Good (food) Reads for your Wednesday:
It’s another cold winter day here in the midwest and I don’t know about you, but weather like this calls for cozy sweaters, multiple cups of tea, and a few really decadent treats. Lately, I’ve been enamored by these brownies from the genius cookbook Date Night In. With rich bittersweet chocolate and an amazing salted peanut butter frosting, they’re perfect with a latte or a glass of red wine. I wasn’t sure I’d love a peanut butter frosting (it sounds almost too rich!) but I can’t get enough! It’s light, creamy, and a great contrast to the dense brownie. The entire cookbook (and the blog, Not Without Salt) are amazing and worth checking out. It’s got a permanent place on my kitchen shelf.
Everything in moderation is my goal for 2016. Since I’ve now posted two links in a row to not-exactly-light chocolate recipes, I’ll share something I’m excited to try tomorrow: Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins from Love and Lemons. Her food photography is out of this world! I love the color pop of the apple peels in the muffins.
Marcella Hazan, genius behind many of my favorite recipes (her tomato sauce is legendary), has a namesake bean! #goals. And if you haven’t made her famous sauce, the recipe is in another of my favorite cookbooks, Food52 Genius Recipes.
Is this why we all love food posts on social media? Food for (food) thought (via The Atlantic).
How Sweet Eats posted a recipe for Palomas With Salty Chili Sugar. Has anyone tried these? They look amazing. And the colors! I’m a sucker for pretty drinks.
