The Kitchn Cookbook by Sara Kate Gillingham and Faith Durand

If you’ve never checked out Apartment Therapy’s website (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/), you definitely need to ASAP! It is one of my favorite websites for home design inspiration, tutorials, and daydreaming about possibilities for future living spaces. The Kitchn, their sister website, focuses on delicious, attainable dishes as well as kitchen organization and storage. You can tour some seriously enviable kitchens on their site (http://www.thekitchn.com/).  

Anyway, I was ecstatic to finally get my hands on The Kitchn Cookbook and drool over the delicious recipes and beautiful photographs before trying some out for myself. There’s no shortage of cookbooks with beautiful photography, but I like to rate cookbooks based on the achievability of their recipes. I’m no novice in the kitchen, but there are some recipes that I just don’t have time for (or patience, or, let’s be honest, the money to shell out on super specific ingredients that will take up covetable space in my tiny galley kitchen). The Kitchn Cookbook has great recipes with ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard and spice rack. The recipes are straightforward, concise, and teach you how to set up your space in order to work the most efficiently. Definitely worth checking out if you are a total food geek like me!
