I find her cookbooks very intimidating, but her food is delicious and Joanne Chang looks so darn nice that I can't stay away. My failed attempt at her Birthday Cake will always haunt me, but today's Vegan Vanilla-Mixed Berry Muffins were meant to be mine. I substituted chopped cherries for raspberries and they still turned out well.
I loved her chapter, In Our Pantry. She keeps no secrets.
