Hi Katerina,

Thanks for looking at my blog this am. I like your blog too. I see that your heading to cooking school. Thats great. What school are your going to attend? I will sign up on your blog too and maybe we can share some recipes.

Hi Katherina,

I am a final year dietetics student developing a resource for university students promoting healthy eating in South Australia. I’m just wondering if I can ask for permission to use one of your photos in your post about meatballs on 9th June 2010? If it is alright, I will credit your blog in my references page. Thank you very much!

Elysia :)

Just got the most beautiful fava beans at the farmer’s market yesterday here in Hollywood….don’t have A CLUE what to do with them.

Any suggestions? I couldn’t find any recipes on your site.

Hi there,

I love your recipes and have your blog in my feedreader. But what is really really annoying is the subscribe by email pop up that opens when one goes on the site. this is especially inconvenient when I want to open the recipe on my phone, to use in the kitchen, and I can’t close the damn pop-up to get to the recipe. Maybe you want to reconsider the use of that hideous thing ;)

otherwise, lovely :)
cheers, andie

Andie – I get your feedback, but I actually have a ton of readers return using this technique which ultimately give me more feedback on my site. Do you have cookies turned on with your browser? I know with my iphone I still only see it once which is the intention… What kind of phone are you using? Maybe I can find a way to turn it off for mobile browsers which don’t support cookies?

Patty – I emailed you :)

What a beautiful site full of stunning, simple recipes. I have just moved to Vancouver from New Zealand. Love coming across local bloggers with a similar taste to myself. Will keep on eye on this site :)

Thanks Christina and welcome to Vancouver!

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful site and for the broiled sweet potato recipe (I am totally addicted).

Have a wonderful day!

You are so right about the Yorkshire puddings- never enough to go around. I learned to make them in England, and the fat they use there is beef fat: usually packaged suet, but any beef fat will do. My favorite technique in the US is to simply trim some of the fat off the beef roast (generally a standing rib roast) and chop it roughly into bite size pieces. Put a piece in the bottom of each muffin cup and let it melt while the muffin tin is getting good and hot. Pour the batter into the sizzling hot melted fat, and your puds will be even more irresistible.

Hello Katerina,
I made your ginger, pear, walnut scones last night as a make-up present for a friend. They were sensational and I think they would fix anything:)
One big cooking ah-ha I’ve had is that anything that would be good with ground ginger will be an order of magnitude better with fresh. I grated a 1″ chunk into the buttermilk to sit while I prepared the rest of it. So good.
