If there’s one thing I love, it’s finding a new cookbook I love. And boy, do I have one.
You guys know my friend Julie from Table for Two, right? Her cookbook – Dinner for Two – just came out and I am already in love.
- Her pictures are amazing. Everything looks like it is jumping off the page and directly onto my kitchen counter. (Is there a way to actually make this happen?)
- Everything looks SO good! I had a hard time choosing what to make first.
- Just the right size meals for a few people? Sign me up. I do love leftovers, but sometimes it’s nice to have just enough for a meal or two – not twenty.
So, I’m probably the only person that has never been to P.F. Changs, yes? Have you? Has everyone? I’m pretty sure they all went without me.
We don’t have one anywhere near us, but I have heard of the place. And apparently, their chicken lettuce wraps are one of the most popular items. Since I can’t compare this recipe to those, I’ll just say this: this was my first time ever making chicken lettuce wraps like this at home, but it will not be the last.
I love having the shitake mushrooms in this mix – I always forget about them!
Sorry, shitakes. I should use you more often. They’re so tender and light, and they make the perfect addition to the chicken and seasonings.
The chicken mixture was really simple in terms of ingredients but so flavorful. It was nice to not have an ingredient list a mile long or have to buy anything totally obscure at the grocery store to make these.
If you’re looking for a new cookbook with easy to follow recipes and fantastic photography, check out Dinner for Two! You won’t be sorry.
