I met Tina Haupert many moons ago at a Bertolli event in NYC. We were sitting at the same table and she was SUCH a pleasure. When I found out her URL was http://carrotsncake.com I almost fell on the floor. What an AWESOME NAME! We need a little of both in our life, right?
A few days ago I had the opportunity to check out her new cookbook (AHHHH) and I am so excited because not only is it a GREAT READ but it’s from a bloggy buddy who I simply adore.
‘Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time‘ is all about balance – which we all so desperately need! Yes, it’s perfectly fine to indulge in the yummy and decadent, but we need to be sure to have a few veggies on that menu as well. Some of my favorite recipes include:
- Stove Top Oatmeal with Wheat Berries
- Zucchini and Chickpea Salad
- Pumpkin Muffins
- Fresh Onion Dip
- Double Chocolate Tea Cakes
- Vanilla Cappuccino
- Almond Butter Stuffed French Toast
- Vanilla Mini Cupcakes
Besides having a NUMBER of doable and easy to follow recipes, Tina also offers up advice about fitness routines, food tips, and details on how to get ‘Cookie Friday’ started! Sign me up! 😉
