In My Kitchen—March 2018

Here’s this month’s In My Kitchen hosted by Sherry’s Pickings.

I am so ready for March.   For February being the shortest month, it was unbelievable tedious, frustrating and maddening at work.  But, with March comes Spring Break…so there is that.


I received a great cookbook, Sweet Potato Soul by Jenné Claiborne.  We are not vegetarian and definitely not vegan, but this might be my new favorite cookbook.

You can read my review here and see a recipe from the book here (Coconut Corn Chowder).

Lemons Are a Girls Best Friends is just a cute little book.  Petite in size, it holds 120 recipes highlighting 60 super foods.  

Janet Hayward includes an “inside” and an “oustide” recipe for each featured ingredient.  (“Inside” refers to traditional recipes for ingestion—salads, smoothies, entrees.  “Outside” refers to recipes and techniques for making your own beauty products.)  Look for a full review here soon.

I hate to post this next bit, especially after featuring these two healthy recipe books, but here goes:

Utz Pub Mix

Sometimes you can find it at Aldi’s but most of the time we purchase it at World Market.   There is totally nothing healthy about this stuff but it is delicious (and addictive).

March’s IMK is going to be pretty book heavy.  I also purchased the next Cook the Books‘ selection:  Shark’s Fin and Sichuan Pepper by Fuchsia Dunlop.

You can read the CTB announcement post here.  Shark’s Fin is the April/May featured book.

If you’re Spring Breakin’ soon, you might want to pick up one of these books for the road or at least some Pub Mix to munch on during the trip.
