My favorite cookbook


posted by on cooking


The first time I went to Boston was for Christmas in 2008. Now three years later, I find myself going back this week for an early Christmas visit to see family.

Established in 1825, Brattle Book Shop is one of those places you must visit if you’re in Boston. I had no expectations when I first visited but that’s the beauty of a used book shop, you never know what you’ll come away with.

For me, I found my favorite cookbook so far. “Going Solo in the Kitchen” by Jane Doerfer.

Jane Doerfer - Going Solo in the Kitchen

I paid a rough $6 for the used copy and took it back home to Denver with me. This book was really the beginning for me when it came to portion control. Not only were the recipes easy and very editable (I cook for 2, not 1), but I still find myself recommending this book to friends who are just starting out cooking on their own or looking for a change in their diet. Who needs fast food with easy fixes like these?

I am anxious to get back to Brattle Book Shop to see what other recipe books I may find, but this one will always have a special place in my kitchen!
