I first tried falafel a couple years ago and was shocked I hadn't had it earlier. Patties that are not made with beef, but rather with chickpeas and herbs and spices!? What's not to love? The answer is nothing. Many falafels are fried, but mine were baked. Even better!

FYI - tomorrow my family goes on our one and only family vacation to Seabrook, New Hampshire! I will be bringing a computer, and doing some cooking, so I will still be updating - just perhaps not as often. Tonight I need to try to figure out exactly which of my beloved cooking tools I cannot live without for two weeks. This is difficult. I love my mixer, but it weighs about 73483295 pounds. I love my pastry board, but really, is a beach vacation the time and place to make bagels? My citrus zester? My awesome new Casey's Cupcakes apron? Ah, such difficult choices! If you were going to a desert island (or a beach house), which of your cooking supplies would you bring with you?
