It’s time for some more recipe talk! New cookbook recipes spotted elsewhere on the web:
First things first: if you’re looking for Halloween recipes from new cookbooks, this article in Publishers Weekly has you covered, with eight recipes from cookbooks such as Little Monsters Cookbook and Recipe for Murder: Frightfully Good Food Inspired by Fiction.
For another (less scary) autumn dessert, Katie Goodman at Good Life Eats offers Pumpkin Custards with Ginger and Cinnamon from Pam Anderson’s cookbook Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers. (We’re looking forward to reviewing this one soon on C&B&R.) Katie adds the word easy in front of the recipe, and we like that!
For an easy-to-prepare main dish to serve before all the sweets, Merry-Jennifer, of the merry gourmet, recommends the Buttermilk Pecan Chicken from Claire Robinson’s 5 Ingredient Fix: Easy, Elegant, and Irresistible. Judging simply from Merry-Jennifer’s photos, we’ve decided this is a must-make.
A salad on the side? The folks at Tasting Table give us Jamie Oliver’s Arizona-inspired Mad Dog Salad, from Jamie’s America. Oliver tosses this salad with southwestern flavors that include avocado, cumin seed, pine nuts, and tortilla chips.
Finally, if you’re losing steam toward the end of the week and are too busy with Halloween preparations to do much more than plug in the slow cooker, Woman’s Day posted four recipes from its cookbook Healthy Slow Cooking: Jerk Chicken, Chicken Paprikash, Beef Gyros, and Slow-Cooker Cranberry Meatballs. Plus, they’re giving away a copy of this cookbook, taking entries through tomorrow, October 29. Missing that would be scary indeed!
That’s all the recipe talk we have for you this week, but it definitely won’t be our last, so please keep coming back. We look forward to seeing you for more!
