Cookingbookclub 21

Welcome back to the 21st edition of #cookingbookclub directly from our green kitchen. I hope you did not put the spinach on the fire and that you stocked up on salads because this month we are learning to cook as many vegetables and fruits as possible and we are trying recipes from Giada de Laurentiis!

Cookingbookclub 20 | Ikea’s recipes

I went through the recipes in this collection several times, in the end I didn’t cook anything from here, although I saved a few ideas – well, that’s it. 🙂 But I cooked something else, inspired by Ikea’s recipes, because that’s how creativity works in the kitchen, you read one and you cook another. Preferably

Cookingbookclub 20

Don’t know what to cook this month? 🙂 Servus, today’s #cookingbookclub comes with the weirdest cookbook I’ve ever read: The ScrapsBook from Ikea, written in collaboration with chefs from North America. Book from which we will try – me and you – a few recipes, because it fits with the theme of this month’s green

Cookingbookclub 19 | David Chang’s recipes

The initial idea was that I would cook some noodles with soup, based on David’s ideas. But since the plan at home doesn’t match the one in the supermarket, I ended up with a couple of eggplant recipes. I didn’t want to cook just one and let the second one get wilted and thrown away!

Cookingbookclub 19

Welcome to a new edition #cookingbookclub, our cooking club, where I propose a book, an author or a site every two months, according to an algorithm only known to me. Lol. :)))) We are thus stepping into year number 4 – wow !!!! – and we will have a theme this year as well, because

Cookingbookclub 18 | Martha Stewart’s recipes

Disaster no. 1: It was supposed to be Potato Galette with Smoked Salmon, but a sort of smoked salmon potato salad came out. Boiled potatoes. Smoked salmon. Some finely chopped sour cucumbers. A dressing of lemon zest with mayo. And that’s it. :)))) Disaster no. 2: the chicken salad tarts turned into a salad with

Cookingbookclub 18

We end this year with the #cookingbookclub proposal number 18 (wow!!!). Martha Stewart is an institution itself, she cooks, crochets, plants and when she gets bored she posts on all the social networks and on the website. At 80! :))) You can search for shows on Youtube or on TV, read her books or choose

Cookingbookclub 17 | Stanley Tucci’s recipes

Since we all come from a Traian, of course the list of recipes to try was super-ultra-mega long. 😀 Great thing, at least in my case, that I’m fussy. 🙂 Bruschetta con pomodoro meaning tomato bruschetta: toast, on top of which you put chopped red tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil. I added some celery and

Cookingbookclub 17

This month the #cookingbookclub proposal is an actor/ cookbook author about his Italian family/ producer of culinary shows on CNN and great head of cocktails at the Insta-corona division. 🙂 The only and incomparable Stanley Tucci, about whom I admit that until this year I did not know much, except that he has nice roles

Cookingbookclub 16 | Adi Hădean’s recipes

I don’t know why, but I don’t feel like cooking this time of year. Either my brain is on vacation or it’s from the heat. 🙂 So today we have a recipe instead of the recipes… Plus I like what Adi’s mother cooks, all those pies that look great in pictures, but I’m not allowed

Cookingbookclub 16

This month we have a local proposal again. 🙂 I admit that I have no idea who the most famous Chefs in Romania are, I haven’t watched the shows and the chances of recognizing a person on the street are about zero… not that they aren’t very famous, but because I am nonstop with my

Cookingbookclub 15 | Ina Garten’s recipes

I don’t know how I ended up with a long list of vegetarian/ vegan recipes. Without bothering too much. :))))) What I tried: Moroccan couscous (with vegetables) – see the recipe here. I made Moroccan couscous before, but with chickpeas. This time the recipe is only with vegetables. A tasty disaster. 🙂 Green string beans

Cookingbookclub 15

Hello to a new edition of cookingbookclub, number 15. Today’s proposal is Ina Garten, or Barefoot Contessa, a nice gourmet lady, born in the same year as my father. 🙂 If you watch food shows, you’ve probably seen at least one recipe tried by Ina, even if you didn’t pay attention to the presenter. 🙂

Cookingbookclub 14 | Jamila’s recipes

The good thing about Jamila is that she has instructions, text and video. So from the three combined you should have an approximately similar product at the end. I insist on the word “approximately” because obviously I didn’t really get what she had in the pictures. :)))))) That’s why the old cookbooks were good, with

Cookingbookclub 14

I may have told you before, but every time my mother calls me to tell me that she had cooked something new, she found her recipes on the site at Jamila Cuisine. 🙂 I know, you would expect that after so many episodes, disasters would be the first source of inspiration in the family. Still,

Cookingbookclub 13 | Gordon Ramsay’s recipes

Last year there was #321sourcesofinspiration. This year comes with #foodfriendsandlove. And Gordon Ramsay, who cooks for friends. 🙂 What is Gordon telling us? That he teaches his children that if you want to live to old age and for a healthy lifestyle, you have to eat well. This also means knowing where the food comes

Cookingbookclub 13

Well, with this article we enter season 3 of our reading and cooking club, which, surprisingly, has generated some disastrously tasty attempts in the past years. I don’t know about you, but I relaxed looking for recipes through books, websites and Youtube. And let’s not start talking about the extra kilograms. :))))) As you have
