On Hiatus

I had a realization this week. With just over 3 weeks until our wedding day, my recipe backlog has taken on a life of its own and the chances of me correcting that situation in the next couple of weeks is basically zero. So rather than run the risk of losing all of these food gems entirely (because there has been some good food coming out of my kitchen lately!), I'm going to at least get on top of my filing system and hopefully flag a few recipes to remember to put up on the blog when life returns to normal. I hope to be back in October, after a wedding, an Iceland adventure, and some serious work in Geneva. In the meantime, stroll the archives or maybe consider some new cookbooks of your own. My favorite purchases of the year so far have been:
  1. Fish without a Doubt - mostly simple, but delicious recipes. This book demystifies the cooking of fish.
  2. Planet Barbecue! - an international cookbook focused on grilling is perfect for summer. Despite the international aspect, most of the recipes are very approachable.
  3. Big Small Plates - this book isn't for everyone, but if you don't mind making tacos that have 6 components, then the results are worth it. If you do take the plunge, try the duck burgers.
