I recently was the lucky winner of this interesting book, Urban Pantry by Amy Pennington, from Sherri at Little House In Paradise! This morning I plan to finally sit down and take a good look see. Heaven knows I love a well stocked pantry. I would love to some day have a kitchen with an actual pantry, until then this book seems to appeal to those of us with a less than grand sized kitchen. I am hoping to get some useful tips. There are also a good number of recipes as well. I'm looking forward to spending some time with the book, to see if it's a winner.
For now I'm just gonna throw out some photos of recent kitchen experiments from my own Urban Pantry that came off pretty well, a little 'food porn' if you will.
Pasta with asparagus and pistachio. So delicious - however, as I could not find shelled pistachios, there was a bit of heavy labor in preparing the nuts. Well worth it in the end!
Blackberry peach cobbler! Pretty much the taste of summer. Served warm with vanilla ice cream (it's the only way).
Well, I'm off to my coffee and my book. Have you been cooking up anything good lately?
