. And it’s my fault. I’m the editor after all.

Breakfast Risotto from Seriously Delish by Jessica Merchant

Breakfast Risotto

It’s my favorite time of year, when the new Fall cookbooks start coming out. But this is no ordinary cookbook. I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with Jessica Merchant of How Sweet It Is for the past couple of years, and I’ve been drooling over this one ever since I first met her and read her book proposal for Seriously Delish.

Note this drawing is now closed. I’ve been counting the days until April 29th for a while now.

behind the scenes with Ellie Krieger and a giveaway

Weeknight Wonders by Ellie Krieger

Note: This drawing is now closed. A lot of the work I do is solo. I sit at my desk typing emails, editing manuscripts, reviewing layouts, and more. It suits well my introverted side. The photo shoots I art direct are entirely different. On set things are sometimes loud, occasionally stressful, always very creative, and most of all, it’s a team effort. The photo shoot for Ellie Krieger’s amazing new book, Weeknight Wonders, was no exception. Continue reading
