Description

Aimee's rural homesteader upbringing, years working as a professional chef, and everyday life as a busy mom led to the creation of the hugely popular blog Simple Bites. Raising three young children with husband Danny, Aimee traded her tongs and chef whites for a laptop and camera, married her two passions-mothering and cooking-and has since been creating recipes with an emphasis on whole foods for the family table, sharing stories, tips and inspiring readers to make the family-food connection on the Simple Bites blog. Brown Eggs and Jam Jars is Aimee's long-awaited cookbook inspired by her urban homesteading through the seasons and the joyous events they bring. It embraces year-round simple food with fresh flavours from celebrating spring with a stack of Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes and pure maple syrup, to a simple late-summer harvest dinner with Chili-Basil Corn on the Cob and Lemon Oregano Roast Chicken. Autumn favourites include Apple Cinnamon Layer Cake with Apple Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Make-Ahead Currant Scones that are delicious topped with homemade Strawberry-Honey Jam with Orange Zest. Comfort meals include Chicken Leek Shepherd's Pie and Slow Cooker Cider Ham; homemade treats abound like Whole-What Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Orange Zest, Cinnamon Shortbread Bars with Dark Chocolate Ganache, Ice Cider Caramel Corn, and much more. Created for the family-minded home cook, Aimee shares over 100 recipes from melt-on-your-tongue maple butter tarts to tangy homemade yogurt that have a touch of nostalgia, feature natural ingredients, and boast plenty of love. Aimee's heart-warming stories capture everyday life in a busy family. In addition, she shares tips and advice on how to get the whole family involved in cooking from the ground up and enjoying homemade food. Brown Eggs and Jam Jars will inspire you to connect your family and food right where you are in life-from growing your own tomatoes to making a batch of homemade cookies. Enjoy your urban homestead!
