Another lovely afternoon of delicious food and foodie talk. MMM…
This cookbook has been on my shelf as long as I have had a cookbook shelf. After todays event, I was pleased to be reassured that it’s place is deserved.
We all agreed that the book is dated. The ingredients are really basic compared to what you would find in books written in the last ten years. That being said, the recipes are delicious. They are easy to make for beginners, simple enough for a weeknight, and tasty enough for company.
Really this is the best basic cookbook I own. Though I don’t feel like I’m learning something new every time I cook a new dish, it is reassuring to know that I have a great go to book for easy dinners when I’m not feeling like challenging myself.
Here was our menu for the afternoon:
Lets start with Devon’s Pineapple Sangria please.
And some Crunchy Glazed Pecans
Follow that up with Randie’s Smoked Salmon Cheesecake…
and Ashley’s Christmas Salad
Carol’s Northwest of the Border Enchiladas.
My Garden Fresh Zucchini Soup
Dessert you may ask?
KT brought Dark and White Brownies (with ice-cream for added gluttony.)
And we finished off the afternoon with some rum… Meredith’s Apple Bread Pudding with Cider Rum Sauce.
