APRIL 2016 COTM - APRIL BLOOMFIELD MONTH

Allegra_K | Mar 31, 201610:18 PM

Welcome to the April 2016 version of the Cookbook of the Month (COTM), where we will explore the recipes of April Bloomfield's books, A Girl and her Pig & A Girl and her Greens. This should be a very thrilling month of great recipes and even better eating! Everyone who wishes to participate is encouraged to join in - we are a welcoming and fun bunch- so don't hesitate to take a place at the counter and rub elbows with the rest of the enthusiastic home cooks as we delve into this latest kitchen project!

Because of the way the chapters are organized, the reporting threads are divided in a slightly disjointed manner, so please ensure you are posting in the correct place. I tried to make as seamless as possible, but there may be a few recipes that appear out of order. Hopefully this method continues with camaraderie of cooking together and entertainment that goes along with it.
