I've been in a cooking slump. I've not been meal planning or feeling inspired in cooking this winter. Time for another cookbook challenge - where I get out one of my cookbooks and deliberately try some new recipes.
It has been a pleasure to have Mennonite Girls Can Cook cookbook on my counter the last couple weeks. Not only did I find some good recipes, but the pictures and extra comments, stories, and devotionals make this cookbook special.
I wouldn't call this cookbook low-fat or particularly health conscious. Some of the recipes are special holiday treats that are too complicated, and rich, for every day. But many are simple country cooking that can fit into a busy schedule. Many of the recipes are family favorites from generations past and call for basic ingredients already in my kitchen. The exception would be the gluten-free recipes which contained things I never heard of.
I didn't take many photos but some of our favorites were apple pancakes, sausage quiche, blueberry muffins, french toast, blueberry scones, meatballs, green bean stew, and butterhorns.
Tomorrow I'll share the recipe for the tacos.
Do you have a favorite cookbook you are working through recently?
