My friends Cara and Phoebe are brains and cooks behind the quarter-life cooking blog Big Girls, Small Kitchen. Their tasty, fun blog is read by quarter-lifers all over the world looking for great recipes that fit into the context of post-college life. Even though I am not, eh-hem, post-college anymore, I love reading their blog, too. Yes, it takes me back to my own single days in New York, but the recipes are also amazing. In fact, many of them fit right into my life as a home cook feeding a family. And now, the girls have come out with a book titled In the Small Kitchen: 100 Recipes from our Year of Cooking in the Real World.
The neat thing about this book is that it is chock full of great recipes and organized by section based on life event. For example, the girls have recipes for meals that can be made at the last minute, meals that help save money at the grocery store, and for baked goods are great to give to friends and family. Each recipe has been meticulously tested and the instructions are clear and well-written. So far I’ve made several recipes from the book, the favorite being the Lotus Blondies pictured above.
Despite the age difference (oh, how I wish I could re-live those years again!) this book is indeed great for young families. It is also a FABULOUS graduation gift for any recent college graduate in your life. I am so excited to share this with you today that I am giving a copy away, courtesy of William Morrow. Enjoy!
