Podcast 2 – Eboni Booth

Podcast interview with my friend, actress Eboni Booth – plus a coffee cake recipe!

The Actor’s Diet Podcast #2 is up – and it’s a familiar face – actor, writer, and amazing cookie baker, Eboni Booth.

Eboni has been appearing on the blog a lot lately.   Sadly, after we record this episode we have our last meal together.  It is at Chipotle – which, ironically, gets mentioned in the interview. So glad I had the opportunity to sit down with her before she left for NYC so you could all hear what a cool cat she is.

As always, you can download the episode at iTunes – where it would be super helpful if you could subscribe/rate/write a review.

Here’s the Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe we discussed!

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

  3. Alternate the filling with the batter in pan.

    That podcast was fun to listen to–definitely makes the time at work go by much faster, so thank you! Yummm…that recipe sounds delicious! I think I will have to give it a try, or rather, ask my partner to make it for me since I’m baking-impaired lol I’m attempting to do a Project365 where I do 365 things I’ve never done before that I’ve always wanted to and I think making something like this would be great for my list 🙂

    I think podcast are so much fun. Thank you for sharing! The recipe sounds great although I totally suck at baking anything. I’d clearly find a way to eff this one up.
