I've just had notification that my pre-order has been released, so I'm now waiting impatiently for this to arrive (at least 10 business days from the UK).
My impatience is a) I've seen her blog and I think this is going to be a fun style of cookbook and b) I do believe Celine Steen did the photography so I'm hoping I'll at least get a book of pretty pictures to admire even if I don't use the book itself all that much.

I got this at Barnes and Noble today; it looks so awesome! So much creativity in here. I'll report back once I've made something.

I made the Whatsa Panzanella - minus the beets since I didn't have any, and cooked the black-eyed peas from dry - and it was yummy. I cannot wait to try that Breakfast Pizza!

I made the Falafel Waffles tonight for dinner. They turned out way crumbly and my waffle iron was an absolute nightmare to clean afterwards. That said, the waffles were delicious! I don't know if I'll ever do them in the waffle iron again, but they were darn tasty!

And yes, akasha, the Breakfast Pizza is on my soon-to-make list!

Oh my gosh! Once at an out of town cafe, they had on their menu a deink dubbed "The dirty hippy", chai latte with a shot of espresso. To date this has been my only awareness of this chai-esprsso combo.
I'm in love with the whole book, especially those pizzas, but soon as I saw those Bike Messenger Brownies I rushed out and bought silken tofu specially to try them. Soon as I read the description the memory of the drink popped into my head, it was good, but it's not something I've seen anywhere else to think of it.

It's called a Dirty Chai here. I first heard of it around 2 years ago when I moved back to Scotland, but it's not really well known so I'm not sure what would happen if you tried to ask for it by name in a cafe. I'm grateful to whoever told me about it, though, because it's good! I made dirty chai-inspired pancakes once (ground up leaves from a chai tea bag and instant espresso powder in the mixture) and they were pretty amazing!

Bike Messenger Brownies = win! They remind me of a super fudgy brownie I used to make pre-gan.

I made the Samoe Joe cupcakes the other day: http://instagram.com/p/dCobwHNKL3/
Next up I'm thinking the fried mac & cheese balls.

I think you guys got an early run because the publisher told me the book isn't finished yet? Hmmm

i wanted to to the fried mac & cheeze balls but i am afraid of frying in large batches of oil...

Made the German Chocolate Cookies, and oh my. They are ridiculously good. Love the combo of an oatmeal-ish cookie with cocoa, then throwing in pecans, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut just takes it over the top.

This is definitely a totally normal, standard order at a coffee shop. Any barista should know what a dirty chai is (at least in the States).

Here too. It's super common and a long way from the most obscure things I was ever asked to make.

I made the bike messenger brownies too and they were good! The glaze was awesome. Then for some reason I made the candy bar smoothie even though I suspected I wouldn't like it, and I didn't like it. Basically there were too many solids in it and not milkshakey enough.

My first thought was ... maybe it would make a better ice cream? Chunky bits are generally more acceptable in ice cream than smoothies. Is it very creamy?

Yeah, it would definitely make a better ice cream! The smoothie wasn't creamy enough.

I made the Banana Bread French Cupcakes tonight, the cakes were delicious! I had no maple extract for the frosting so it had to go alone with just the maple syrup, the frosting was alright. Very bland, so I added some vanilla essence, which just seemed to make the frosting more vanilla.
But still super delicious.

I just ordered this book - the previews on amazon were enticing enough. Banana Bread French Toast Cupcakes!! That sounds amazing.
