IN THE KITCHEN

I have a new obsession. We’ve been cooking together as a family from a new favorite cookbook, and now that I know the beauty and magic of following a recipe from a tangible book, I want more, more, more! This particular cookbook is based on one of the big kid’s favorite novel series, Redwall (which in turn makes them willing and happy to try eclectic dishes such as Otter’s Hot Root Soup and Turnip’nTaterBeetroot Pie). We’ve been making all kinds of odd recipes that we would have otherwise blanched at, and we have all loved every single one. Look at us! Amberly made these scones for breakfast, Michael makes a modified beef and cabbage stew that’s mouthwatering, and I cook with rutabaga and parsnips? Who are we??

A lovely blog I’ve been frequenting, Say! Little Hen, has just featured “3 Cookbooks Worth Owning” that I’ve added to my wishlist. Do you have any other favorites to recommend?

  1. That book sounds like a great way to get children not only interested in cooking but to try new things too. I remember being more interested in food as a child if it had an unusual name :-)
    I’m glad you’ve discovered the world of cookbooks – I prefer cooking from a book although I do use my fair share of internet recipes too.
