We've fallen in love with the cookbook "The Forest Feast, Simple Vegetarian Recipes from My Cabin in the Woods" by Erin Gleeson. Published by Abrams, the watercolors and photography are worth the price of the book. We found our copy at Anthropologie. Sure, we could have bought it for less somewhere else, but we purchased ours at Anthro (Dallas). We feel that it's worth the extra cost to soak in the lovely inspiration that Anthro always has to offer.
What we discovered: These recipes are easy and economical. It doesn't take a huge spice cabinet and expensive ingredients to create an impressive dinner party. Your feast begins when you open the book; the watercolors and gorgeous spreads in this literary treasure are so beautiful!
Using Erin's recipes, we put together our Summer Dinner Party menu:
Our menu was a huge success!
