Summer is finally upon (most) of us. Chances are you want to spend time in the lake, on a patio, or in the garden and NOT in the kitchen.

LET'S GET MINIMAL!




Their cookbook is out and I've seen lots of good reviews but I don't own it. There's a whole blog at our disposal too. This month will be a real challenge for me as I still don't cook from blogs much and I've only ever made one Minimalist baker recipe.

Not feeling this challenge? That's cool too. Choose your own adventure, and let us know how it goes! And if you've not joined in on a challenge yet, feel free to jump in. Use the #ppkcooks2016 hashtag to share your doings!

This is excellent, because I was just feeling rather silly for buying that beautiful Minimalist Baker cookbook and only making, I think, one thing? from it! (I can't even remember what I made, but it must have been something...)

Cool! I recently bought it and have made the sweet potato black bean corn avocado dip. Obvs not the actual name. It was good but a touch too sweet. I have all the ingredients ready for the spinach artichoke dip which is HUGE for me because I would normally never buy fake cream cheese. But I'm excited to try it. I also really want to make the lentil bolognese for a friend with anemia. This challenge will definitely encourage me. Thanks, Moon!

This will be an interesting one for me as well. I find myself pinning her recipes several times a week, but I've yet to try making one!

I look forward to seeing everyone's results from the book too.

Sheesh, I just realized how crazy this music video is! I was definitely going for the song name rhyme on this one - sorry everyone!

If anyone has any recipes from the blog to recommend, please share! I don't know where to start.

I'll try the chickpea bolognese with carrot noodles.

Just a note in case it's a concern for anyone: the blog is not vegan so you will come across recipes using chicken, eggs, etc. Most seem vegan though.
