Roasted Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe Bountiful Cookbook: Vegetable and Fruit recipes from WhiteOnRiceCouple.comThe birth of our Bountiful cookbook wasn’t as painful as we had originally thought. Aside from a few weeks of never ending dirty dishes, the whole journey was creatively liberating and fun. Thanks a million to all you guys and gals and so many nice cooks, bloggers and friends out there who spread the good cheer.

Seeing what everyone is cooking from the book reminds us why we love what we do so much. Those late nights in the kitchen recipe testing, developing, editing, writing and washing dishes makes it all worth it when someone shares their favorite dish that they made from the cookbook.

Our goal was to make the recipes, approachable, non-fussy, delicious and make a vegetable or fruit the hero. We’re always looking to incorporate more vegetables into our meals, so writing this cookbook helped us do more of it on a daily basis. And we’re sharing some Bountiful recipes with you that amazing bloggers have shared. And some of them are hosting a giveaway of the book too!

A simple and favorite lunch is our roasted broccoli grilled cheese sandwich. Pair it with a bowl of chicken soup or tomato soup and what you have is a meal that everyone in the family will love. The roasted flavor of the broccoli and melted cheese is almost like eating a broccoli/cheese soup, but even better. It’s sandwiched within two crispy slices of bread. Now try to dip it in some tomato soup. It’s really to die for!

Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod made this Roasted broccoli grilled cheese and is sharing the recipe on her blog.

Tracey from Shutterbean perfected our Braised Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Parmesan. Love the photo.

Julie from The Little Kitchen made our Baked Eggs in Tomatoes. It’s beautiful! Head over there for the recipe.

Kelly from Just a Taste is a egg rolling master! Check out our Kale and Chicken Egg Roll recipe that she mastered.

Elise from Simply Recipes added kale to our Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Parmesan. Brilliant.

So there you have it, a sampling of some recipes from Bountiful. Make them all for lunch or dinner!

And come visit us at our next signings in New York City, Seattle, Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Melbourne, Australia! Link is here.

Happy Weekend,

diane and todd

Can’t believe it’s been about three years since we’ve gone apple picking. Normally every October we venture up to the San Ynez Valley to make a day of gigantic-pumpkin searching and apple picking. And when we say gigantic, we really do mean the really huge pumpkins that you can use as a seating stool for […]

Sunshine and blue skies filled our whole day today and you’d never know that we had a huge downpour of rain yesterday. Our weather gets a little wacky sometimes, which alternating days of hot & dry Santa Ana winds at ninety hot-degrees, followed by a day of downpour rain and then a day of gorgeous […]

I can’t take it anymore! I give in and am finally going to embrace the fact that autumn is here. I’ve been trying to hold out, desperately clinging to summer’s fruit and veggie bounty. Pushing aside any thoughts of pumpkins and other winter squashes, stews, roasts. All of that delicious autumn comfort goodness.

Lamingtons: A Special Australian Sponge Cake & A Trip

by Todd & Diane September 20, 2013

When we first laid eyes on a lamington, it was like whoa. Double whoa. A sight for sore eyes. How is it that you can ignore a wonderfully tender sponge cake (sometimes butter or pound cake), dipped in chocolate and covered with shredded coconut? You can’t and you shouldn’t. If a lamington was filled with […]

We were in the dead of summer heat here over these past few weeks. Well, for us Southern California coastal folks, anything that hits 95 degrees is a reason to complain about it being too hot. Why is it that Summer decided to arrive now? In September? Maybe this is a good thing, all this […]

We’re still squeezing out more tomatoes from the garden and we’re not likely to be giving up Summer at least until next month. And so far, we’ve had a blast this Summer with the […]

Sriracha Roast Chicken

I have to admit, Diane is brilliant at times. I should be a good man and say all the time, but then everyone would know I’m either blinded by love or kissing ass. It seems like we are roasting a whole chicken about every other week. I put a lot of care into the juiciness […]

Fig Bruschetta Recipe and Love of Fig Photographs

by Todd & Diane August 12, 2013

I vividly remember a conversation I had with a fellow food photographer/food blogger a few years ago about figs. Food talk with fellow food bloggers? I didn’t intend for this an “f” alliteration, but doesn’t it sound like it could be the title of a food column? Yes? Anyways, I’ll get back on track about […]
