My apologies for the complete lack of cooking and baking posts these past few weeks. I spent a good chunk of the new year with a cast on my arm (yaaaay), moved to Toronto, and have been training for a race. Needless to say, baking has not been at the top of my ‘to-do’ items.
Now that I am settled and completly healed I am going to try and post more often on cooking/baking, especially healthy and low fat recipes!
What a week! If you’re like me you’re probably still recovering from late night election watching.
As the dust settles after the election, I find myself inspired by all things American and found this cute book of all American recipes. I don’t own this book, but it looks like fun (and full of great recipes too).
Find it on Amazon. Try it and let me know what you think!
Happy post-election day to all our American readers, and happy reading!
It’s Wednesday already and that means it’s time for another selection from my bookshelf! Last week I featured a book full of sweet treats, so I thought this week I would feature a book more on the savoury and spicy side.
Everyday Indian is an extremely delicious and accessible guide to Indian cooking, written by Bal Arneson. Bal is a chef, Food TV personality, and cook book author becoming increasingly well known for her tasty and un-intimidating Indian recipes.
Everyday Indian is a great book worth owning. There are many vegetarian options in this book, as well as many vegan friendly recipes. Indian food uses many legumes and vegetables often making it a very balanced choice for people going meatless or meat-reduced.
I have made the lentil soup. So easy, healthy, and delicious!
I also made homemade paneer cheese using Bal’s book. I substituted goat milk in for cow’s due to allergies.
Bal’s website features some recipes that are free to try. Check them out!
Everyday Indian is not Bal’s most recent book but it is the one I own and love. You can pick up this book at Chapters/Indigo or Amazon.
If you are curious about starting to cook Indian food this is a great place to start!
