Edible East Bay editor and layout designer Cheryl Angelina Koehler has been having a wildly good time creating e-books with her new friend/collaborator, photographer Judy Doherty. In the early days of the shelter in place, they found themselves bouncing off each other’s enthusiasm as they worked on the books with an aim toward drawing new followers to their various media channels. The results in new followers have been quite encouraging, but the process has brought its own rewards. One outcome was this new cupcake recipe, the idea for which Judy channeled from a children’s book called Warthogs in the Kitchen. She discusses the recipe in this feature about her work posted on May 28, 2020, in aPhotoEditor, an esteemed blog edited by Rob Haggart, the former director of photography for Men’s Journal and Outside Magazine.

Have a good time with the e-book, Pickle It, Quick!, and let us know if you make the cupcakes or have other ideas for making and using quick pickles.
