Relish by Lucy Knisley [book review]

I just finished reading Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley. It's the first graphic book I have read and it was so fun! It was a Kitchen Reader book--it's a memoir by a girl who was raised by a mother who was a catering chef and a father who was a gourmand. I found that it started off a bit self-aggrandizing (there's some name dropping of her mother's friends/clients), but after a couple of chapters I was charmed by Knisley's childhood.

Grain-Free Microwave Cinnamon Breakfast Cake

Cake for breakfast! Glee came over my face when this thought went through my mind. This is a recipe with its roots as a mug cake, but I cooked it in a little oval-shaped ramekin. It's grain free since it's made with coconut flour. The "icing" on the cake is whipped cottage cheese--a clever idea that was inspired by Fit Girls Guide.

If you're not a banana and cinnamon fan, try my apple mini cake instead.

Tuna and Kidney Bean Patties

What to eat when the fridge is almost empty? I have discovered that these tuna and kidney bean patties can be made with pantry ingredients and one egg. You just need a can of tuna (or salmon) and a can of kidney beans (or chickpeas, or cannellini beans, or pinto beans). Mix them up!
