The Sprouted Kitchen: A Tastier Take on Whole Foods was released in 2012 and it is extremely representative of the blog’s style and voice.

Relish Decor Food 52 A New Way to Dinner Cookbook Review

Fast Review: Your new favorite book for seasonal meal plans– and we mean plans. This book takes you through every step of a meal plan: grocery shopping, repurposing add-ins, lunch options, and the best way to reheat your leftovers. The best part is that it’s all food you want to eat!

Food 52 was started by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs. Their goal was to bring people together from every corner of the world to share recipes, ideas, tips, tricks and support. These partners crafted this book to help others with a common problem. A common problem for many people is “what to make for dinner?” This can get especially hard during a tense work week, a busy evening with schlepping your children to practice, or just because there’s a mountain of laundry to do. Amanda and Merrill’s solution? After years of figuring it out— cook most of your food on the weekend! The biggest obstacle to eating well isn’t the cooking, it’s the organizing. In Food 52’s “A New Way to Dinner”, they’ve taken care of the organizing for you.

Cookbook Review: Food 52’s Mighty Salads

Fast Review: If you’re sick of boring salads? Food 52 is here to rescue you with over sixty mouth watering (anything but boring!) recipes to get you out of that salad rut.

Food 52 was started by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs. Their goal was to bring people together from every corner of the world to share recipes, ideas, tips, tricks and support. A few years ago, they started a column on the website called “Not Sad Desk Lunch” and this book is one of the results of that movement. These are not your everyday salads– but they could be (and likely will be thanks to the tantalizing food photography). The pictures inside will inspire you to branch out from the typical Cobb salad, motivate you away from the standard panzanella, and energize you to to step out of your comfort zone in exchange for a flavorful new world of mighty salads.
