Meal Inspo – By the Book


You’re looking for inspiration in the kitchen and you don’t know where to start.  We’ve got you covered.  As part of our month-long foodie adventure, we’ve gone ahead and done some research for you!  Thanks to our good friends at Coles here at Westshore Town Centre, we’ve got a go-to-cookbook-list started.


Sue’s Pick: “My favorite cookbook is “Yum And Yummer” by Greta Podleski! It’s a great, comprehensive cookbook with such a range of great tasting recipes, it’s hard to believe that they’re healthy!! it’s hard to pick just one recipe, but I’m choosing the Roasted Asian Salmon Fillets! They are so tasty and it’s a quick simple recipe that takes no time to make and is good hot or cold and with a salad on the side which is great in the summer!

Cathy’s Pick: “I love the cookbook “Onboards” by Lisa Dawn Bolton.  There are so many delicious ideas for putting together boards.  Every page is complete with colour photos and inspiration for creating the most delicious, mouth watering spreads and accompanying home made dips.  I love pulling out this book when I am planning any dinner party.”

Janine’s Pick: “Oh She Glows had essential and delicious vegan recipes for everyone.  It’s a great collection of recipes that anyone can make and everyone will enjoy!  All in all a stellar cookbook to keep in your kitchen!”

Becky’s Pick:  “Campfires aren’t just for hot dogs and marshmallows any more – up your campfire cooking game with “The Backyard Fire Cookbook”!  Not only is this book chock full of easy, tasty recipes and mouth-watering pictures, but it also contains tons of tips, tricks and pointers to ensure you make the most of your supplies and time.  Check out the Glazed Cinnamon-Sugar Peaches, Smoky Ember-Roasted Eggplant Dip, or the Foil Pack French Dip – and don’t forget to invite me! “
