Infuse by Eric Prum and Josh Williams

Happy day before Friday! How has your week been going? Almost ten days and counting until my children go back to school! I'm just busy around here, getting them ready, organizing and painting away at my daughter's dresser. It's primed and painted, except the drawers, I'm painting and she's helping me stencil them today. The dresser is white lacquer with the drawer fronts painted in either a dark peach or sunset color, and stenciled with a white pearl. I want to paint the drawer knobs, but they seem to have gotten lost as well in the move, I'll find them.

Today I am excited to share with you, a wonderful book (affiliate link) Infuse: Oil, Spirit, Water  by Eric Prum and Josh Williams. It's fast becoming one of my favorite cookbooks by far. What I love most about it is, the recipes are super easy to follow, most of the ingredients you most likely have on hand, and while the photographs are mostly minimalistic, some with only three ingredients, they are all beautiful, almost zen like. Taking away the chaos of a complicated recipe, and making something pure to enjoy!

This Summer, I have for the first time, enjoyed flavoring my water, with not just lemon, but mint and cucumber. In the cookbook, there is a Grapefruit-Jalapeno infused water recipe I want to try, as well as Lavender Meyer Lemon Mint tea! Sounds lovely, doesn't it?!

I enjoy entertaining with mixed drinks, and I've seen on Pinterest, and have pinned similar recipes to try, but haven't quite gotten around to making them yet, but my own liquors for the Holidays or whenever. The two that were listed in 'Infuse', that caught my attention, were homemade "Overnight Limoncello", and "Coffee Liquor". So Simple and easy to make, I don't know why I haven't made them sooner.

Next up on the list is Peach Bourbon!

Also this Summer we've been eating more green salads with romaine, kale and spinach. There is a page dedicated to Vinaigrettes. Again, so simple and easy to make, I am never buying store bought dressing ever again. For the Pizza Bianco recipe I posted, I made this simple RedPepper Chili Oil, since both my brother and husband like to spice things up. It really takes the flavor of the pizza up a notch!

Some other recipes include:
-Kale and Apple Salad with Orchard Vinaigrette
-Greek Vinaigrette
  -Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry Infused Maple Syrup

Three Things I liked about this book:
  • Simple, easy and quick recipes to follow. No complicated steps or ingredients, I don't know the names of. Most ingredients I already had on hand.
  • While this book is in the top 10 books for Cocktails and Mixed drinks, there are also some wonderful recipes for flavor infused oils (vinaigrettes), waters and teas.
  • The photographs are bright, clean and although they are minimalistic, they are very beautiful pictures, that are easy to look at.
