6 Cookbooks We Love!

Six of our favorite cookbooks that have inspired us in the kitchen this year!

We’re officially in the season of good clean cooking, craving cozy comfort meals with a healthy twist. With the holiday season just behind us, it’s our favorite time to slow down, cook at home and mindfully consume our food. We turn to our stack of favorite cookbooks, again and again, to ignite inspiration in the kitchen and reboot our creativity. We thought it would be fun to share our top picks from this last year.


We have been following Tieghan Gerard from Half Baked Harvest for a while now and were so excited she came out with this new cookbook! On her blog, Tieghan is beloved for her beautiful photography and her crowd pleasing, comfort food recipes. HBH Super Simple takes what fans love most about Tieghan's recipes and distills it into quicker and easier dishes, including options for one-pot meals, meal prep, and even some instant pot and slow cooker recipes. Super simple!


This is one of our new favorites! With her charming and approachable style, Jessica Seinfeld whips up flavorful and robust plant-based meals that are loaded with easy-to-find ingredients, so you can add them to your routine whether it’s “every day, once a week, or just once in a while.“ We love the relatable stories she includes from her adventures in cooking vegan meals for her family, and the overall message of the book….More plants, please!


Here at Tuesday Foods, we are huge fans of Chef Yotam Ottolenghi, and his latest cookbook is BEAUTIFUL! The recipes are outstanding, the photography is stunning, and the stories he tells about food bringing people together are heart warming. Some of the recipes that are inspiring us - The Stuffed Eggplant in Curry, Coconut Dal and Spicy Mushroom Lasagne.


Andrea Hannemann's (aka Earthy Andy) simple mantra “plant over processed,” embodies the way she eats and feeds her family of five at home in Oahu, Hawaii. Packed with gorgeous photography and fresh wholesome recipes we love - from smoothies and bliss bowls to comfort foods and decadent desserts - this wonderful book shows you how easy it is to eat plant-based, and enjoy every bite!


Have you ever eaten at The Lost Kitchen, in Freedom Maine? We haven't had the pleasure, but after reading this New York Times article, we were so intrigued by Chef Erin French's story that we had to check out her cookbook for ourselves. Her restaurant attracts foodies from all over the world, and this gorgeous cookbook contains seasonal and flavorful recipes from the menu. She uses only fresh and local ingredients - herbs, vegetables, berries, and meat from farms in the area around Freedom. All of the recipes are geared toward the four seasons of the year, when the various ingredients are plentiful and at their peak.


We love the title...Super Natural Simple! It's a book full of whole-food, healthy vegetarian recipes that are simple to prepare, full of flavor, spice, color, and lots of good-for-you nutrition from the New York Times bestselling author and award winning blogger, Heidi Swanson. We have been following her blog, 101 Cookbooks for years and always love her recipes!
