Cookbook 128: BBQ Secrets – Summer BBQ Guide

I backed Rich Evans’s BBQ Secrets: Summer BBQ Guide on Kickstarter because it’s always great to have new ideas for making BBQs more interesting, and we’ve already incorporated one of the recipes (the corn below) into how we cook BBQs permanently.  There are more recipes in here I want to try (except for the seafood, …

Cookbook 126: The Crazy Dumplings Cookbook

I ended up with The Crazy Dumplings Cookbook by Amanda Roberts when I backed her second volume of dumpling recipes on Kickstarter.  I like dumplings a lot, and I was intrigued by the idea that you really can fill dumplings with almost everything and they still taste amazing.  Naturally I went with the non-standard dumpling …

A birthday feast in two courses

So I promised my sister that I’d make her a birthday feast at a time that worked for both of us, as a gift to her.  This weekend was the weekend in which we did it.  Jacinta’s (my sister) task was to select recipes that she wanted from my cookbooks.  As you can guess, this …

Cookbook 101: Steam Cooking

We got Steam Cooking: 100 delicious and healthy food recipes for all steamers by Jenny Stacey forever and ever ago.  I cooked one dish from it once, but never really touched it again, and the recipes I made from this this time reminded me why.  Because we were eating with 2 vegetarians I steamed some …

Cookbook 71: The Australian Heritage Cookbook

I bought The Australian Heritage Cookbook: A collection of recipes and memories from Australian kitchens by Joy Hayes second hand – possibly sight unseen from an online book store.  I was looking for books with certain types of Australian recipes – either Golden Syrup dumplings, or jams and chutneys with Australian available ingredients.  This book …

Cookbook 30: Quick ‘n’ Easy Asian Wok & Stir Fry

So I cooked from the Uncle Ben’s and Kan Tong, and Masterfood sponsored Quick ‘n’ Easy Asian Wok and Stir Fry by Robyn Martin.  This book is out of print, and really that’s probably not an unfortunate occurrence.  It is true that the recipes are quick and relatively easy, but they’re just not very interesting. …
