Here’s a fantastic total foodie book for when you want to knock it out of the kitchen! My review with my pics and thoughts on the dishes I tried is below. Here’s a link to the recipe for Kristen’s Dead-of-Winter Vegetable Rosti with Saffron Aioli so you can taste the book. I just noticed that all of the measurements are twice as big in the book and fit my 12″ skillet perfectly. There are four of us and my youngest wanted a second piece. If you have anyone who likes extra when delicious and healthy collide, you might want to double this. And someone will have a lovely lunch the next day.
Looking for a little healthy vegetarian fare to balance out the upcoming holidays? A Beautiful Mess Weekday Weekend: How to live a healthy veggie life . . . and still eat treats is delicious, nutrition-packed, easy, pretty, and it’s in the category I lovingly refer to as butt-reducers.
A big thanks to Chronicle Books for letting me share the recipe for Zoodle and Noodles Teriyaki Stir Fry with you so that you can taste the book. Yum!

Cooking with Deb Perelman’s book, Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites, is like having a funny friend hanging out in the kitchen with you. The food is terrific and just as unfussy as the title promises. I just made her Chocolate Pecan (and bourbon!) Slab Pie and it’s delicious! A huge thanks to Knopf for giving me permission to share the recipe so that you can taste the book! And just in time for Thanksgiving!
My review of the book with my pics and thoughts of the dishes I tried is right below the recipe.
It’s starting to cool down a bit outside. Fall is the perfect smoking weather. The Complete Electric Smoker Cookbook is great for when you’d rather be out throwing a frisbee or bonding with your lawn chair in the sunshine than playing in the kitchen. It’s an easy, yummy book that will get you out in that yard. It’s called an electric smoker cookbook, but the recipes work perfectly in my kamado-style grill with a heat deflector plate, too. Any tweaks I made to the recipes are noted in the review below. Read More
Texas is pretty awesome. We get maybe 5 days of snow a year. Just enough to be ridiculous. When it does, kids get sent out in redneck sleds (laundry baskets). I saw an excited dad hand his beer off to his friend, and then he took his kayak down a snowy hill. And we have smoked brisket, queso, kolache, and Mediterranean geckos. It’s a good place. About that queso…. Lisa Fain, author of Homesick Texan and Homesick Texan Family Table, just put out a book of nothing but queso, and it’s fantastic!
Here’s the recipe for her Spinach Queso Blanco, so that you can taste the book. A big thanks to Lisa Fain for letting me share it with you!
