IN MY LIFE
Starting off with good news: my daughter had her auditions for youth orchestra last night and we already found out she made it for next year!
I’ve also been exploring new cookbooks from the library since we have our kitchen functioning again. My latest favorite is “Small Victories” by Julia Turshen (Buy if from B&N here (#aff): http://www.savings.com/zgj1s
I became aware of Julia because she helped Gwyneth Paltrow write her cookbooks that I love (http://www.savings.com/zgj1w). So when I heard of Turshen’s first solo project, I had to check it out…and I’m so glad I did. Not only does she take recipes that look complex and break them down for the home cook, she also provides tons of easy variations throughout.
For instance, the chicken soup I made last week was the best homemade stock I’ve ever made. I also whipped up an amazing scallion & cilantro sauce that was great with everything from chicken to tofu.
While this was something I initially checked out from the library, I can’t wait to add it to my personal cookbook library personally.
Our family is also heading to a premier of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie tonight, so as soon as I’m allowed to share my opinions on it, you know I will!
