Cookbook of the Month: June 2010

For June I've chosen one of our newer cookbooks as the Cookbook of the Month -- Alton Brown's Good Eats: The Early Years.  Zach and I both have always loved watching Good Eats on the Food Network.  We enjoy Alton's crazy blend of science, humor, and of course, good eats.  We got the cookbook pretty much as soon as it came out.  It's not a typical cookbook though, organized into 'Meats', 'Side Dishes', 'Bread', 'Desserts", etc.  It's organized by episodes of the show, in chronological order.  It gives lots of background info about the episode and a lot of the science behind the ingredient/recipe.  This makes it a cookbook you really want to sit down and read.  

We are in the process of choosing our recipes for this month, but here are some recipes I've previously made, using as a resource, that are also in this book:

Southern Biscuits and Sawmill Gravy  This makes a great breakfast!

Good Eats Meatloaf  This is still our favorite meatloaf recipe, mostly for the tasty sandwiches it makes afterwards!
