A winner of a cookbook and a cookbook winner

Marinated balsamic, maple & garlic tempeh.

Here are a couple more things we've cooked from from The Oh She Glows Cookbook. Actually, my husband cooked them so I don't know if he followed the recipe or improvised. I found the marinated balsamic maple and garlic tempeh tasty, but a little too vinegary for me.

Empowered noodle bowl with Thai peanut sauce.

The empowered noodle bowl comes with a choice of two dressings — Thai peanut or orange-maple miso. I can only vouch for the Thai peanut — so far.

There are still so many interesting recipes to try, I'm sure you'll be seeing more as I make my way through the book.                                              



When I reviewed Angela Liddon's new cookbook, The Oh She Glows Cookbook, I offered a giveaway copy of the book to one lucky reader. I used the random number generator to pick a winner, and the the comment selected belonged to Rebecca F. The book is on its way to Becca, and I hope she enjoys it as much as I do. Doing a giveaway like this always makes me a little sad because I wish I could send a book to each person who left a comment. Thanks to everyone who read the post and entered. If you still haven't made the recipes provided or linked to in my review (available here), I recommend them as a great introduction to the cookbook.

  2. Orange-miso sounds like an interesting dressing flavor for that kind of bowl, but I'd probably go for the Thai peanut too.

  3. They both look yumful...the tempeh especially so in a sandwich with some rustic Italian bread I think. :)

    1. The more I look at the tempeh, the more I think it's time to make it again. In a sandwich would be excellent!

  4. The tempeh looks super good! I follow recipes for the most part but adjust to personal preferences. Like if a recipe calls for an ingredient I'm not too fond of, I'll replace it with something else or reducing the amount of salt or soy sauce kind of thing. :-)

    1. Yes, that's what I do, too, unless I'm testing recipes for a cookbook. Good recipes hold up when you adjust them to preference — that's what cooking is all about, right?

  6. Congratulations to the winner Becca! I also received the cookbook and still have a review to do! Thank you for your honest and helpful cooking notes! I just made her marinated tempeh tonight and halved the balsamic vinegar and doubled the maple syrup & garlic cloves - it was tasty when I adjusted the measurements. I can’t wait to bake them tomorrow, they are sitting in the fridge now. I saw the noodle dish recipe but I would probably like the Thai peanut one! :)
