Those of you following along with the blog or the FSC Book Club know that we love Alana Chernila and her cookbook, The Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying & Start Making. So it should come as no surprise that we are absolutely thrilled to bring you a fascinating, in-depth interview with Alana during this show.

In this episode, we talk to Alana about her journey to becoming a blogger and cookbook author while holding other jobs and raising two daughters with her husband. She talks about the process of writing a book and all of the work that goes into making such a beautiful, useful kitchen guide.

Alana also talks about the role food plays in her life and how she hopes to empower others to get in their kitchens and start creating. We asked her about her unique memoir style of recipe-writing and the personal touches that define The Homemade Pantry. We hope hearing Alana’s insights will serve as a great reminder that no one is perfect. You don’t have to making everythingfrom scratch. We’re all just trying to do the best we can and take each day at a time. As Alana says, you need to be able to cheer yourself on during those tense kitchen moments.

A big thanks, of course, to Alana Chernila for taking the time to chat with us for this show. You can visit Alana’s blog, Eating From the Ground Up, to read more.
