Cookblog Club: “Tasty Eats at Home” Potluck

We decided to mix things up a little this month for our ladies book club and do a “cookbook club.” A cookbook club is the idea where instead of reading the same book, we all buy the same cookbook and each cook a recipe from it and bring it to the meeting, potluck-style. We made a little twist on this and instead of buying a cookbook, we thought we’d pick a blog, one that is up-and-coming. 🙂 We picked Tasty Eats at Home, which is written by Alta Mantsch, who also lives in the Dallas area! Her blog is gluten-free and super cute!

Here’s what we all made…


Jennie made a Kale Waldorf Salad (with strawberries instead of grapes). I have an obsession with kale right now, so I loved this.


She also made a Raw Summer Beet Slaw. This was SUPER good.


Ada made a Celeriac Soup with Curry Popcorn. Freshly popped popcorn = yum!


Jessica made a Cilantro-Lime Salmon Salad in Avocado Cups. Ha, the salad part was very refreshing. Can’t say the same about the unripe avocados, haha.



Katherine made a Texas Chili. Yes to those spices.


I made Shrimp Etouffee (the recipe calls for crawfish though)



Stephanie made a Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake. So moist and not overly sweet!


and Will, graciously made us ladies a sparkling sake (zipang) drink 🙂

Thanks to everyone for making such delicious dishes. And thanks Alta for sharing her wonderful recipes on her blog!
