Here is my latest cartoon for King Arthur Flour’s magazine, The Baking Sheet. My mother was particularly happy with this one, bringing back the good old days of cookies and chaos. What can I say, I have very warm melty feelings about my childhood adventures in baking.

This month I was particularly inspired by the Baking Sheet assignment, so here are pages from my sketchbook that I made as I pondered home and hearth. Here is my conception (inspired by Charles Dana Gibson’s Gibson Girls) of an American baker at the turn of the 20th century. And how she managed to do so much while strapped down and tied up in the elaborate undergarments of the period, I will never know.

Now, here is my modern patron saint of baking- all she needs is a mix, her flip flops, and the joy of baking.

Just in time for the sweltering summer, the latest and possibly most delicious issue of King Arthur Flour’s The Baking Sheet. I am so tempted to lick the orange cream pie on the cover. Here is my latest cartoon, as featured in the magazine. It’s an ode to TV cooking shows. As a kid I watched re-runs of The French Chef and The Frugal Gourmet. Now, it’s Top Chef, Iron Chef, anything involving good food, ridiculous challenges, and a lot of knives and fire. ┬áBut through all the changes, making a mess is still my favorite part of cooking.
