Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page. For more information, see the welcome post.
- Here's what I said about Crescent Dragonwagon's Bean by Bean: "I'm telling you, Bean by Bean is a book all of you can use. And because of the variations, one base recipe can often work for everyone, just by changing an ingredient or two." Recipe: CD's Beans & Greens Pasta with Lemon, Garlic, and Chile
- What did I say about the Cook's Illustrated Cookbook? "If you haven't drunk the Cook's Illustrated (CI) Kool-Aid yet, you should. I've been a faithful reader of the the magazine since its very beginnings and have rarely been disappointed in a recipe." Recipe: Simple Lasagna with Hearty Tomato-Meat Sauce
- From my review: "If you haven't heard of Jenny Rosenstrach's Dinner: A Love Story yet, you have now. And you'll be reading and talking about this book and Rosenstrach's blog for a long time to come." Recipe: Apricot-Mustard Baked Chicken
- Judith Fertig's "Heartland: The Cookbook takes you into the fields and barns and kitchens of the American Midwest. . . . The book will capture your imagination and your taste buds." Recipe: Bacon, Cheddar, and Scallion Scones
- Here's how I introduced my interview/review: "I've owned Katie Workman's The Mom 100 Cookbook for only a few weeks, but I've cooked out it so often, I'm not sure it's left the kitchen." Recipe: Mexican Tortilla Casserole (Don't miss this great author interview!)
Eric Asimov's How to Love Wine and Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont's The World Atlas of Beer get my nod for their staying power. Drink fads come and go, but wine and beer are eternal.
