COOKBOOK CLUB PT 2

cookbook club | designlovefest

last month we had our second cookbook club meet up and this time the book we selected was and let me tell ya it was a hit! (you can read about our cookbook club here and what we made last month) every dish we made this time was so good, full of flavor, fresh and interesting. i really love his book and the intro is especially beautiful on his appreciation and understanding for Jerusalem and the rich history it carries for many people of different religions and backgrounds. victoria actually selected the book but it was pretty perfect timing as i had just returned from israel two days before and was able to pick up some spices for my dish during my time there. (ps, i am still putting together my israel travel post for you guys!)

here are the dishes we made/tried: 

victoria made the braised chicken and it was unbelievably good. she said it was time intensive but the chicken was fall of the bone tender and so flavorful. it called for chicken thighs and to be marinated over night and cooked with whole lemons. it was a real win! we gave her the grand prize.

elizabeth made the cauliflower with hazelnuts. it was the perfect weekday side dish for dinner. and she said it was very easy.

turkey meatballs – i (joanie) was really impressed with the ease of this dish. i love how many fresh herbs it used and also the grated zucchini added a ton of moisture and upped the veggie count! i ended up having to add bread crumbs because i didn’t let the moisture out of the zucchini well enough. really what i should have done and would do in the future is grate it, put it in a colander, sprinkle with salt, let sit for 15 minutes and then push the extra juice out of it. it’s amazing how much liquid they hold! the sauce that this recipe calls for is amazing and really makes the whole dish. i feel like this one is really family friendly. – joanie

bri – i made the squash with pine nuts, tzakiki, and za’atar. hardest part was cutting the squash (but i’m weak). the rest was a breeze. it gives more specific instructions on roasting (skin side down etc) but i just threw them in a cast iron pan and gave it a stir once or twice and it came out great. will definitely make that again!

    You guys should try a plant based book club one month! I love the books by “Oh She Glows” (she has an everyday cooking one I often reference for myself) or Thug Kitchen!

    There are SO many good recipes from It’s All Good. I love the thai burgers, vietnamese salad, and the braised chicken with olives is amazing. There’s also a chicken recipe with smoked paprika that’s very good.

    You should check out Salad for President by Julia Sherman (salads by artists!) or Back Pocket Pasta by Colu Henry (easy and delicious pasta!). Both are awesome cookbooks!

    It’s All Good is one of those cookbooks I keep coming back to–I’ve made just about every recipe in this book! My faves are the Salmon Burger with Pickled Ginger + Coriander; Grilled Asparagus + Portobellos with Shallot + Soy Dressing; Veggie Dumplings; and, Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad with Carrot-Ginger Dressing. Kid, husband and baby-approved too 😉
