Cookbook Club

I’m excited to kick off February with a little something new I’m doing in collaboration with my friend Nina over at Peace, Love and Good Food!
Nina and I met almost five years ago when our oldest children were just tiny babies and she’s become one of my closest friends. We both share a passion for food and making healthy meals for our families and we’re always swapping recipes back and forth for each other to try.

Nina and I have been talking about creating a link up for some time now and a cookbook club seemed like a no-brainer. I get to share my love for books and cooking with others, and I simply can’t think of anything better. 

So what’s a cookbook club you ask? 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 Nina’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 about it. Add a review of the recipe, any notes or 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’re turning to one of our very favorites- Ina Garten! Her recipes are something special 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. 

We hope to see many of you here next Wednesday, which also happens to be Valentine’s Day! This gives you a week to find something yummy to make and post. We can’t wait to see what everyone is cooking! 

– Nina and Allie

    That sounds SO fun!!! I would love if you could post the cookbooks for the next 3 months at a time so I can prep – I typically get my cookbooks from the library.
