I remember being newly married. I had some cooking experience. The kitchen was smaller, MUCH smaller than my mom’s and our budget was seemingly non-existent for much of anything. I had recipes from grandma and my mom scratched down on various pieces of paper and tried eagerly to replicate and be the bride who could cook my groom’s mother under the table. It didn’t work out quite like that, but host of the Food Network’s Quick Fix Meals, Robin Miller, is making it easier for future brides with her new book, The Newlywed Cookbook.
The title is deceiving because whether you’re about to tie the knot or your marriage is anchored, this cookbook offers more than 200 simple recipes and original meals for the happy couple. It’s a book that celebrates unions, food and love of both with recipes. This book is perfect for anyone looking for a quick dish, planning an intimate evening or a sit-down dinner party among friends.
I love that The Newlywed Cookbook is more than just recipes at a glance, this book offers ideas for breakfast in bed, easy dinners and picnic lunches. It keeps the relationship moving with candlelight dinners and hosting your own event at home. It’s truly a celebration of food in our lives and creating memories.
I love that Miller mixes it up from traditional holidays, we all are eager to host like:
- Thanksgiving (Sourdough stuffing with sweet Italian sausage; pumpkin pie with hazelnut crust)
- Valentine’s Day (Broiled lobster tails; asparagus with tomato vinaigrette, cumin basmati pilaf)
But Miller also incorporates celebrations that we share as traditions in a less formal environment like:
- Sunday brunch (Pecan-raisin sticky buns; spinach and cheese quiche with caramelized shallots)
- Super Bowl party (Goat cheese quesadillas with green chile salsa; four bean vegetarian chili)
Here’s a glimpse of one of the recipes in The Newlywed Cookbook:
This book has so much to offer to a bride-to-be. Don’t let the title keep you from enjoying these delightful recipes as they are fantastic for anyone.
