In all the craziness, I haven’t busted open the cookbooks since October, for the Pass the Cook Book Club! I am super excited to be back with the club. This month Christiane from Taking On Magazines picked the recipes from The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook. All three of the recipes she picked sounded out of this world! Choosing one was rough, but I chose wisely.
I love Christiane’s site. She and I often flip through the same magazines, and have even teamed up in the past on the same recipe. She has my kind of taste buds (except, I have a much deeper love of chocolate) and when Dudette – her daughter – reviews dinner, it’s priceless. Even before we get to the recipes, or the club, you should go check her page out!
As for the club: It’s pretty simple. Once a month you pick one of 3 selected recipes from a designated book and give it a go. You don’t need to have a blog, just want to try something new. Whether it’s a sweet or savory dish, you give it a go, fix it up for you and your family, and give us some feedback. Hop over to the facebook page if you would like to join!
On to the recipe, there was a seafood lasagna calling my name, but I knew Handsome wouldn’t appreciate that (and seeing as lasagna by nature is a lot of servings, I skipped). The second choice was a vegetable pot pie. Oh heck yeah that sounded awesome. Homey. And Comforting. (I’m on NyQuil, excuse the periods).
Lastly, there was this… Oh yeah this perfect white chocolate mousse. It was worth the prep. Worth the mess. Worth the 14 extra pounds it added to my hips.
