Cook Happy Project Week Ten

Happy Sunday to you.

This week my musings will be short and sweet, as I am juggling some other work projects.

Even so, I made time to unwind in the kitchen yesterday, preparing a slightly tangy, herb-rich batch of chicken salad, following Cristina Ferrare’s recipe in Big Bowl of Love (and cooking the chicken using the Whole 30 “perfect chicken” method) as well as an easy orange streusel cake that uses an entire navel orange, rind and all.

I have also been enjoying a new nonfiction book called Tastemakers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America, by Mayukh Sen. Each chapter focuses on a different pioneering woman cookbook writer, charting how she exhibited resilience and strength through her love of food and the culinary arts.

I can relate to these women. I find that cooking fortifies and strengthens me, especially when the going gets tough–partly why I chose to commit to this little blog project every week.

And so I will close with these lines, from Kristene DiMarco’s sung version of “I Am No Victim”:

I am no victim.
I live with a vision.
I’m covered by the force of love, covered in my savior’s blood.
I am no orphan.
I’m not a poor man.
The Kingdom’s now become my own, and with the King I’ve found my home.
He’s not just reviving,
Not simply restoring,
Greater things have yet to come.
Greater things have yet to come.

See links below for cookbooks where you can find the recipes.

Cheers to a passion for home cooking, the cultivation of resilience and faith, and greater things yet to come.
