Behind the Blog: Eggs on Sunday

While we're taking a break from our regular podcast, we thought we'd introduce you to some of the other food bloggers who have recently added their unique points of view to the local food community. We'll be talking with three of these bloggers in these special episodes, each featuring a chat with someone we've come to know within the past year.

For this episode, we're talking with Amy Maltzan of the Eggs On Sunday cooking blog. Each of her posts features a great recipe and her personal tips on why you should make it and how, along with some gorgeous photos of the results. She's passionate about cooking with local, seasonal ingredients, and not afraid to share her cooking and baking struggles as well as her triumphs. It was an enlightening conversation that we hope will inspire you to check out her blog and get cooking!

We'll have another episode in this special "Behind the Blog" series in a couple weeks, as well as some other special material here on our website. For continuing updates on everything we're doing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and on Facebook.

Thanks for a good blog recommendation. One problem: these are not "Amy's" World Peace Cookies -- they are Dorie Greenspan's cookies. I was glad to see the blogger properly attributed the recipe -- but so should you! Dorie Greenspan is known for her generosity with her recipes and tips -- but she deserves that respect of attribution.


Thanks for the comment, Michele. We've clarified the post to avoid any confusion. We are also big fans of Dorie Greenspan's books and blog, but World Peace Cookies aren't actually her recipe either. They were published in her cookbook, but Dorie attributes the recipe to Pierre Herme, who created them for the Korova restaurant in 2000, hence their original name Korova Cookies.

It just goes to show why they say recipes can't be copyrighted, as each person brings their own little touch to make it their own. We included links to these recipes on Amy's blog because these were the cookies (and scones) she had made for us to enjoy during our chat, and when she posts a recipe she also shares what those recipes mean to her.

Thanks for the comment, and for getting in touch. We hope you enjoy listening to the podcast!
