Into the kitchen
Now that you've all had time to put tips from the book I last blogged about into practice, here's the follow-up you’ve been waiting for. Your time to cook : a first cookbook for newlyweds, couples & lovers by Robert Blakeslee will tell you everything you need to know to keep yourself and your new friend(s) fed. It could just as easily be titled So you’ve never used a stove: what to do when you’ve just moved out of your parents’ home and all you eat now is take-out, for this well-illustrated tome will walk you through every step, almost as though you are in the author’s kitchen. On my to-try list: stuffed mushrooms, and basil & cheese twirlies. Yum!
To justify the name, before every chapter is a page with marriage trivia, some romantic and some shudder-inducing, but really this book is just a solid introduction to culinary magic with a few exciting frills.
