the kitchn cookbook

This is a fairly new addition to my collection. I picked it up in November 2014 as we were planning our kitchen remodel. If you haven’t already read the renovation story, you should check it out. Big changes! Anyway, I wasn’t familiar with until I started reading the book – which I grabbed because it had some great pictures of kitchens in it. And if it had a few recipes – great! I had a lot of fun reading through the first half of the book – it’s actually a pretty innovative cookbook, depending on what you’re looking for – but didn’t really get fired up about cooking out of it until it recently won the 2015 James Beard award for best general cookbook. Congrats! Of course, I immediately decided it was my book of the week.
