Dinner: Changing the Game

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

I’ve always loved meal planning and now that I have the new Dinner: Changing the Game by Melissa Clark I feel like I need more days to plan meals for!  Each dish is meant to stand alone and be dinner in itself so that eliminates the need to think of sides which makes life tons easier. Some dishes could use a salad on the side (like the many roast chickens that sound ahhhh-mazing). First on my list to try are the Anchovy Chicken with Lemon and Capers, Georgian Lamb Kebabs with Dill Sauce and Ginger Pork Meatballs with Cilantro and Fish Sauce!

Book Review: Harvest

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Spring is almost here and I am so behind on starting plants from seeds…at least now I know what plants I need in my container garden this year thanks to Harvest by Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis.  One of my favorite foods is rhubarb because my grandmother always had a ton of it growing in her backyard when I was little.  I have an embarrassing number of rhubarb recipes and am adding the Small-Batch, Quick-Pickled Rhubarb (page 10) to the list.

Harvest is great for so many reasons.  It gives a background on each of the plants, tells when in the season to harvest, and ways to use the plant.  There are some plants that I can’t grow where I live, but I love them so now I have a new way to use them…like lemongrass salt scrub when I have leftover lemongrass.  I recommend this book to anyone that loves gardening, cooking and making homemade floral arrangements or gifts.

Now I just need to figure out how to grow a pomegranate tree in Germany so I can make the pomegranate margarita.  Wish me luck!
