TORI’S PICK OF THE WEEK:
I met Ree Drummond– aka The Pioneer Woman– at a blogging conference in 2011. Ree is an inspiration… she’s funny, smart, and a terrific cook. The Pioneer Woman is one of the few food blogs that regularly makes me laugh out loud. She’s got a great sense of humor. And if all that weren’t enough, she happens to be a genuinely nice person. Foods From My Frontier is Ree’s second cookbook. It’s not a kosher cookbook, but it sure is a delicious one! To learn more about the book, check out this post: Ree’s Lemon Blueberry Pancakes.
The Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder is fun, colorful, and simple to use. The unique “ratchet” grinding design is perfect for right or left handed users. The ceramic grinding mechanism is adjustable from fine to coarse. It’s easy to fill, easy to operate, and comes in a rainbow of colors.
Tracing the introduction of coffee into Europe, Robert Liberles challenges long-held assumptions about early modern Jewish history and shows how the Jews harnessed an innovation that enriched their personal, religious, social, and economic lives.
Okay, I’ll admit I’m a peanut butter freak. I love the stuff! But we all know it’s pretty high in fat, so I enjoy it in moderation. That’s why I love PB2! I add a tablespoon to my morning smoothie for a yummy peanut butter flavor without all of the fat and calories. I’ve even blended it into soups. It’s terrific! Did I mention it’s OU kosher certified?
If your family is football obsessed like mine is, you’ll love these super cute football-themed dishes from Boston Warehouse. Perfect for noshing in front of the big screen!
I am totally engrossed in this book by Tom Standage. More than simply sustenance, food historically has been a kind of technology, changing the course of human progress by helping to build empires, promote industrialization, and decide the outcomes of wars. Standage draws on archaeology, anthropology, and economics to reveal how food has helped shape and transform societies around the world, from the emergence of farming in China by 7500 b.c. to the use of sugar cane and corn to make ethanol today. An Edible History of Humanity looks at the history of humankind through the lens of food. It’s a fascinating read.
