After a decade of co-authoring and recipe developing for some of the most successful and meaningful cookbooks on the market, Julia decided to write her very first solo cookbook. That book, Small Victories, is the sort of book you can only write once: a book that combines all 31 of her years of life experience and passion for cooking at home into one giant love letter to all that she believes in. Small Victories celebrates the way so many of us cook: one step (or “small victory”) at a time. Each recipe of her book (which contains over 100 recipes and hundreds more spin-offs) starts with a tip, trick or technique that you can use to create something delicious, and then offers how to alter or expand on that dish to make something new and different. There are recipes for everything from delicious chocolate cake with raspberry jam and morning muffins to Julia’s beloved Caesar dressing and a Korean clambake.
Through it all I’m working on my own wellness — making stress management and sleep a priority, tweaking what I eat, staying flexible when it comes to necessary change, making sure to move every day, and surrounding myself with inspiring people. Also being realistic and nice to myself if I slip up — I want to be this kind of person for myself and others.
I can barely contain my excitement about all the amazing small-scale print publications debuting these days! As much as I love working online (and I do), I also love seeing people stretch themselves and put their all into making truly beautiful magazines and books. Two of my new favorites are The Hungry Girls’ Cookbooks and Pure Green Magazine.
My Kitchen via James Martin (Collins). Divided into spells, this good–looking photographed book provides easy recipes. You can jump in also begin cooking from your current spell without worrying regarding not finding certain ingredients. The recipes cover everything courses evenly, favoring red meat (beef plus fennel koftas, potted salt beef with gherkins, rack of lamb with vegetable broth) dishes. There are plenty of simple dishes (pumpkin soup plus chestnut cream, leek plus potato soup, pancakes with pistachio gremolata) and. Martin‘s focus is on constituents, not calories, so this book falls into my Sunday lunch group, when I tend to prepare a heavier meal.
