Also, did I mention that the cookbook is FINISHED?!? Clove-Minded: A Valentine Cookbook is only a month late, but there are about twenty folded and stapled completed copies in a bag at my feet right now. I think Kinkos screwed me over as I seem to be missing 4 1/2 copies, which is like $25 worth of cookbook that I just can't find and don't know what happened to. And no receipt, so I think I'm out of luck. But anyway... Letting it go. There are recipes for such things I've written about on here, like Creme Andalous, a creamy spanish soup, or basil-feta-pine nut muffins, or--for the adventurous--Habas verdes con queso (lima beans with cheese). There are also things I've never written about here, like tilapia with french cream sauce and sweet potato-ginger-cilantro patties. Good stuff. I have to admit, I've made a lot from this ever since I started making copies because looking through it was making me hungry.
Anyway, the point of this: If you want a copy I made a paypal link in the right sidebar; just send me an email at email@example.com with your address. (Or, you know, contact me at whichever of my far-too-numerous internet contact possibilities you care to use.) This includes people I don't know; I know from statcounter that there are a few of you out there, and this is a perfect time to 'fess up and introduce yourselves. Donations are accepted (it's costing me about $5 for copies and shipping per copy), as are trades, I suppose. I figure this is what credit cards are for (copying all of my favorite recipes and giving them to my friends, apparently), but the print run is turning out to be a bit larger than expected and I can't afford to make many more pro bono copies.
So let me know! I love you all, and I want to make sure everybody can make soy chorizo-potato pastries if they have the desire.
Oh, and thanks to Anna for the cookbook title. She's my resident font of puns :)
