Anyone who really knows me knows that I am a cookbook collector. I confess I have a cookbook problem. The first section I head to when I go to a bookstore is the cookbooks. Step one: Admit you have a problem.
Hi! I'm Rebecca and I'm a cookbook addict!
How it works:
- Get the current cookbook. Feel free to look at your local library first. If you want to purchase the book simply click the photo of the book which will take you directly to Amazon. (also feel free to go ahead and try previous book club books!)
- Decide on at least one recipe you want to prepare and add it in the comments below. Feel free to create and share photos of as many recipes as you like! The goal is to explore the cookbook.
- Get in the kitchen with your family, friends or by yourself and cook away!
- Share your work with the rest of us by either submitting your photo to me via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (and I will add them to this page), joining the TOM Cookbook Club on Facebook or by simply sharing on any social media with the hashtag #TOMcookbookclub
- Optional, share in the comments below what you thought about the cookbooks, any recipes you tried in the comments of this post!
If you're wondering what I usually make for breakfast, I buy the Paleo Breakfast Plan on eMeals <—-click here to try for free.
The current book is:
It's June, which means that many of us will have a little extra time since school is out and things are a little more laid back in the summer. It also means that we might enjoy spending some additional time making some comfort food to enjoy with the people we love most in the world. That is why I have chosen Jamie Oliver's Comfort Food! This book is HUGE and packed with tantalizing recipes! Just the photos alone had me drooling.
The recipes I intend to start out with (because I know I'll be using this cookbook a lot!) are:
- Shepherds Pie p. 24
- Tear ‘N' Share Garlic Bread p. 290
- Hummingbird Cake p. 358 (for Father's Day)
- Insanity Burger p. 94
Definitely my favorite recipe so far:
an avocado a day by Lara Ferroni
I plan to make the following recipes from this book:
- Twice Baked Avocado p. 148
- Green curry paste p. 131
- Cado-Ritas p. 172
- Avocado & Cream Paletas p.160
- Sipping Chocolate
This sipping chocolate does not taste like it has an avocado in it! If you are old enough to have experienced Starbucks Chantico (about a decade ago) then you will be able to identify with this drink. There are not enough adjectives in the world to describe the chocolateness of this healthy drink!
the Sprouted Kitchen Bowl + Spoon, Simple and inspired whole foods recipes to savor and share
The recipes I plan to share from this book are:
- Baby Potato and Asparagus Tangle with Green Harissa and Eggs p.10
- Hippie Bowl p.116-117
- Tahini Citrus Miso Dressing p.203
- Curried Sweet Potato Soup with Crispy Black Lentils p.112
Our first book (January 2017) was
Clean Cooking: More than 100 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Sugar-Free Recipes
I want you to know that I didn't even catch the “everything-free” part of this cookbook until after I'd been using it for a week or so! That's how good the recipes are! Here's the description:
Cooking without gluten, dairy, and white sugar is not only easy; the results are also dizzyingly delicious. Clean cooking is a growing trend even among people who aren’t allergic to gluten, dairy products, or white sugar, and it boasts the benefits of slimming you down, giving you more energy, packing your body with nutrients, and making you feel healthier.
This gorgeously photographed and styled cookbook embodies the gastronomical mantra of clean cooking and eating, featuring Elisabeth Johansson’s wonderfully fresh smoothies and juices; alternative breakfasts and snacks; new ways of baking bread; hearty vegetarian, seafood, and meaty meals; and sweet offerings that you can enjoy without a guilty conscience.
The Recipes I'm going to share from this book are:
- Red Fruit Salad p. 57-58
- Black Sesame Seed Dressing P. 120
- Blueberry Oatmeal p. 49
