3 No-Cook Recipes for The Inspired Home

Thank you to the International Housewares Association for partnering with us on this blog post! We were compensated for our time and were thrilled to be able to keep the products we used in creating new recipes for the accompanying article. As usual, all opinions expressed are our own. 

This past Sunday was pretty fun! We walked over to our goddaughter's house to visit in the morning and then stayed home and avoided the heat (it's almost painful, at this point, right?).

We prepared food all afternoon and made 3 new dishes: Tostaguac, Composed Gazpacho, and Date and Peanut Marzipan Candy Bars all without turning on the oven or heating up the stovetop.

Loved seeing our friends and then getting to be creative and have dinner all set -- and no grilling or sautéing was required. We have the recipes HERE for you to check out.

Our Second Cookbook! The Chubby Vegetarian: 100 Vegetable Recipes for the Modern Table

We're finishing up the last details this summer -- we have a few more photographs to take and another round of editing to finish up, but we're over the moon about how good the current draft looks thanks to the help of Susan Schadt Press and her amazing crew.

Can't wait for you to see what we came up with for you this time! We named it after the blog because it reflects the way we eat everyday and includes some of our favorite recipes, with a focus on cuisines from all over the world. We love Southern food, but when we're figuring out (probably at the last minute) what to make for dinner or for a party, we usually start thinking about a region we want to highlight and go from there.

We have a bunch of fun opportunities in the works to share good food and celebrate the book release in the fall.

Our first book, The Southern Vegetarian, is available on amazon, and the Kindle version is only $4.99 now; if you've been thinking about getting a copy, now's a pretty good time, right?
