Minimalist Baker is one of my all time favorite blogs, especially for approachable, tasty, plant-based recipes for a crowd. I tend to attempt brand new recipes whenever I have a houseful of company coming over, and Dana’s recipes are always guaranteed to turn out perfect and are a hit with our guests. I just got my hands on the new Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking before our May adventures and have been making everything out of it that I can since returning home. This week’s CSA box fit perfectly with recipes still on my to-make list, so in a throwback to the old days of cooking through cookbooks on the blog, this week is all about the simple and delicious recipes from this beautiful book.
