School is in! This is the first year I have sent a kid to school. I feel like I an official mom. Do you ever have those moments where you look at your life and you can’t believe that you are old enough to be a mom. A real mom. Dropping off Isaiah at school was surreal. He loved it and I loved that he loved it so we are all loving it.
I think the final step to being an official mom is to get a mini van. Which by the way I am totally ok with. In fact I can’t wait to drive a mini van. SO convenient.
Isn’t it fun to be a mom?
Anyway…the point of this post is tell you about a book that will help you be the super mom that you are in the kitchen. I If you are struggling with creativity in the kitchen or feeling like you have to have a recipe to pull a meal together, you NEED this book. The Everlasting Meal completely changed my view of cooking. I have always prided myself on creating a meal out of nothing. In fact once I went a month without grocery shopping on a bet. But this book gave me so many ideas on how to pull together a meal with simple ingredients.
What the book is……
An interesting to read. It is not a cookbook, but a book of processes. In one chapter she teaches you how to roast a mountain of vegetables and use them in soup, sandwiches, a puree, etc. No fuss or frills. She doesn’t give a lot of recipes more methods and lets you experiment in the kitchen. She make you feel like anyone can do it. And believe me you all can do it. This book is for the seasoned cook and the total newbie. I have started giving it as a wedding gift I love it that much. Wow I am sounding like a commercial. This isn’t a sponsored post I just love this book and thought you would too.
What this book isn’t…….
This book isn’t a health book. Although she does advocate using fresh ingredients and cooking from scratch. Her focus is more on teaching processes, how to minimize your time in the kitchen and pull together simple beautiful meals with good quality ingredients. Happy Reading!
