Perhaps it is the cooling weather or all the togetherness from hurricane Sandy (sending good wishes to our family and friends in NY and NJ), but whatever the reason, this modern mother has been on a cooking spree of late. It may also be thanks to these new books enthusiastically recommended by friends.
The first, Dinner a Love Story is a memoir, a primer, a how-to and choc-a-bloc full of great time/life saving ideas.
Just when the modern mother had decided to avoid the below book, mostly because she did not think she could possibly stomach another book about how le French are better at food/child related anything, her friend called to tell her how French Kids Eat Everything, has changed their dinner life. How can one not recommend a life changing book?
Finally Deb Perelman, over at our beloved Smitten Kitchen, has just come out with her book, titled, appropriately, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. I haven't read it but, Christmas is coming...
Enjoy the weekend and if you can find the time, happy cooking.
