I don’t know if you’re tired of hearing me talk about my cookbook or not, but I only have a few more updates to go through so bear with me. It’s my first cookbook, so I can’t help it! With that being said I wanted to share with you some of the recipes from the book that you can find around the web. If we’ve all done our job of convincing you to buy the book, well then make sure you pick up a copy on Amazon or anywhere books are sold. I’m also currently hosting weekly giveaways on the blog for a chance to win a copy of the signed book along with a special prize each week in July. We’re on the second giveaway, and you still have time to enter this week. Check out these S’mores Eclairs to get all the details. Also, if you’re in the San Francisco area, I’ll be at the Williams-Sonoma in Union Square on Saturday July 16th from 12pm to 1:30pm doing a demo and signing books! Please come by and say hi! I hope to see you there!
Now onto the good stuff. My pal Elizabeth from Brooklyn Supper made the Banh Mi Sliders from the book and made them look amazing, and because she is too cool for school, she even used the same cute little flamingo picks that I used throughout. Bringing some of the book I created to life, one flamingo at a time.
Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen made the Western Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders from the cover of the book and she jazzed them up with pretzel buns. She used store-bought buns, but if you have the time and are feeling brave, there is a recipe for homemade pretzel buns in the book, right there readily available for you in the breads, buns and biscuit chapter. Talk about handy!
Lily from Kale and Caramel made the Caprese Sliders complete with the Rosemary Parmesan Focaccia and the Arugula Pumpkin Seed Pesto all from the book. She took things to a whole other level by adding fresh ripe peaches and a balsamic reduction. Daaaaang, Lily.
My New Orleans’ friends Beau and Matt from Probably This made the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffle Sliders because they’re awesome and these sliders are awesome and I think that you should try them for yourself. The sliders I mean. I added them to the book because they’re a riff off of my most popular post on the site, this Fried Chicken and Waffle Sandwiches.
Remember if you cook anything from the book, make sure to snap a picture and share it on social media (Instagram preferably) and tag it with @jonjon33 and #TheSliderEffect so I can see them! Happy Slider Making!
