Sometimes all you need is a little spark of inspiration to change up your regular cooking routine. The Love & Lemons Cookbook features more than one hundred simple recipes that help you turn your farmers market finds into delicious meals.
The beloved Love & Lemons blog has attracted buzz from everyone from bestselling author Heidi Swanson to Saveur Magazine, who awarded the blog Best Cooking Blog of 2014.
Organized by ingredient, The Love & Lemons Cookbook teaches readers how to make beautiful food with what’s on hand, whether it’s a bunch of rainbow-colored heirloom carrots from the farmers market or a four-pound cauliflower that just shows up in a CSA box. The book also features resources to show readers how to stock their pantry, gluten-free and vegan options for many of the recipes, as well as ideas on mixing and matching ingredients, so that readers always have something new to try.
Stunningly designed and efficiently organized, The Love & Lemons Cookbook is a resource that you will use again and again.
Austin-based blogger Donofrio, whose Love and Lemons blog won the 2014 Best Cooking Blog award from Saveur, shows home cooks how to create veggie-centric dishes inspired by what's fresh at the market. Donforio's goal is to help cooks enjoy increased creative control in the kitchen and master the art of making do with whatever is on hand. There are more than 100 creative twists on starters, salads, pizzas, wraps, along with recipes for sweets. Dishes are quick, light, and fresh: an eggy avocado breakfast taco, a tangy vegetable ceviche, an oven- roasted cauliflower and pear pizza, and leeks and chickpeas in a minted basil-lemon sauce atop pasta. There are some new twists on familiar foods, such as fully loaded crispy sweet potato nachos and spicy carrot ribbon tacos with honey lime yogurt sauce; for dessert, apple crisp kissed with cardamom. Recipes are organized by major ingredient, and vegan or gluten-free dishes are labeled. There are easy-to-use charts for basics and variations of pesto, smoothies, salsa, and guacamole. Also featured are sections on pantry basics, how to use greens, and prepare artichokes. The cookbook's clean graphic design and colorful photos provide delicious imagery. Celebrating spontaneity in cooking with plant-based inspiration, this imaginative recipe collection will please cooks who take their cue from ingredients as much as from recipes.
