I can't resist a good book, can you?
Here's what caught my eye at the library this week...
First up... "Unconventional & Unexpected American Quilts below the Radar" by Roderick Kiracofe, a wonderful collection of quilts from between 1950-2000. These are quilts not often seen, quirky, improvisational, and sometimes not perfectly made, but a visual delight!
From the kitchen..."Healthy Every Day" by Pete Evans, a judge for one of those cooking programs. He tends towards the Paleo way, but there are no hard & fast rules. I enjoy trying out new recipes, but tend to pick ones that use what I normally have here in the pantry. I'll test a couple out this weekend, like his 'super summer salad', and 'spiced crispy chicken' using quinoa flakes - which I do have in the pantry - frying organic chicken first then baking it. A few of these recipes do call for a few ingredients that I will need to go shopping for first though! There's a section on cultured food, one of the oldest ways of preserving but seems to be the newest craze just now!
