Menu Idea Monday: Pure Simple Cooking
If you haven't read Diana Henry's Pure Simple Cooking, snag yourself a copy this week!
Diana searched for recipes that sit squarely at the intersection of simple and hearty. She picked recipes that stick to real, healthy ingredients (no cream-of-anything soup here), and that are simple enough for a busy weeknight dinner.
What I liked best about this book was the uniqueness of the dishes. Nothing was strange or something you'd worry about your family eating, but it wasn't your run-of-the-mill, in-every-cookbook-I've-already-got kind of fare. If you're looking for something different to do at dinner time but have a limited amount of time and energy to invest, check this out. You'll love it.
