Cookbook Challenge: “The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook”

It’s not very often that I get novelty cookbooks, or that I expect anything amazing to come from them, but this recipe was the exception. I was gifted this book for Christmas one year and I have only made one recipe from it prior to […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Steam Cuisine” Part 2

Cookbook Challenge: “Steam Cuisine” Part 2

Recipe number two from the Steam Cuisine cookbook by Marina Filipelli was one of the most simple, yet easy, dinners I have ever put together. My choice for this was the Tofu with Spring Onions, Ginger and Ponzu Sauce. The sauce for the tofu is […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Steam Cuisine”

Cookbook Challenge: “Steam Cuisine”

This book came from the same school book fair that my tapas cookbook came from. I remember being so excited when I found it, because I had recently been gifted a bamboo steamer and wasn’t sure where to start. When I use this cookbook, I […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America” Part 3

Cookbook Challenge: “Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America” Part 3

My third recipe was chosen because I had just about everything on hand and it looked easy. It is called the Moorish-style Chickpea and Spinach Stew (or garbanzo con espinacas). Some changes I made to the recipe were to swap the spinach for kale from […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America” Part 2

My second choice for a recipe from this tapas cookbook was the Chicken and Mushroom Paella (or paella de pollo y setas). I love saffron so much that I purposely picked a second recipe which called for it, but that’s not terribly hard to do […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America”

This is a cookbook that I’ve had for quite a long time, but felt a little intimidated to fully dive in. I tried one recipe from it before and used the wrong sausage and it ruined the whole recipe. It seems hard to screw up […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Vedge” Part 2

Cookbook Challenge: “Vedge” Part 2

Lucky for me I have been good about selecting recipes at random for this project, as they have, for the most part, turned out quite well. The second recipe from the cookbook Vedge was as equally amazing as the first. I selected the Oyster Mushroom […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Vedge”

Cookbook Challenge: “Vedge”

This next cookbook, “Vedge”, was selected based upon what type of ingredients I had on hand, as I was stuck at home for several rainy days in a row and didn’t want to venture out. I picked this book up at the thrift store in […]

Cookbook Challenge: “Russian Food & Cooking” Part 3

For recipe #3 of my cookbook challenge, I chose Baked Cheesecake (or Zapekanka iz Tvoroga), because I wanted to do a dessert that I was semi-familiar with, and I just happen to really love cheesecake. I’m kicking myself for not trying something new because the […]

The Cookbook Challenge

In an effort to simplify my life, I am attempting to declutter my house by 20-30% before the first day of Spring, or the Equinox. This year it falls on March 20th, so I have almost three full weeks to make it happen. I know […]
