Just a few members of the knee-high club of CFO
Just a friendly reminder to submit your recipes for the CFO Cookbook, which I first wrote about a few weeks ago. So far I’ve received a lot of excitement about the project but very few actual recipes. Tonight I’m posting a recipe for chocolate chia seed pudding to get the ball rolling and to inspire some of you to send me your kitchen creations! Remember, this doesn’t have to be your own recipe. I collected this one at the grand opening of a culinary/nutrition school in Berkeley.
