There’s always some sort of leafy green in my freezer—usually spinach. I love the convenience, especially when I get home from work and realize that my fridge has zero fresh vegetables. I’ll swap in thawed spinach and pretend it’s fresh, and whatever recipe I’m following never knows the difference.
Or does it?

Think: stir-frying noodles on the fly, baking dozens of pastries at 3 a.m., and writing about the history of pie in North Carolina. Now she lives in New Jersey with her husband and their cat, Butter. Stay tuned every Tuesday for Emma's award-winning column, Big Little Recipes (also the cookbook in October 2021!). And see what she's up to on Instagram at @emmalaperruque.
