Why don’t you put nutrition information about the recipes? I like your stuff, but am diabetic, and need to know sugar, and CALORIES!!
Hi, Carrie! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one .
I’m a big fan Emma. Mission accomplished. Your recipes, tips and insights really do make baking / cooking interesting and a lot of fun. What a gift, facility for words. In my humble opinion Emma you set the standard. Thank you!
Emma, Belated welcome! Any help to get more awesome recipes and ideas would be great and make my life easier! This is my go-to dinner-making site so am so excited about you coming on board!
Thanks for the welcome!!!
the two sites I visit are the Kitchn and Simply Recipes, so this is simply wonderful!
Awww, thanks, Julie!
You taught me to make sourdough, Emma! I make your “Tartine” recipe every 7-10 days. I like to bake from an overnight rise and I’m getting a wonderful crusty loaf with exactly the light and airy crumb that I like.
So happy to see you at Simply Recipes!
That’s so great that you’ve been making the Tartine loaves! :)
Welcome Emma! Looking forward to hearing from you in the New Year! This is my absolute ‘go to site’ for ‘what to eat?’ It has so improved my eating and food shopping habits. The RECIPES! Oh my! So easy to find just what works for me and my guests. I cannot thank Elise enough for all she has done to keep me on the right track! The FABULOUS PHOTOS alone are a treasure. The recipe intros and instructions always inspiring! I look forward to the New Year at Simply Recipes knowing it is in good hands!
Awww, that’s so great to hear! I’m really happy to be here. Thank you for the warm welcome!
Congratulations and welcome!!
Thanks, Maura! :D
Hi, I am new to your site and as others I welcome you Emma. I am not a very good cook. Same thing all of the time. I hope to find a recipe from you that I may like. I have to confess, I am from and live in south Louisiana so I don’t cook healthy. Both of you look great so there is little doubt that you will turn out anything but good food. The best of luck to you and may you enjoy many good meals as well. Oh, and anyone who makes beer has to be a super good person. No need for a reply. God Bless.
Thanks for the welcome, Doc! I hope we can set you up with some good recipes and meals in the coming months!
Welcome Emma! I can’t believe that you live in San Jose of all places. Which part? Maybe we are neighbors! I live between Willow Glen and Cambrian areas.
Thanks for the welcome, Magda! I make it to the Willow Glen farmers market every so often — maybe I’ll see you there!
As I live near Elise, I can actually say, “A warm welcome to the neighborhood!” If Elise has enlisted you, then you are surely going to keep Simply Recipes at its traditional high level in the blogosphere. Happy cooking and happy writing!
So glad you’ll be a part of this wonderful site! I am looking forward to your posts, will you give us a lesson on cooking with wild rice I love I just haven’t cooked with it. Thank you and welcome
Wild rice! As a true Minnesotan, I love wild rice! I’ll add it to my list. Thanks for the welcome (and the idea)!
Congratulations, Emma from a fellow Minnesotan!
Grew up with plenty of casseroles, aka “hot dish.”
Still love it today! You’ll have to do a post on tater tot hot dish!
Thanks, Linda! Mmmm, tater tot hot dish… now I’m hungry.
I’m intrigued by your brewing cookbooks. Will there be a way to pre-order the cider one coming this year? I hope it’s out in time for the fall harvest!
Looking forward to learning from you and Elise! Dynamic duo!
Thanks, Sarah! Yes, the cider book is called Modern Cider and it will be out August 2017! Here’s the pre-order Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2iIPSuF :)
Thanks so much!
Welcome to Simply Recipes, Emma! I can already tell you are a great fit for Elise’s site. I’ve found some interesting recipes on The Kitchn in the past. It’s lovely that you will be contributing here and giving Elise a bit of a break. Looking forward to some awesome collaborations from the team! :-)
Thanks, Judy! :D
Great to have you here Emma. SimplyRecipes and the Kitchn have been a constant presence in my kitchen for years, since I really do hate cooking and I am missing the Chef gene, being able to print any recipe knowing it is going to turn out just fine has been a source of relief and actual joy, xoxo
Ha ha! Happy to help, and thanks for the welcome!
Wonderful! I am a subscriber to Kitchn and watched a number of your videos there, Emma. Loved them.
Awww, thanks, Jane!
I have loved Elise’s website for many years! So glad you are on board. Please do show us how to make homemade yeast, videos would be great too! I just finished reading Sam Fromartz’s In Search of the Perfect Loaf, and would like to try making homemade sourdough bread soon!
I love that book! Hopefully we can get you some good bread recipes soon. :)
Welcome, Emma. “Simply Recipes” is my favorite foodsite. It never fails me. And this old English teacher can’t wait to hear more from somene so eloquent as to say “Yeast is a fickle friend.” Good things brewing!!!
Thanks, Janet! I hope to continue to entertain with lyrical turns of tongue. ;-)
Emma Christensen sounds like a Scandinavian name. Your heritage perhaps? If so, will there be any recipes from Scandinavia? If not, welcome!
Hi, Paul! Yes, my family has Danish roots! I may try to sneak a few Scandinavian recipes in here (lefse: yes, lutefisk: mmm…probably not).
Good stuff! My folks were from Denmark too. One recipe that we often use is Frikadeller.
Oooooh! I’ll look it up! I just love trying to pronounce all the words…
Welcome. I’ve cooked many recipes from this site and always with satisfying results.
Will the recipes have a “tag name,” below the photo to show who contributed?
Will you be adding anything new to the site like nutritional info for each dish or reviewing cookbooks, kitchen utensils, etc. Or techniques, like sous vide? Work, more work….
Congratulations on your new venture.
Thanks, Suzanne! The author is always attributed within the post itself (just below the title), but on the homepage, currently only the first post on the homepage shows the author (though this will likely be changing — stay tuned!). No plans to add nutritional info quite yet, since that requires some surprisingly complicated tech support, but you will definitely be seeing some new techniques and new kinds of posts coming down the pipeline!
