    You are my personal hero. If you ever need somone to try out something new (in addition to Kevin that is), we are only two train stops away! And personally, i thought the mushroom caps were fabulous!

    1) This is great. I look forward to reading it.
    2) If you haven’t read the magazine (or it’s website), Cook’s Illustrated is fantastic. I actually don’t think the illustrated part is that fantastic, but they really explore cooking science as a means to fix your recipes. Great article last month in making flaky pie doughs everytime.
    3) This really makes me sound like a Los Angeles person, but…I haven’t read this book, but I read the script. It’s called Julie & Julia. It’s about a woman who decides she is going to cook every recipe in Julia Childs’ Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year (http://www.amazon.com/Julie-Julia-Recipes-Apartment-Kitchen/dp/031610969X). Really interesting, and it’s a true story about a woman’s blog that eventually gets published.
    4) Hey Kevin and Kristin – saw some wedding footage. You guys looked amazing. I’m glad to hear that Chicago is treating you well.

    I just wanted to let you know that I found your site very entertaining. It was your misadventure in pasta making post that finally got me moving in that culinary testing direction. Keep up the great work.

    I hope you don’t mind if I add the address to your blog into my blogroll :)

    Hey I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog and pictures. Thought maybe we could trade links :) My comments have been tossed around here so much, as if you couldn’t tell!!

  8. Amanda says on January 27 2008 at 11:30 pm:

    This morning I was searching for a recipe for “Parker house rolls” and “Google” sent me here…lol. I scrolled and scrolled and when saw your site name it punched my button. I think I have a groove where I stand at the sink like indention. To make a long story short…I LOVE YOUR STYLE, YOUR PHOTOS, YOUR WAY OF TELLING A COOKING STORY…thanks for brightening a foggy, rainy morning in Florida. I needed to start out the day on a bright note.
    Best of luck to you in your law studies and all you are dreaming to do and to be.

    hi. I love your website because it’s gorgeous and creative. Do you take your own photographs? They’re lovely. I am interested in any tips and suggestions you might have for photographing food. Thanks.

    I just recently discovered your blog and enjoy it very much! So far, I haven’t tried a recipe of yours yet, but the granola bars and anything with rhubarb are on my list …

    Greetings from Germany!

  14. Susannah says on May 13 2008 at 8:30 pm:

    I just discovered your blog and love it. Like you, I went to NU. Perhaps like you, I graduated not that long ago (about 4 years ago). Like you, I love to cook, eat and write, and I also write a food blog: http://amusesbouche.wordpress.com.
    How coincidental. Maybe I know who you are and I don’t even know it. :)

  15. Angela says on June 09 2008 at 11:12 pm:

    I tried your Meyer lemon cheesecake. It was delicious. The pizza’s next! Thank you.

    I read your blog every morning and have made a ton of your recipes. Your steak sandwhich was my blog post yesterday! I hope the Minneapolis farmers market catches up to Chicago’s soon… I want some cute little carrots like those. Good luck with the bar exam! I hope that your posting keeps up even when you are a busy lawyer.

  17. Whitney says on June 26 2008 at 9:29 am:

    Pretty picture :) Good luck studying for the bar. I have the joy of doing that next summer. I go to Kent so at least I am used to the building.

    Thanks for such a great blog!

  18. Kate says on July 08 2008 at 4:33 pm:

    I love your blog and your recipes look fantastic. I am going to try a couple out in my next free moment. Thanks!

    You might be interested in site. There are fantastic recipes from top LA chefs…straight from the chefs themselves.

    Thanks again!

    I just wanted to let you know that I have been oogling your blog for a while now and I really enjoy it and pretty much want to try and make EVERYTHING.

    I hope that it is ok if I add your link on my blog as well.

    Thank you and keep posting.

    Kristin, thank you for such a great site! I’ve been online all night looking for recipes to try and spent most of the night on your site. I feel at home here, it’s all so well-done, and very comfortable. Your pictures are so clear and inviting, I feel like I could reach out and taste the batter with my finger! Thank you for all you do…

    Ok, now I’m going to try your granola recipe!

    Happy Holidays from New Jersey,
