Taking the day off!

If you’re reading this, then you already know: there’s no recipe for today!

Since my manuscript is due tomorrow, I’m taking the day off. Thank you so much for your support, as always and I can’t wait to bring you this cookbook next year.

In the meantime, I’d love your input on the next roll out of Inspiralized videos. Take a look at my Vimeo or YouTube page and let me know what types of specific videos you’d like to see (just comment on this post and answer the poll!)

See you tomorrow for a celebratory, fancy recipe!

Happy Monday, y’all!


  1. Carrots and or buternut squash.
  2. Ali, every one of your recipes I have made so far has been delicious! I'm so excited to have found your blog and have a resource for really tasty meals that are healthy and don't taste like they are good for you. Thank you! Congratulations on completing your cookbook manuscript. What a labor of love.
  3. Thanks so much for your blog. Yesterday we had spiralized turnips with our eggs and sausage for breakfast. Delicious. Definitely the healthiest part of my day.
  4. For step by step cooking videos I would want to see some of the very very basics for using the spiralizer the first time to recipes that are for large groups.
  5. It would be interesting to see the calories per serving for each of your recipes. Thanks!
  6. A well-deserved day off, indeed! :)
  7. I would love if you could add a feature that allows you to change the serving size, and then the recipe adapts to that number. Right now I'm cooking for 3 and I have to do math every time....not my forte :)
  8. Sorry...last comment was for the recipe blog and not the videos. I would love a video on the different ways to cook the veggies. Example: Pick a veggie and then cook it a few different ways and show how the veggie turns out with each method.
  9. While any recipe would be fun and interesting to watch you do on video, with your creative concoctions and "inspiralizing" personality, I would really enjoy seeing a video with you making one of your Asian inspired soups with zucchini noodles, such as some of your miso soups. The images of those make my tummy start grumbling every time I look at them!!! And definitely one of the recipes with plaintains! Dang it, or any stinkin' (figure of speech, as I am very indecisive) recipe you make because they are so so so so so so so deliscious and healthy! It's almost too tough to choose!!
  10. I'd love to see a video (with audio) of you actually cooking your recipes. I don't know if you aspire to this, but you'd be a great addition to The Food Network. With your unique and creative culinary talents, your passion for cooking, and your beautiful smile, you'd be a favorite among viewers for sure! You already have loads of fans!
  11. Sending good vibes to you and your cookbook.
  12. I have to say that since I found your blog I am obsessed with zucchini noodles. Interestingly, I tried regular Barilla spaghetti last night and I felt bloated and stuffed! Will not do that again! I didn't realize how much the zucchini noodles tasted just like spaghetti and how good you feel after eating them. I love your recipes, have tried several, tonight is the Garlic Zuccini with Chicken Sausages. Can't wait for the cookbook.
    • Laura - that's a truly Inspiralized comment! It's of course to indulge in pasta at restaurants and every once in a while, but what's the point during the normal week? Zucchini noodles are the BEST!
  13. Personally, I do not love videos. Please please please do not become a vlog! I love you just the way you are and talk about you to anyone who will listen. <3
