I’ve already tried out a couple recipes from the Mile End Cookbook, and may tell it's going to be an obsession all wintry weather. I just spied brown butter snickerdoodles within the new Baked Components guide; I am lovely positive that should happen straight away. And I've been cooking out of the Sprouted Kitchen cookbook and everything has been contemporary, healthy and stunning.

Q. What's in your nightstand? Your Kindle?

I'm hooked.

Q. What's next for you?
