i made a book!
a year and a half ago i made a list of all of my favorite foods, and then over the course of the following year i wrote down their recipes, got them camera-ready, and snap snap snapped. then i locked the doors, played sia the loudest she would go, and sat my bum at the table to extract all of the words from my belly/my heart/my brain. i wrote about my suburban childhood existence that was fueled by wonderbread and lunchables, my years at juilliard where xylophones and pizza ruled my life, the real (and smelly) story of eggboy and me, and my new life on the farm with jell-o salads and tater tots. writing it was terrifying because i wasn't sure if i'd find the right words in time for my deadline or whether or not my memory would fail me, but the obsessive documenter in me, who has kept my diary writing continuous from the day i could write, is proud and pleased with the thing and i cannot wait to show you!
a few of my favorite things in this book include: a pattern for making your own schnitzel halloween costume (drawn by the rockstar illustrator lisel jane ashlock), a sub chapter on macaroni and cheese including a macaroni and cheese flow chart, a dumpling party and a tractor top pizza party (captured by fargo's finest chantell ziegler) and recipes for brunch brisket, baloney lunchables, pimiento cheese babka, mozartkugeln, jerusalem bagel dogs, slider cakes, and a new and improved funfetti cake.
