Wish List

I love, love, love books! I have them in the living room on a huge shelf, in the kitchen, on the coffee table, in baskets, in the bathroom and (perhaps most annoying to Mitch) shoved under the bed. I can’t help myself. I love to reread, so it’s hard to get rid of any. It’s also hard to resist buying new ones. Here is a list of the books that I’m crushing on right now:

1. Super Natural Every Day: Well-loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen by Heidi Swanson. (She is the author a super-adorable blog called 101 Cookbooks. Check it out!)

2. The Roasted Vegetable by Andrea Chesman. I am not a fan (yet) of tofu, seitan or any other meat replacement thing, if that’s what you call them. I am, however, a huge fan of roasted vegetables. This cookbook has great reviews, and I love that the focus is on veggies.

3. The Vegan Table: 200 Unforgettable Recipes for Entertaining Every Guest at Every Occasion by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. I was browsing through this one at the bookstore the other day. It drew me in with the title. I thought about how fun it would be to impress all my non-veg friends with healthy, delicious party food.

4. My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness by Gwyneth Paltrow. I know, another celebrity cookbook. Ugh. But I also browsed through this one (Yes…I could spend all day at the bookstore without buying a thing, and I have many times). The pages are elegantly designed and she does something that I adore in cookbooks. She offers variations on the same recipe, such as two ways to make white bean soup, just changing a few things at the end.

5. Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life by Sophie Uliano. I already have The Gorgeously Green Diet: How to Live Lean and Green by the same author. She gives so many practical and useful tips about eating healthy and reducing waste in the kitchen, I would love to read what she has to say about beauty products and household items. She manages to explain things we might not want to hear in a positive and non-preachy kind of way.

What’s your favorite cookbook?

  1. I am a big fan of Peter Berley. I just took a cooking class from him at the Institute of Culinary Education here in New York City and on my way out bought his Fresh Food Fast. So many good veggie recipes!
