Food on Thursdays: In case you wanted to buy me a cookbook

Because we all need such an advocate for butter and sugar in our lives.

La Tartine Gourmande
Because I could use a new perspective on small, simple meals. And I could dive into her photographs.

Because not only could I stand less flour in my life (shhhh, don't tell Joy the Baker), I love how they tell stories about food, especially pizza.

Because she knows how much work dinner can be, and how worth all that work is in the end. This book isn't even released until June 5, but I thought I'd give you some extra warning, you know, for planning purposes.

P.S. I've been loitering around the following recipes this week:

sunday minestrone (to help me with this problem)
potato, turnip, white bean and kale soup (I will make a good white bean soup one day)

No sweets this week? I'm not sure what's wrong with me. Savory it is, then.

What are you cooking this week? Any new cookbooks catching your eye?


  1. sister brought sweet potato and adzuki bean salad to the hospital appointment yesterday...I love whole foods but always go for the Lay's plain chips. Love looking at whole foods cookbooks too. My brain needs to have a talk with my body about what they both want and need to be healthy!

  2. The cookbook that consistently brings success and joy to our meals is Rebar. It is written by the owners of a restaurant in Victoria B.C.
    It isn't new, but wow, it is fantastic.

  3. I love, love, love the Rebar cookbook! I received it as a gift about seven years ago, and I swear by it. My favourite is the roasted vegetable pasta. And most everything.

    KGH, I know, right? I love whole, delicious food, but I don't always make it past the Lay's, either. Works in progress, right?
