All of these elements translate into the Love & Lemons Cookbook, perfectly! I love the format of this book in that it’s veggie-centric, embraces seasonal produce and teaches you how to cook with what you have on hand. The chapters are organized by ingredient, so like the cover says, “an apple-to-zucchini celebration of impromptu cooking”.

The recipes are colorful, many of them super simple and well-seasoned. In the first chapter, she goes on to describe her method for cooking, what are musts for having in your pantry and how to cook backward. Pick a fruit or vegetable that you love, go to that chapter and you have great choices for inspiring dishes to make in no time.

  1. I make waffles or pancakes every Sunday and can’t wait to try these out!

  2. Thanks for the podcast love! I CANNOT wait for your book. Just saw it in your sidebar…and the cover made me really happy!

  3. Beets. I’ve bought them precooked and didn’t like the taste. Some people say they taste better raw, but I’d like to know how to cook one properly on my own.

  4. Artichokes ~ love them, can’t cook them! :)) The waffles look really amazing, I have to try them. Love your recipes, so yumi and easy to follow! <3

  5. You know honestly I don’t think there is one that I don’t know how to cook. But then maybe my age is a factor!

  6. I don’t think I’ve ever successfully made carmelized onions.
