Our Sweet Basil Kitchen: Fresh Twists on Family Favorites with Recipe Mashups and Unique Flavor Combinations (Hardcover)
"This is home cooking with a twist of whimsy and a dash of Paula Dean decadence." - Booklist A pinch of the North and a dash of the South Oh, Sweet Basil bloggers Cade and Carrian Cheney blend their Pacific Northwest and Southern roots in these delicious new twists on family favorites Carrian grew up in the Pacific Northwest and prefers garden-fresh produce, natural ingredients, and healthy eating. Cade, raised in South Carolina, loves all things Southern--particularly if it involves a grill. Together, they have collected more than 100 recipes that combine their love of fresh ingredients with unexpected flavor combinations and mashups of tried-and-true family favorites that will take your cooking to the next level. The Cheneys believe that "Cooking isn't just about the food, it's about the hands that created it. For us, that means sharing a little Southern comfort and a little farm-to-table. But wherever you are and whatever flavors you are sharing, remember that good food and good people make for a good life." All the recipes are exclusive to this cookbook.
Cade and Carrian began the Oh, Sweet Basil blog in 2008 as a way to share their unique recipes and to promote their philosophy that spending time together in the kitchen is about more than the meal. As the parents of three children, they have found that cooking and eating together as a family helps them stay involved, try new things, create memories, and develop stronger bonds. Cade also works as a marketing director for a physical rehabilitation facility in the Rocky Mountain region. Visit them at OhSweetBasil.com.
