Los Angeles-based writer coffeefoodwritergirl's recipes reveal her many dimensions as a cook. She embraces everything from the raw and vegan (like her Organic Raw Cranberry Sauce and Vegetarian Spring Rolls) to her unabashedly decadent home alone dinner (Tarragon Seared Duck Breast; Potatoes Sauteed in Duck Fat; Roasted Asparagus with Shaved Pecorino & Baby Chocolate Souffle). Perhaps most impressive is how comfortable she is working with less traditional parts of all kinds of different animals –- from veal tongue to duck gizzards to lamb sweetbreads to tripe.
