I'm excited to kick off February with a little something new I'm doing in collaboration with my friend Allie over at Key Ingredients! We have been talking about doing a link up for awhile and we are finally making it happen. Allie is a dear friend and we met almost five years ago when our oldest children were just tiny babies and we instantly bonded over our love of food.
We both have a passion for cooking and making healthy meals for our families. A cookbook link up was a no- brainer when we started talking about this idea of creating a link up!
Here's what we'll do. Every month, we will choose a cookbook to cook from. If you want to participate, pick your favorite or new recipe from the book and make it! On the second Wednesday of each month, we will all link up to my blog or Allie's and share what we've made! Don't have the specific book? No problem! So many of these wonderful recipes can also be found online. Take photos of your finished dish and tell a little bit about it. Add in a review of the recipe and any notes on changes or anything that you may have done or would do differently. Post the recipe if you would like and make sure to credit the book/source!
To kick off our Club, we are turning to one of our very favorites- Ina Garten! Her recipes are some sort of magic and she is a favorite among the both of us. It only seems fitting that we use her newest cookbook, Cooking For Jeffrey, as our pick for the month of love. This cookbook is packed full of delicious recipes and even better stories. If you are a fan of Ina and Jeffrey, you will LOVE this book. It focuses so much on them as a couple with beautiful stories intertwined with the recipes. It's a book you can use in the kitchen AND curl up on the couch with. The stories are wonderfully written!
