Author Notes

This week, because of a certain Wildcard Win (see Leek, Lemon, and Feta Quiche recipe), I received in the mail a box of Oxo kitchen tools. They're a beautiful spring green color, very cheerful, and of course I have set straight to work with them. The first product? Well, with my handy balloon whisk, I've whipped up a healthy serving of gratitude. This "recipe" is my way of saying a public Thank You to Amanda and Merrill for not only selecting my recipe for inclusion in the first Food52 cookbook, but for creating such a vibrant, engaging, creative space for home cooks and bakers to share their kitchen creations, advice, and passion. It is indeed the community that means the most here. The Oxo tools ice the cake. —Allison Cay Parker

What You'll Need
  • 2 culinary superwomen (Amanda & Merrill)
  • 1 great idea (but more where that came from)
  • 1 heavy dose of hard work behind the scenes of Food52
  • 52 contests
  • 1 cookbook
  • I-don't-know-how-many inspiring members of the Food52 community
  • 1 Wildcard Win for Feeding the Saints
  • 1 generous sponsor of prizes (Oxo)
  1. Strap on an apron. Combine all ingredients. Blend until you feel a happy feeling buzzing in your body. That feeling? That's the slice of gratitude. Serve it with whipped cream. Everything tastes better with whipped cream.
  2. Thank you, Amanda & Merrill. Again and again.

When I first saw this on my iphone I thought, "Oh, look, Allison made something with a green vegetable medley." I'll have a slice, please.
Allison C. March 11, 2010
OK, it's true, there aren't many green veggies in the recipes I post. I do eat them, I swear. Lots.

Love your recipe! Love Amanda and Merrill! Note to self: must get OXO mitts.

Thanks for the comments so far, everyone. I know the sentiments are shared. Happily, there are enough slices of the gratitude pie to go around. Thanks are also in order for all the other cooks and bakers who inspire me here each week. I promise you, your efforts consistently raise the bar for my own.

Best. Recipe. Ever. (And I looooove my new Oxo mitts. The magnets for hanging them are brilliant.)
