Resolved: Be a better cook — A Book List — 8 Comments

  1. Hi Joy. I have just got into Cooking around my French table by Dorie Greenspan – may not have the title quite right! Lots of inspiring stuff – I got it from the library first but then asked for it for Christmas. Happy New Year!

  2. My resolution for improving my cooking this year is to follow the advice from expert cooks to get all the ingredients out and prepped BEFORE starting the actual cooking. I also need to make a resolution not to ask for or buy any new cookbooks during 2014!

  3. I haven’t yet read the new(ish) Pollan (I know, I know)! I have the ATK Cooking School book but haven’t cracked it open yet. I do love ATK and have been a fan for years. I always learn a lot from their books and magazines.

    I love to cook, which is a good thing because I cook dinner more than 300 nights a year. I really need to do a better job of recording my meals, especially the dishes I make up on the fly.

    • This is what I keep meaning to do…keeping some kind of cooking log to record meals and recipes..what worked and what didn’t..what I should change, etc. I have a recipe book on evernote and I can add notes to it..I just don’t …sigh

      • I love that idea. I tried Evernote, too, and didn’t make any progress. I suspect this is something I’d be more likely to do with pen and paper in some kind of notebook that I didn’t mind getting messy so I could do it right in the kitchen.

  4. I prefer baking to cooking, which is just something I have to do. I know, that’s not a good attitude. My favorite cookbook is Jamie Oliver at Home. It is the only one I’ve seen that is organized by garden seasons and I love that. It has basic recipes that inspire me to be creative with my produce.
