I wanted to renew the book, but it was reserved by someone else so I had to return it. I finally bought the book a few weeks ago and decided to cook my way through the cookbook and post pictures online. This cookbook is fantastic, but there are no pictures and I'm a fan of picture cookbooks. So, this will serve two purposes: 1. Pictures to go along with the recipes (for me for the future) and anyone else that may be interested in the cookbook and 2. To encourage me to actually try things that might not sound so great just reading over them.
*Edit* I just found Cathe Olson's blog where she shares pictures and some of the recipes from this cookbook along with other recipes. If you are looking for good vegetarian or healthy recipes, check out her blog.
Don't expect fancy pictures. I'm a mother of 2, homeschooling one and babysitting another until 6 in the evening, so by the time I get dinner on the table everyone is ready to dig in and there is little time (or patience) for me to take pictures. These are just snap shots.
So, I've made two meals from the cookbook so far. Both were main dish recipes and then I made dessert to go along with it. Guess how many pictures I have of the four dishes I've made so far? One. Yup, that's right. I only remembered to take pictures of the main dish of one of the meals I made. So, these posts may be few and far between, but I will cook through the book, it just might take 5 years to get pictures of everything :)
I know, the suspense is just building :) ha! Here is the first dinner I made out of this book.
