I’ve been trying to healthify my life but also make “better” junk food. When looking for some new inspiration I came across Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar. I was drawn in by the promise of simple, nostolgic recipes & this book definitely has some mixed in there. Keep reading to check it out!
For anyone addicted to crack pie®, compost cookies®, and cake truffles, here are their savory counterparts—such as Kimcheezits with Blue Cheese Dip, Burnt Honey–Butter Kale with Sesame Seeds, and Choose Your Own Adventure Chorizo Burgers—along with enough make-at-home sweets to satisfy a cookie-a-day habit. Join Christina and friends as they cook their way through “weaknights,” sleepovers, and late-night snack attacks to make mind-blowingly delicious meals with whatever is in the pantry.
For me personally- this wasn’t what I was expecting. Many recipes feature things like crackers, cereal, chips etc. while I was looking more for a made-from-scratch view. I did find this book helpful to mix up some seriously unique ideas & think this would be amazing for college-aged & sleepovers. Many of the ingredients are found in many American homes but if you’re hoping to lighten them up…well that will be tough!
