Secrets of Salsa: A Bilingual Cookbook | Mexican Women of Anderson Valley
post image
Pickpick

3 F this morning - it‘s going to another very long winter at this rate. 🥶 So I‘m thinking Mexico - shrimp tacos for dinner!

This is such a great little cookbook, highly recommend. It sprang from salsa days at an adult ESL program where students were learning to translate kitchen measurements. Proceeds benefit the school.

I‘m thinking about the avocado/tomatillo salsa, if I can find either of those ripe!

TheSpineView Sounds yummy! 22m
Tamra @TheSpineView I‘m looking forward to it! 4m

I listened to a big chunk of HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE while I baked one of the great mysteries of my culinary life: Nigella Lawson‘s cranberry cake. It‘s delicious, and it never looks anything like the picture because the cranberries always float up into the batter.

I think Canadian cranberries must be much lighter than the UK kind. The recipe says 6oz = 3/4 cup, but I‘ve found it‘s more like 2+ cups. #audiobaking

xicanti PLUS SIDE: because the cranberries float up, the cake forms a seriously good sugar crust. Everyone I‘ve ever served it to loves it. 16h

Lovely, like a chat with an old friend. Gorgeous photos, intriguing recipes I can‘t wait to try. I‘m glad I got this from the library, I‘m not sure I‘d need to own it, but the perfect read to pop in and out of while chilling.

Lauraandherbooks I like the title 😁 2d
Sace It's the title that makes me want to read it 😂 3h

I forgot to take a picture of my #Booknbrunch for #LitsyPartyOfOne As I‘ve said I‘m not much of a snack at at home so here‘s the remnants of my bacon and egg sandwich 🥪. I don‘t think I‘ll finish Royal Holiday today because I unexpectedly have a toddler. But I did finish an audiobook this morning so I‘m still making progress.

Bus book #3! (I don‘t think I‘ll be able to finish #4.) I hate cooking (for many reasons). But after reading this book, I‘m excited about looking at the chore of cooking with a renewed interest! The writing makes every kind of cooking seem so achievable. And the illustrations are so so so charming. 🍏🍅🧄🥔🥐

These recipes are inspired by Jane Austen‘s letters + novels. Many of the recipes are reworkings from cookbooks from that time. For each section, she includes excepts from Austen‘s letters/novels.

This is a lovely cookbook with a cloth cover, thick matte pages, + numerous color photos. There are informative two pages descriptions on things like mealtimes (General Tilney), servants, table arrangements. The best recipes are the deserts and breads.

CoffeeCatsBooks Also, when I was ordering this, it looked like the publisher is putting out a new blue hardcover edition, so I am not sure if that one will also have the cloth cover. 2d
Andrew65 Sounds great but likely to make you hungry. 😂 2d

These Cherries 🍒 en Chemise are inspired by the dried cherries Mrs. Jennings offers the broken hearted Marianne.

These are Baked Compote Apples. The Bates‘ twice-baked apples 🍎 would have been left for 2-3 nights in a baker‘s cooling brick oven, but these can be made in a conventional oven.
