Cookbook Club

51eNepQoodLThis weeks edition of the Cookbook Club features the recipe for Wild Mushroom Lasagna on page 271.  As usual we mixed it up a bit to suit us!  Since work nights can be busy, instead of a lasagna we made a pasta bake using rotini!  Saves plenty of time but doesnt sacrifice taste.  Also, we added artichokes and spinach to kick up the flavor. ( We also used some extra onions and garlic, can you blame us? YUM!)



Remember to buy your cookbook and cook along with us!  Send your photos to mhoaglin@hoari.com or post them to our Machine Shed Facebook page.  Happy cooking! (and eating!)

Cookbook Club!

51eNepQoodLWelcome to month two of our Cookbook Club!  This month we thought it was perfect timing to feature a cookbook all about making meals fresh from your garden.

First up?  We made the author’s Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Salad with Artichoke Hearts found on page 135.  Why did we choose such a simple recipe?  Because not only is it delicious, but so versatile!  There are so many simple ingredients and variations of this salad. Garlic, tomato and basil

For example:  You could add prosciutto, you could serve it atop a chicken breast, you can add leafy greens or arugala, or even turn it into skewers for the perfect appetizer!  The list goes on and on.  Check out our Pinterest board for more great ideas.  Just like last month, pick you a copy of the cookbook at your local Machine Shed and cook along with us!  Be sure to share your pictures on Facebook or send them to mhoaglin@hoari.com.
