An Update

Hello and welcome back to Eve in the Kitchen!

As I’m writing this, school just ended a few hours ago. I’m so excited for the summer! (That’s why I’m planning to give away lots of fun prizes over the next few months, so stay tuned!)

I will be going to summer camp. Not just any summer camp! A culinary summer camp!

Now, you might be asking yourself why I’m telling you this–what does it matter what I do over the summer? I’ll tell you why! During this summer camp session, I’ll be going behind the scenes at many popular places–like Fairway (for those of you who don’t live in NY, that’s the greatest market in the world) and Stone Barns, a farm upstate!

I will be telling you lots of things I learn on those trips and how our food is handled–from the field to the grocery shelves! Keep reading Eve in the Kitchen to find out more!

And meanwhile–here’s a picture of some nice crisp lettice (romaine and buttercrunch) that I picked from my backyard garden. We’ll be eating a lot of salad this week!

An Unusual and Fun Cookbook

I just got a new cookbook. It’s called Desserts in a Jar by Shaina Olmanson. She blogs over at FoodForMyFamily.com.

Why jars? Because you can make individual desserts that look really cute and homey and taste great!

There are so many interesting recipes here, including kid-friendly things like peanut-butter-cup cupcakes, fruit desserts like apple pie and lemon merengue pie, and even frozen desserts. I can’t wait to try banana splits in a jar!

Shaina gives tips on how to choose your jars, decorate them for a nice presentation, bake safely in them, and much more! I think this book will get a lot of use at my house!
