What a whirlwind week! I spent the last six days in North Carolina working for Lisa on her upcoming cookbook (due to be released by Harper Collins, January 2014). Lisa hired me to shoot the food photography (pinch me!) and Kelly – a long-time friend – is shooting the lifestyle shots. My girls traveled with me and had a blast playing with Lisa’s daughters while we worked like mad for a week.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes Instagram pics:
We spent a few evenings in the backyard by the fire, Vani stopped by a couple times to check in, and we even found a bit of time for some zip-lining. I’m thrilled to contribute to Lisa’s book and will update you on the progress as time gets closer.
I posted a whole wheat recipe for this apple cake a couple of years ago and now I’ve adapted it so it doesn’t include grains. Almond flour, coconut flour, apples, coconut, butter, and spices all come together for one dynamite cake. The cake is extremely rich, and should serve at least sixteen.
