Flatbreads & Flavors | Naomi Duguid, Jeffrey Alford
post image

I have been searching thru my cookbooks this morning seeking legume curry recipes. I took note of the Alford & Duguid collection I accumulated years ago. They produce beautiful books, but I rarely cook from them. 😐 Not because the recipes aren‘t appealing, they capture all the flavors I love, but they do require intention and that is the failing on my part.

LeahBergen I have a couple of these and haven‘t cooked from them either. I treat them more like pretty coffee table books. 😆 1w

Well @Lynnsoprano my attempt at Ukrainian baking, as inspired by our #buddyread of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, did not result in pretty rogaliki 😂. I think it was just too warm today and the dough was supposed to stay chilled. Still tasty, even if I probably won‘t make it again. Rogaliki means “little horns” and I‘m trying to imitate that devilish Valentina 😂😈. Recipe from tagged cookbook; can find online w/ various fillings.

Lynnsoprano It looks wonderful to me! 4mo
ValerieAndBooks @Lynnsoprano it looks like a “Pinterest fail” ?. But still good. I should have waited to make it. 85° today, warmer tomorrow, then temps will drop way down in the 60s. Also, looks like another name for it is rugelach. 4mo
Lynnsoprano @ValerieAndBooks The thing I‘ve found is that there are a lot of similar dishes across Eastern Europe/Russia with different names. Stuffed cabbage rolls are galubtsi in Ukranian, but halupki in other countries. And it sounds as if you‘re as warm as we are! 4mo

ValerieAndBooks @Lynnsoprano and I‘m sure each country/culture feels their versions are the best 😊 4mo

Playing catch up with yesterday‘s theme. I have several cookbooks with “world” in the title & one #AllAroundTheWorld Cookbook. Falling Cloudberries (tagged below) is just subtitled “A World Of Family Recipes” but it‘s it‘s such a gorgeous book I had to include it. 💜

This book fell short of my expectations. The recipes sound good and the book itself was educational. I just was expecting... more.

Transparency: How Leaders Create a Culture of Candor | Daniel Goleman, Warren Bennis, James O'Toole

I‘m not a fan of these books, but it was on a list of “recommended reading” for a library leadership symposium I‘m attending soon. I got the point of the book, which is relevant and good, and then driven hard repeatedly until I just started skimming through the end. Needs updating too. #bbrc #yeahbaby #lessthan150pages

Day 21: clinch covers. I don‘t read romance so you get a poem instead: what calls the heart
To read a book
Is it to be taught a lesson?
To while away the hours?
To learn?
To me
Reading is an escape
From the rat race of life
To hide away in
someone else‘s thoughts
To see if they mirror your own
And if they don‘t
Find something constructive to say
Even if there‘s nothing to say at all. #riotgrams #latepost

This is turning out to be a truly satisfying summer read. Travel writer gets tapped to be something else (careful wording to avoid spoilers, but will probably tag Spoiler).

All the Way to Havana | Margarita Engle
post image

#AMonthOfSongs Day 15: I have never been to #Havana, but reading this lyrical picturebook transports me there, with its vintage cars, tropical climate, trees swaying in the breeze, and warm intimacy shared among family members. Different aspects of #Havana are portrayed here – from life in the country with all the horses and clothes drying in the breeze to a picture of the city with its bustling, active life. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hZt

OriginalCyn620 The pictures are awesome! 8mo
