Welcome!

To those of you stopping in by way of the Wall Street Journal, welcome! Mondays with Maida, which Lee Gomes referenced in his column today, is a project I finished last November. Here are links to the full archive for the project, the cookie panel's top ten, and nutrition data for the recipes. You can always find these links in my sidebar as well. I can't recommend the book highly enough - Maida is great and her recipes are delicious. The book I used (which I refer to as the "old book") is out of print, but still available through Jessica's Biscuit. Nearly all the recipes from the book were also reprinted in a later compilation (the "new book") which is still in print and available at Amazon. I'm partial to the old book for sentimental reasons and because of the charming drawings by Maida's daughter.

To my old friends... I was mentioned in the Wall Street Journal!! I still think there was some mistake :) The other bloggers mentioned in the article are tackling some truly challenging cookbooks including The French Laundry Cookbook and the Gourmet Cookbook. A weekly batch of cookies seems quite modest in comparison!

Congratulations on the mention, Cathy! Your "Mondays with Maida" project was really something to talk about!

You deserve it Cathy. Cookies or no, your efforts and determination made Mondays less "blue" when facing the start of the week! Auguri!

Cathy -- I can see I'm late to catch up with the news, but congratulations! As someone who has been a huge fan of Mondays with Maida since its inception, I can only say it's high time the press caught up with you!

Stephanie said...

Hi Cathy!!

Wow...I've been away for far too long; new design, Maida's all finished, an you're in the WSJ!

Congratulations! You know, you're the reason I started taking on big blocks of recipes from various cookbooks. I've yet to find one that screams 'follow me religiously!', but I'm still looking.

Hope all's well with you.
