Moms do love to entertain, and if no-stress hosting is what you’re after, Dining In: Highly Cookable Recipes will help simplify your kitchen routine.
Roman’s “highly cookable” recipes, as she refers to them, prove that easy, no-fuss dishes don’t have to lack flavor or ingenuity, or require a ton of time.
While you’ve seen her famous Chocolate Chunk Shortbread Cookies all over the internet, we’re also salivating over some of her savory options, like Fried Eggplant With Harissa and Dill and Anchovy-Butter Chicken With Chicken Fat Croutons.
Alison in Action
I love Alison’s work but if you’ve never had a chance to see her in action this is as good a time as any to get yourself familiar with the way she handles the kitchen.
This is a great recipe from the cookbook: skillet chicken with crushed olives and sumac and you can see Alison cook it from beginning to end.
This is one of my husband’s favorite meals:
Looks great, right? Well, let me tell you, it tastes even better.
Give it a try!
About The Book: Dining In
Taylor on Amazon is a fan, “I’m a 24-year-old woman whose always been able to find whatever recipe I wanted online, so I don’t really buy cookbooks. Truly, this is my first one. But something about Roman’s approach to “highly-cookable” food and rich flavors really appealed to me, and at $15 for a beautiful hardback, I thought why not. I have not been disappointed. The recipes feel fresh and exciting, but never unduly complicated. The day I got it, I cooked for a group of friends, and the anchovy butter chicken still gets love to this day. I’d grown tired of cooking at home, and Dining In made me incredibly excited about it again.”
