Hello! I pen the food blog http://5secondrule.typepad.com/ and have written two cookbooks. The first, called Ripe: A Fresh, Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables, came out in 2012. The second, called Yogurt Culture, will be published in 2015
I spend my days writing and making messes in the kitchen.
