The Kitchn Cookbook by Sara Kate Gillingham & Faith Durand

Synopsis From Back Cover:

"There is no question that the kitchen is the most important room of the home," says Sara Kate Gillingham and Faith Durand of Apartment Therapy's beloved cooking site and blog, The Kitchn.

The Kitchn Cookbook offers two books in one: a trove of techniques and recipes, plus a comprehensive guide to organizing your kitchen so that it's one of your favorite places to be.

I'm not sure if it's the holiday season, but I've been on a cookbook kick recently.  There is something about winter setting in, the shorter days, the colder temperatures; that makes me wants to cook more at home.  I find myself digging into the cookbooks I already own, and purchasing new ones, to find the next recipe I want to try out.

With The Kitchn Cookbook, I've gotten a few more recipes to add to my arsenal, but I've also discovered some really good tips, and space saving solutions I'm dying to put into practice.  I live in an apartment, and for those of you who are familiar with an apartment kitchen, you already know that space isn't always there, or at best, it's in a really odd location.

I've tried a few of the drink recipes already, and yes they were delicious.  I'm addicted to rhubarb, so I had to try the rhubarb-vanilla soda.  It was so good, and there are variations for rhubarb-ginger and rhubarb-mint sodas that I want to try out as well.  There is a recipe for Siracha-honey popcorn clusters, and I really want to make it.  I'm not sure if I would actually form it into clusters, or leave it loose.  Either way, it sounds damn good and I want to give it a go.  There is even a recipe for sweet potato and caramelized onion hash that includes a baked egg.  I'm not a huge fan of eggs, but I'm thinking that they may have me talked into it after I give this one a try.

I have a sneaky suspicion that I'll be hanging onto this one for years to come.  I'm just hoping I don't spill too much on it, as I tend to do all of my most loved cookbooks.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, for this review.

I love cookbooks! I've followed their blog for awhile and wondered about the cookbook. It looks like it's definitely worth exploring. Thanks for sharing!

I love cookbooks too, hadn't heard of this one or the blog so thanks for highlighting it. The rhubarb-vanilla soda sounds delicious, might be nice and refreshing for our hot Christmas?
