Quickly, her dreams changed and all she could think about was what to cook next. Heather has cooked professionally for Lucques and Lucques Catering and writes The Dish Hack column for Los Angeles Magazine.

    Anna and Heather, Three More Big Bites is fantastic. I am not a cook…but I love to eat….and your recipes, pictures and……loving descriptions of home are great. Keep up the good work.!!


    • Hello,

      My name is Nora Landis-Shack and I work for Bon Appétit Magazine. We’re currently compiling a “Best-Of” feature for chickpea salad recipes and we would love to use an image from your blog of your Easy Mediterranean Chickpea Salad (featured on Cookingwithmykid). Could we have access and permission for your best high-resolution picture at 646 pixels? If we’re permitted, whom should we credit the photographs to?

      Thank you so much and I’m looking forward to hearing back from you soon!
