Too Many Cooks: Behind the Scenes

April 27, 2012

You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.

We're sharing some of the best discoveries from our food lives. This week: We go from farmers' market to Finals Week to Hawaii -- a busy week for us FOOD52ers.

Kristen shot some Godzilla-esque shots of her big, bad kitchen equipment -- a cherry red Kitchenaid and flame orange Le Creuset stockpot -- towering over her teeny-tiny apartment.

"This isn't so much pretty as ridiculous. My brother-in-law climbed a coconut tree, cut this down, cracked a hole in it, and started drinking the coconut water. He doesn't get out much."
- Stephanie (who's vacationing in Hawaii -- check out that root beer float and that cute baby.)

"A trip to the farm stand in Long Island."
- Jennifer

"This week's haul at the market -- plus, pea tendrils!!"
- Kristy

"I came down with a cold this week but was prepared with these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that I'd made and had ready to bake in the freezer."
- Nozlee

"Purple scallions and garlic scapes!"
- Christina

"When one studies for a geology final, one needs smiley-faced chocolate."
- Brette (who's finishing up her finals at UPenn this week)
