What I've been cooking in July

 You haven't seen much craft from me recently (although I have been crafting, just things I can't share yet) so I thought I'd share some of the things I've been cooking recently instead. 

I joined a new Facebook group where a recipe book of the month is chosen and members share the dishes  they have cooked from it. The book for July was "Vietnamese" by Uyen Luu, and after a few days of drooling over other members' creations, I knew I had to have a copy. 

I am totally in love with this book - I've already cooked quite a few dishes from it and as you can see, it is still bristling with sticky notes. Here are some of the things I've cooked (a couple of others were delicious but not so photogenic). I can't share any recipes with you because of copyright. although if you do a web search for the book and author, you will find that several websites have been given permission to share sample recipes. 

Slow Cooked Beef with Lemongrass, Star Anise and Root Vegetables

Instant Carrot and Kohlrabi Pickle 

Baked Ginger and Lemon Chicken 

The veg to accompany the chicken 

Spring Onion Oil (lovely on noodles) 

Sumer Tomatoes, Celery Leaves and Thai Basil 

The Lemon and garlic chicken was the star out of all these delicious dishes. All the dishes are easy to make and use easily obtainable ingredients. I'm hooked!

I love vietnamese food but never tried to cook it, I just head to Pho's restaurant and eat. Everything looks so yummy. Thanks for sharing/
