checking in with the test kitchen

Recipe testing for Post Punk Kitchen books has been a mainstay in my kitchen during the past few years.  I learn new things, my palate expands, there’s always something to look forward to, and always an idea for dinner.

Most recently, I’ve been testing  for Isa’s upcoming Healthy/Weightloss cookbook.  How cool, right!?! I don’t know if there is an official title yet, but I will say that these lowfat meals are seriously wholesome, satisfying, and the ‘in progress’ name for the test kitchen is a great one…

  1. Every one of those recipes sounds (and looks) terrific!
    Isn’t testing fun? I’m doing it for Celine and Joni, and I’m really enjoying it. I should start taking pictures of the yummy stuff I make, though…

Don't be shy...have something to share?
