In our What’s For Dinner segment, Marisa talks through the recipe for braised chicken, green peppers, onions and tomatoes that she made recently. It’s one her mom used to make and tasted like childhood to her.
In How’d You Make That, Joy shares a roasted lemon relish she made recently as a way of using up some organic lemons that were going south.
Then we talked about making treats and other kitchen staples to stock the freezer.
Finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s all about ranch dressing.
Hi friends! You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here. We had every intention of picking the show back up with the new year, but life has gotten in our way a bit.
Marisa has been down with a cold since December 30 and Joy has had some family stuff going on that requires the bulk of her attention. We hope to be back with the show by January 23, but we’re not making any promises. Thank you for being so patient with us.
In the meantime, may we suggest that you check out the ebook we published around this time last year? Resolution Recipes is a collection of plant-based, make ahead dishes that will help you eat well in the new year.
In our “What’s for Dinner” segment, we talk about the yogurt flatbreads from the new Milk Street Tuesday Nights cookbook. They are excellent, as is the entire book.
In our “How’d You Make That?” segment, Joy talks us through the batch of meatballs she made recently that contained nearly no meat, but were entirely delicious.
Next, we talked about some of the little things you can start doing now to help get yourself ready for Thanksgiving (we realize it’s six weeks away, but a little prep now will prevent madness come November).
And in What We’re Loving this week, we share our mutual love of plastic deli containers.
Happy New Year, dear listeners! We hope that this fresh, new year treats you all gently and deliciously. To help with the delicious part, we’ve put together a short digital cookbook that we’re calling Resolution Recipes.
This 12 recipe publication is bursting with tasty plant-based dishes designed to help you eat well throughout 2018. These are some of our basic recipes that we make on Saturday or Sunday so that we can make good, healthy choices throughout the week. Hopefully they’ll do the same for you.
Announcing the Local Mouthful Joy of Cooking Potluck Club!
If you’ve listened to the podcast for any length of time, you may have heard us mention our desire to start a cookbook club. We love the idea of gathering with fellow food lovers to share collaborative, homemade meal.
This spring, we’re finally doing it and we’ve decided for at the first year (and perhaps longer), it will be a Joy of Cooking-centric potluck club. Nearly everyone we know has a copy in or near their kitchen and while many of us turn to it for reference, we rarely come even close to scratching its surface.
Our hope is that this potluck club will help us build community, celebrate home cooking, and explore a treasured cookbook. To that end, there won’t be a lot of rules or exclusions. We encourage you to cook from whichever edition you happen to have.
Here in the Philadelphia area, we’ll gather on a quarterly basis to share a meal and our latest favorites from the JOC. For those of you who are further flung, you can still participate by cooking along with us and sharing your successes and frustrations via our Local Mouthful Facebook Group and by starting your own LM/JOC potluck group.
We’ll also be offering up some JOC content on the podcast itself. You can expect interviews with John Becker and Megan Scott (the JOC family members currently working on the next edition of the book), as well as opportunities to test unprinted recipes from that upcoming edition.
If you think you’d like to participate in the LM/JOC potluck club, please use the form below to sign up. We’ll be in touch soon regarding dates!
Next, we chatted about the meal kit trend and our perspectives on them. Do you subscribe to one? What do you think?
Recommended recipe! In this new occasional segment, we tell you about a new-to-us recipe that we think is worth making. First one up is this marinated celery recipe that Joy has made several times lately.
After that, we shared our methods for keeping cool in the kitchen when the weather gets steamy. Suggestions include. cooking early in the day, heading outside, using your slow cooker, batch cooking, and relying more on ready-made proteins that you can buy at the grocery store and then assemble into a meal.
