Trying to find your easy berry cake recipe that was posted on Coastal Living! Would love to make it for this weekend!! Thx!!


I have been visiting your website for several years now and wanted to take a moment to say, “Thank you!”
You are my go-to source for everything from planning a nice holiday meal to throwing together a last-minute dinner on a busy, sports-filled weeknight. Your love of cooking is palpable and your ability to demonstrate how sharing a family meal that all can enjoy is a godsend. You have inspired this previously disinterested “chef” in so many ways. Thank you for transforming cooking from an onerous daily task to an enjoyable part of my day. Thank you again!

The Weekday Vegetarian recipe Spicy Cauliflower Fritters were delicious but fell apart while frying. I used 6 1/2 cups of frozen riced cauliflower completely defrosted and dried and followed recipe exactly. What did I do wrong? What do you recommend I do differently? Thanks for help! This is the first time I’ve had a problem with your recipes.
