Recently I picked up Sophie Dahl's new cookbook. I haven't used any of the recipes yet but I love how short and sweet they are. The photos by Jan Baldwin are just really stunning. Normally I eat out a lot but I've been enjoying my kitchen lately, perhaps inspired by this beautiful book.
I've been experimenting with extremely simple dishes and it's made the task of cooking a lot less daunting. Sometimes when you cook for one, it's easier to buy a few of your favorite ingredients and mix them up together, to taste, instead of following recipes.
The other day I made this spring salad with English peas, radishes and watercress. I added a bit of creme fraiche, olive oil and salt and pepper. My sister teases me about my creme fraiche obsession. I try to add it to everything. It was delicious!
Hope you all have a lovely spring weekend!

Yum. My fav is creme fraiche on a scottish scone! Soooo good.
Love! I haven’t bought any of her cookbooks and I usually hate celeb-type stuff, but I find her very endearing…something about her has always drawn me in.
Jane, I totally agree! Daniella, that sounds so yummy!
Oooooh this looks so Springy and refreshing. I love it… and the photos too =)
Just bought the digital version of the cookbook for my iPad. Thank you for sharing!
I love Sophie Dahl’s cookbooks. The recipes are great, healthy, interesting yet not complicated. Plus, she is a wonderful writer with sense of humor, all in all I recommend both her cookbooks. The one Chelsea feature here, plus “Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights.” Both great cookbooks and reads, with SOUL!
love Sophie Dahl’s new cookbook. the photos on your blog are fantastic!
Would love that salad right now!
