Much to my excitement, the girls of Big Girls Small Kitchen released their first cookbook. Aside from their straight-forward-but-still-creative, healthy-but-still-delicious recipes, Phoebe and Cara are wonderful writers -- and they include tons of personal stories, like cute first dates with shy smiles and pancakes.

They've also been making videos in preparation for the book debut, showing how to do basic things in the kitchen like make a grilled cheese, plain or fancy. (I can't help but smile when I watch them, they are so adorable.)

Check out the book for this ginger cookie recipe and tons more, but for now refer to their blog post about the six best jar cookies (including double ginger snaps and coffee sables filled with chocolate ganache).

P.S. Their "sexy-ugly onion tart" makes me laugh every time.
