Virtual!

Hooray! Via zoom we launched  MY BEST FRIEND, SOMETIMES  on Sunday, May 24, 2020. I'll share a link to the video here as soon as it's ready!

 

(And keep scrolling down for a long list of independent bookstores where you can order the book.)

 

<<One day at lunch I sat next to Stephanie. "If you give me a cookie, I'll be your best friend."I gave her a cookie. It was chocolate chip.>>


If you'd like to bake your own book-themed refreshments, here are two versions of the chocolate chip cookies I am famous for:


Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mix until blended 1 cup olive oil, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup molasses. Mix in 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 cups whole wheat flour. Stir in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on a sheet pan, bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove immediately from the pan to cool on a rack. 

 

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free)
Mix until blended 1 cup olive oil, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup molasses. Mix in 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 4 cups almond flour Stir in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on a sheet pan, bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove immediately from the pan to cool on a rack.
