February 2009 COTM: A New Way to Cook by Sally Schneider
Welcome to the links thread for the February 2009 Cookbook of the Month. You may wish to bookmark this thread for future reference, as it contains links to all the other threads for these cookbooks.
Instead of having another thread for general discussion, recipe planning, links, and previous picks and pans, let's use this one. I'll copy over the links posted earlier, as well as some additional ones. Others are welcome of course to post more links.
Here are the links for the threads for the full length recipe reviews.
Vegetables & Beans and Other Legumes
Pasta and Grains
Fish and Shellfish
Poultry and Meats
Quick Breads from Pizza to Pancakes
Soups & Salads
Happy Cooking, and many thanks to Foxy Fairy for taking over from here!
Thanks also to the many fellow cooks out there who make this project such a joy.
re: The Dairy Queen
Tonight I've planned to make a pasta dish with garlic, and anchovies, fried in EVOO with red pepper flakes. I think it's on page 58 or there abouts... It's really a good ole aglio olio but I want to see what's diffferent in her version. I probably will add the sage she mentions as a variation. Monday night is usually macaroni night here but I wanted to do something other than a red sauce. One of her salads will finish the meal.
re: The Dairy Queen
Well, I mentioned in the other thread that I wanted to make the turkey burgers, but I'll probably wing it on how much of the apple mixture needs to go in. I'm thinking those will be great with sweet potato fries (my favorite!)! I also want to make the baked beans at some point. I also am intrigued by her use of ancho chiles in smoking, so I might have to talk the husband about doing that at some point.
Lucky me, my household is on a new vegetarian no flour no sugar eating plan and I'm getting a lot of new ideas from this book.
I have bookmarked-
Ginger Lentil Soup
Steamed Leeks Vinaigrette
Greens with Currants and Pine Nuts
Hummus (thx to Rubee's report)
French Winter Vegetable Soup
Beans and Wild Mushrooms in Fennel Broth
Carrots in Chermoula
Pumpkin Seed Sauce
I recommend her earlier book, Improvisational Cook, too--not only inspirational, it has a lot of v. good recipes.
