Lately I’ve been too busy to cook, which is usually something I look forward to at the end of a long day. The creative – often meditative – process of preparing a meal is how I wind down. But time is of the essence in the kitchen, which leaves me somewhat uninspired as of late.
Fortunately, my muse is a mini accordion folder of recipes ripped (literally!) from the pages of Everyday Food and divided into themes and categories. I’ve been a subscriber for 4 years or so and the simple concepts and mouthwatering visuals are easy to follow, and produce consistently tasteful, crowd-pleasing results. Plus a lot of times the ingredients are already in your cupboard! I’ve collected quite a stash over the years, which is added to each month when a new issue arrives.
