We recently suggested revisiting your cookbooks as a way to reset your dinnertime routines. The resulting listener conversation after that episode was so lively and animated…clearly, we’re not the only ones would could use some inspiration in the kitchen. So we decided to devote more episodes to talking about food!
In Episode 112 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha share 7 cookbooks they’re loving right now. Their recommendations span new cookbooks to old classics, entrees to desserts, plus an Indian cookbook that reminds Asha of the food she grew up with. Listen, then head straight to the bookstore, library, or your own shelf of cookbooks!
