Cook It Up! Cookbook Challenge - August Edition
I love to cook and love cookbooks so I was thrilled when Trish over at Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity proposed a new challenge centering around using our cookbooks. The rules are pretty simple. Focus on using our cookbooks more and link up the first Saturday of the month.
5 in 5. The concept is 5 fresh ingredients and 5 minutes. The 5 minutes is actually more like 15 or 20 but they are all quick and all the ingredients are fresh as promised.
This is what I made this month:
Breaded Chicken and Mozzarella with Basil Sandwiches
Breaded Chicken with Tomatoes and Basil
So I was going to do a description about each one but then I realized I pretty much have the same thing to say about all of these. All the ingredients are easy to find (the toughest was Prosciutto) and all the recipes are easy to make. They're unique and fresh tasting and this is a great cookbook to use after a long day. All of these are 1 pan meals so even the cleanup is quick.
This isn't necessarily the most exciting cookbook. There's nothing here that I absolutely HAVE to make but it's a good go-to cookbook. Even my picky family enjoys the food from this one so it will be staying on my shelf for awhile!
Next month I think I'm going to be focusing on Carla Hall's cookbooks! She has 2 - Carla's Comfort Foods and Cooking With Love.
I'm also linking up with Weekend Cooking at Beth Fish Reads
