Eggplant & Mango Soba Noodles

For Cookbook Club this month, we’re cooking Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi. I love Ottolenghi… he’s one of my favorite chefs to follow on social media and I find his recipes universally delicious! I was introduced to him several years back when my sister gave me the cookbook Jerusalem that he co-authored with Sami Tamimi. It…

Goodbye 2019!

Happy New Year! Another year of blogging down! As I always say this time of year, I’m proud of us for keeping up with Bon Appetit Baby! for another year. With pregnancy and new parenthood, we’re still not blogging quite as much as we used to, but we’re still here! This was a big year for us,…

River Doughnuts

Growing up, we would visit my grandparents at their home on the Rappahannock River for days and weeks at a time in the summers. We’d spend all day in the water and when we weren’t in the water, we were eating. The best was when my grandfather, known for his sweet tooth, would make us…

Pumpkin Chip Bread

December’s cookbook of the month is a classic – Joy of Cooking. Originally written  and self-published by Irma Rombauer in 1936,  this quintessentially American cookbook has sold more than 18 MILLION copies. We don’t own it, but I knew someone in my family did, so we borrowed a copy of the 1997 edition from my…

Cranberry-Lime Pie

In case you thought we hadn’t shared enough pies recently… here’s the THIRD of the pies I made for Thanksgiving. I was eyeing the Cranberry Crumble Pie from Sister Pie, but when I read it in more detail, it just had a few too many steps for me to tackle along with the other pies….

Pumpkin Pie

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! We both love Thanksgiving, and Selim is extra happy this year because I made him his favorite Thanksgiving treat – pumpkin pie! Selim has very strong feelings about pie and dessert in general, and this pie was deemed worthy of Thanksgiving! (I actually made three pies…

Salted Maple Pie

So it seems like our cookbook club is the only thing that’s keeping us blogging this fall… I guess that’s a good thing! We’re still really enjoying participating and are loving the variety of cookbooks selected. For November, we’re cooking (or baking as it were!) through Sister Pie, by Lisa Ludwinski. The selection is certainly…

Chaat Masala Smashed Potatoes

Tonight we made our second recipe from October’s cookbook club selection – Indian-ish! Participating in the cookbook club has already expanded our cooking horizons and we’ve only been doing it for about 6 weeks. The first one this month was Indian-ish Chicken Breasts. We tweaked this recipe a little, but the Indian(ish) flavors are definitely still…

Indian-ish Chicken Breasts

Our first month of participating in the Kitchn’s Cookbook Club was a resounding success! We impressed ourselves by making several things out of September’s selection – Salt Fat Acid Heat. [See: Pasta with Clams & Sausage, Chocolate Cupcakes with Rosewater Cream, and Sausages & Roasted Veggies in Agrodolce] For October, the book selected is Indian…

Sausages & Roasted Veggies in Agrodolce

Today’s the last day of September and therefore the last day of our first month of the Kitchn Cookbook Club. We did an even better job than anticipated of cooking through Salt Fat Acid Heat, by Samin Nosrat. We shared our Pasta with Clams & Sausage and Chocolate Cupcakes with Rosewater Cream, but we also…
