I am so happy to announce that our e-book, The BEST International Flavors You’re NOT Grilling With! is now available from Amazon.com.
This is the first e-book my co-author, Chef Danielle Turner of www.CookingClarified.com, and I have put together. We share a love of other cultures (and food) and as mothers we want to encourage our children to be curious about people and places around the world.
In this grilling e-book, we’re expanding our outreach to parents, particularly fathers who are the stereotypical “grill masters” in their families. By encouraging dads to experiment with new foods and learn about new cultures, we hope that both mom and dad (and grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) will model the behavior we hope children will adopt.
For more information about the e-book, check out KidCulture’s Grilling page or visit Chef Danielle’s website, CookingClarified.
If you’re convinced that grilling with global influences is something your family would enjoy, we hope you’ll buy our book and support our efforts.
Raise your hand if you need a pick-me-up. If you’re still recovering from:
- A seemingly endless winter;
- Stressful work load;
- Agonizing semester of school;
- Bad breakup;
- Good breakup
- Assorted life changes;
Take your pick of excuses to luxuriate in a 20 mouth-watering, decadent, and global donut/doughnut recipes presented to you in a special partnership between KidCulture and CookingClarified.com.
As moms, writers, and donut lovers, this is our April gift to you. Over the course of the Donut Project, I will be providing the global context for these fabulous donuts from around the world and Chef Danielle of Cooking Clarified will be testing and photographing the donuts.
This is a truly heroic effort on Chef Danielle’s part – but she assures me it will be worth the sacrifice that she and her family will be making!
We’re eager to hear your comments, entertain your suggestions for other donuts you love from across the globe, and hear about your donut adventures.
Although well-known in the United States (it even appears on the TGI Friday’s menu), French Onion Soup is actually an ancient soup that originated in France and is typically affiliated with the poor because it was cheap and simple soup to make.
This French Onion Soup recipe comes from Chef Danielle at CookingClarified.com.
Of all the soup’s we’ve covered so far, this is likely the only one my mother will make! French Onion Soup is one of her favorites. Bon appetite, maman!
Paula Deen would say no and throw a stick of butter at you for asking, but with so many children and adults fighting obesity, high BMI’s, and the health conditions that follow, it seems irresponsible to reject healthier fare.
On www.howtoboilanegg.wordpress.com, Chef Danielle reviews Secrets of a Skinny Chef by Jennifer Iserloh. I happen to know Chef Danielle loves her butter, heavy cream, and French recipes, so if she can find something to love, it’s worth a shot.
Here’s a snippet of Chef Danielle’s review:
Jennifer even takes on popular takeout items, eliminating the fat in Just Like Takeout Sweet & Sour Chicken, which is a perfect storm of protein, vegetables and grains.
The Skinny Chef also serves up recipes for French onion soup, Mexican bean dip, nachos, sesame chicken, enchiladas, chicken marsala, and lo mein.
