A Basket by the Door is about fostering connection, community and good old-fashioned country hospitality as much as it is about recipes and the food that brings us together to eat. Cooking for someone is empathy made edible and is a double gift of time – your time to relieve some of their time – and time is one of the greatest gifts you can give.

Whether it’s an aromatic chicken pie made from scratch, or trio of freshly made dips and homemade lavosh biscuits or a sturdy picnic cake, delivered in a basket, for afternoon tea on the riverbank, there are recipes and ideas here to cover every occasion.
The MIND Diet Plan & Cookbook that is designed to help people reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia through cooking wholesome, simple and nourishing meals. The ‘diet’ itself is a mash-up of the Mediterranean and DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and was rated the #4 best overall diet on the 2019 U.S. News & World Report’s annual diet report, with the downfall being a lack of resources and recipes.
The research behind this eating style, which is all-inclusive and balanced (no cutting out food groups or restricting) is promising, and there aren’t many resources available. The link between nutrition and food and brain health is strong, and we can make a big impact on our brain health by making subtle changes in our diet, which is explained in detail in the book along with meal plans, shopping and prep lists and 77 amazing recipes like Moroccan Chicken Tagine, Maple Butternut Squash Soup, Kale Caesar Salad with Crispy Chickpeas, Chocolate Avocado Pudding and Shakshuka with Poached Eggs. It’s really an amazing cookbook overall because of it’s balanced, attainable approach to eating well and DELICIOUS recipes.
Austin chef Eric Silverstein’s Peached Tortilla restaurant is one of my favorites. I first tried their Pad Thai and Banh Mi Tacos in the Austin airport and have been hooked on his Asian/Southern/Texas cuisine ever since. The cookbook has all the fan favorites from his restaurants plus great stories of Eric’s personal life and business career which he started as a single food truck. There is also a Noodle Glossary and a very descriptive guide to navigating your local Asian food market. This guy definitely has a passion for what he does and it shows up loud and clear in this fantastic new cookbook.
