Cookbook 127: The International Garlic Cookbook

So I’ve been busy, too busy to cook regularly and too busy to blog about what I have cooked.  My new years resolution for 2017 is to cook more and to blog about it quicker, though this might require me to be less busy.  We’ll see how it goes.  And Happy New Year for 2017.  …

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 …

Cookbook 124: The Working Cook: Quick recipes for busy people

I found The Working Cook: Quick recipes for busy people, by Carina Cooper, in Coburg’s Little Free Library.  I was lucky, because after I found this book and took it home, someone set the Little Free Library on fire, and everything was destroyed.  It’s since been restored, and I need to drop by again and …

Cookbook 120: Italian Moms: Spreading their art to every table

I supported Italian Moms: Spreading their art to every table on Kickstarter because it sounded so sweet.  A son helping his recently widowed mother put together a cookbook of her (and some of her friends’) favourite recipes in order to remain financially independent.  The book is peppered with stories about growing up in Italy, moving …

Cookbook 115: Curry: Fragrant dishes from India, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia

I bought Curry: Fragrant dishes from India, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia after flipping through my sister’s copy when I was visiting her for lunch.  It looked interesting, I like curries, and my sister said that the recipes she’d made from it were quite tasty.  So of course I wanted to try it out. I was …

Cookbook 109: The Edible Garden cookbook

I bought The Australian Women’s Weekly, The Edible Garden Cookbook: Growing and cooking vegetables and herbs online from a discount store so there weren’t any reviews and I didn’t really know what I was getting. It wasn’t what I expected.  I was expecting more of a book covering the preservation of produce with the occasional …

Cookbook 102: Best of Vegetarian

I’m sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but February and March have been really busy for me – too busy to even cook from cookbooks.  There has been a big birthday party to organise, an international guest visiting, my wedding anniversary, illness, going away, and lots of other things cropping up on the …

Cookbook 90: Sizzle

Not quite sure where this cookbook came from.  I don’t recall buying it, which doesn’t mean I didn’t, but I have a sneaking suspicion that James was interested in the stir fry nature of the recipes.  This book does have a good representation of vegetarian recipes, but when I cooked from it there were only …

Cookbook 87: Food & Cooking of South America

Food & Cooking of South America by Jenni Fleetwood and Marina Filippelli was another of my “Hey look, a cookbook for $10” purchases.  And like some of the other purchases of this type that I have made, this one wasn’t a good choice for me.  Many of the recipes in the book are of food …

Cookbook 84: Cooking for compliments

I can only assume that Scott’s mother bought this book second hand somewhere due to nostalgia, and then gave it to Scott when he moved out, so he’d have a cookbook that she really loved.  Cooking for compliments by Ruth Morgan was published in 1968, it’s lovely full of UK Imperial measurements and is surprisingly …
