Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Sorry for the little blogging holiday. It started with getting sick, but then after a series of snowstorms I just really enjoyed hanging out and playing with my family. It was fun not being able to drive, hunkering down in front of a fire, pulling out dusty board games and just really enjoying the relaxed pace.

You can rest assured though that I'm back. Fortunately during the snow storms I also had lots of quality time in the kitchen, which means fun new recipes coming up on Everyday Dish, not to mention a new addition to our site. I also spent some time working on upcoming magazine articles, and another top secret project (which I will spill the beans about soon). So, it seems that maybe I didn't relax quite as much as I thought I did. Funny how that happens.

Oh, and before I forget, there's a new recipe up on Everyday Dish for Rustic White Beans. It's one of my favorite recipes, and a deliciously healthy start to the new year. Try it, and let me know what you think. Don't worry if you don't have a pressure cooker, you can cook the beans in a pot on the stove, it will just take a bit longer to cook.

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday season!

Happy cooking!

Hi Julie,
Happy New Year to you and your family.
Julie, I just tried out your "best oatmeal cookies" and I had problems! The recipe on your site calls for replacement for 1 egg tho in your video you say 2. I used 2 "real" eggs. I used the 2 sticks of margarine, 3 1/2c. of flour, 2 1/4c. of packed br. sugar, 3c. of oats, 2c. of chips....The problem is that these quantities made a dough that was extremely crumbly and could hardly hold the shape of the mini scoop that I used. I had to really push the dough together for each scoop. What did I do wrong? Are the quantities correct? It looked like there was not enuf liquid. This recipe with my mini scoop yielded around 40 cookies. Pls, pls help!
Many thanks,
