Update for Men Cook Too Kickstarter Backers
We are getting closer to the completion of the layout process of Men Cook Too. I’d say we are about two weeks away from the final proof being completed and there will likely be another week on top of that for edits. Once edits are made, it’ll be another week and then the book will be published. As soon as the book is published, it should be less than another week to get the first-run stock of books and I will send out rewards for all the pledges made through Kickstarter. I have been working on the thank you notes and have been slowly piecing together all the rewards for my backers. Those who are set to receive e-book copies will have to wait probably around another week to get their files for them to be transferred into the proper format.
I’m getting excited about the finish and hope everyone enjoys their book.
Spinach, Feta and Quinoa Cakes Recipe
Servings: 8 Cakes
2 cups Water
1 cup Uncooked Quinoa
1 cup Spinach, chopped
1/3 cup Olives, diced
1/3 cup Feta Cheese
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 tsp dried Parsley
In medium-sized sauce pan, add water and quinoa. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes. The quinoa should absorb most of the water in that time. While quinoa is cooking, mix spinach, feta cheese, olives, eggs and bread crumbs in large bowl. When quinoa is finished cooking, add to bowl and mix together with other ingredients. Add salt, pepper and parsley roll mixture into patties. I make them about the size of a hamburger, but you can adjust them to be smaller or larger depending on what you’re craving.
In a large frying pan, add oil and set heat to medium. Place patties on pan and cook for eight minutes or until brown. Flip and cook for additional eight minutes. Serve with a side spinach salad with olives and feta cheese, with a glass of red wine.
One quick note before I go. I partnered with Elyssa at The Wellness Doer to offer a giveaway to her readers. For those that have already pledged to receive a copy of Men Cook Too, this is your chance to get another copy to give as a gift. The contest is open to residents of the United States and offers those that have something to advertise online a chance to also win ad space on two websites.

Also, while you’re there, you will have the chance to check out a recipe from Men Cook Too for Chicken Meatloaf.
