I may hate cooking, but my recipe was published anyway

PastaQueen recipe

My recipe for Capp-oat-ccino Delight aka Oatmeal Espresso was recently published in Dave Grotto’s new book, 101 Optimal Life Foods. Some of you may remember that I entered a recipe contest after the Quaker Oats Living Proof Blogger Weekend in Chicago. My win included the prize of an ill-fated unvacation to the Colorado Oatmeal festival as well as the publication of my recipe in Dave’s book.

Dave was kind enough to send me a copy of the book which I’ve flipped through. It’s a guide to what foods will help you manage or prevent various illnesses. I took special note of the chapters on headaches and chronic pain. It’s a handy little guide, and Dave Grotto is a registered dietician dietitian, so he knows what he’s talking about. Roni from Green Lite Bites has some recipes featured in the book too, so you can double the blogger love even if we don’t get any royalties :)

And to think I used to get funny looks when I did that at work!

Congratulations J! I’m not a coffee drinker so I’ll switch it out for black tea when I try the recipe.

Double the blogger love … too cute, from my two faves too, even better may even buy it!

Congrats! The recipe sounds interesting. I’m not much of a cook, either, but this doesn’t sound too difficult.

Love your blog. By the way, it’s spelled “dietitian,” not “dietician.” As an RD myself, it’s just a little pet peeve of mine!

This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
