Why we whisk away

Yeah, we're two sisters into all that local, organic happy crap. Guilty of farmers market trips, obsessive meal documentation, and worshipping Polan. Your run of the mill foodies.

But on the other hand, we avoid recipes with more than six steps or those that use duck fat (or equally indulgent items) as a policy. And why don't recipes take into account the standard packaging sizes? 14 ounces of chocolate chips? One cup plus one tablespoon? WTF!

Not to mention all that fancy gear often required by other cooks. Did you know that a wood rasp is actually better than a food grade microplaner? A mortar and pestle can process food just as good as an official Food Processor? (Though it can't hurt to lust after a pressure cooker, am I right?)

Expect homemade, healthy, simple, goodish for the community recipes here on Whisk Away. And low-carb and low-sugar dishes to accommodate a certain eater's lack of pancreatic function. And occasionally crazy experiments.

Believe it or not, cream can be whipped by hand (and it's low-carb!).
