Two amazing cooks – Mary Constantine, Food Writer for the Knoxville News-Sentinel and Jennifer, the Midday Host for Knoxville’s B97.5 have joined forces to share their love of all things food and cooking as the Sisters of the Skillet.
One of the things the Sisters of the Skillet provides is a newsletter with recipes and other cooking-related information. They also give away culinary items as well as the cookbooks Mary gets from publishers to review.
And they have one for the readers of TheMommyhood.com…The Crabby Cook by Jessica Harper.
I looked through it and it’s my kind of cookbook. 1. I’m definitely crabby about cooking. 2. She fully understands picky eaters. 3. She’s FUNNY! She has stories and cooking survival tips that go along with her recipes.
I think if we knew each other we would probably be friends. Especially since she is more of a cook, and I am more of an eater (who likes to laugh). And this woman is one heck of a mompreneur with a best-selling children’s book and a bunch of children’s music CDs. Oh and she’s an actress who has worked in movies with Tom Cruise and in the theater with Al Pacino. I looked her up on IMDB and there is a picture of her with Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. Wouldn’t you love to hang out in a kitchen with this woman and listen to her tell stories?
Anyway, I haven’t made anything from this cookbook, so I can’t speak to the recipes personally, but I have to admit there are several that look good (and easy) to me. And I am all about looking for the humor in anything. For example, in one of her recipes for grilled fish it says “It takes a grillage.”
To enter leave a comment on this blog post and tell us why you are a crabby cook. The contest end Tuesday August 8th at midnight EST.
Have a great day!
