In the name of expanding our repertoire of weeknight meals, I thought it would be fun for the FATKitchen to experiment with reader recommendations. Every so often, I will build our weekly menu plan around recipes from a featured cookbook or blog.
Our first weekly feature comes from Malka who suggested that I look at Rose Reisman’s cookbooks. Its been ages since I pulled out my collection (I have 4!!) of Reisman’s recipes so this was a perfect place to start. We flipped through Weekday Wonders which promises quick-to-prepare meals that are also delicious and picked out 10 recipes that we haven’t tried before, but should.
Now that we have narrowed our chosen recipes to 6 and stocked our fridge and cupboard with ingredients, I look forward to a week of shorter prep times on some great looking dishes! Check The Fat Project’s Instagram feed (@thefatproject) to see how the meals turn out this week – and every week!
