We had our second cookbook club meet up! Sadly, this is the last one for the year. With November and December coming up, there’s too many holidays and family commitments that it would be hard to schedule something. Our next one will be in January 2018 and I’m thinking a healthy resolutions type cookbook to ring in the new year! Does anyone have suggestions? I’m thinking maybe one of Skinnytaste’s cookbooks but totally open to suggestions of any healthy cookbooks you’ve used and enjoyed!
This cookbook meet up, we cooked out of Megan‘s Cast Iron Gourmet. I recently posted the fig and rosemary glazed skillet chicken recipe from her book and the entire cookbook just had loads of comfort food that I felt was a great choice for our cookbook club this time around. There were other suggestions thrown around but we ultimately decided on this cookbook and it certainly did not disappoint!
If you’re curious what cookbook club is all about, I talked about how to get one started in our very first cookbook club meet up post here!
My friend Megan made the Cauliflower and Cashew Stir-Fry with Harissa. It was a great vegetable dish and she added some red bell peppers to make it even more flavorful!
My friend Jessica made this delicious Herb and Goat Cheese Frittata. She had never made a frittata prior to this and for her first time, it was REALLY good. So much flavor and so light and fluffy!
Last cookbook meet up we didn’t have dessert. Everyone made some sort of carb or protein and by the end, we all wanted something sweet. I ended up breaking out my Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups hahaha so I think Erin learned that someone needed to step up and make dessert. She chose to make this Gingerbread Coffee Cake and oh my gracious. I had one GIANT slice and there was barely any left. We had to save some for her to bring home to her family but if we didn’t, I would have asked for her to keep the rest with me LOL
It was incredibly moist and I loved the crumb topping. It was the perfect cake for the season and made me wish holidays were already here!
I made the fig and rosemary glazed skillet chicken again and I think everyone liked it! There weren’t any thighs left :)
I had to add this in here. Winston was completely smitten for baby Sawyer! He wanted to babysit her. And when I say babysit…I mean jump on her and knock her over then lick her entire face LOL
