dinner a love story & super natural every day are newer cookbooks to our kitchen, but they are quickly becoming dog-eared, well loved favorites around here. i love the simplicity of the recipes, how wholesome the ingredients are & how beautiful the writing is. they also happen to be my favorite gifts right now -- for a friend's birthday, newlywed couple, new parents or an anniversary.
our favorite recipes from dinner a love story are the turkey chili (we often use beef & sub trader joe's bolognese for the can of tomatoes -- be sure to do the full 4 tbsp of chili powder -- it's the punch!); fish cakes; & pork loin with red cabbage (our favorite for dinner parties these days). from super natural every day, we've really loved the quinoa patties, oat cakes (oh.my.goodness.) & millet muffins.
the nicest thing is that i've come to trust these cooks -- i already know i love what happens in their kitchen, so when i try a new recipe, i do so knowing it's likely going to be a hit with us. what are your favorite cookbooks these days?
