Fortunately, I had a co-author, so I didn’t have to worry about recipe headnotes (which I understand can be very challenging to write well) or features (research, research, and more research), both of which give voice to a cookbook and help inform and connect the reader to the recipes. I also didn’t have to handle the manuscript edits! I could focus on what I enjoy most — food and photos!
As much as I don’t like to admit it, food is the weak link in my self-care practice. I don’t have a horrible diet, but having grown up with a mother who packed me cucumber and sprout sandwiches for lunch, I just have an “I eat healthy” point-of-view that isn’t exactly true. I haven’t fully connected what food does for my body, but I’m making my way there. I’m lucky enough to have met Heather Crosby, a creative entrepreneur who has embraced the responsibility of being accountable for her own health after years of being told she’d be on medication for the rest of her life.

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.
