These worn and faded notebook pages came from my husband’s grandmother’s recipe book given to us by an aunt whom I think had hopes of us recreating the recipe book with photos to match. A daunting task! Some blank pages were crumbling but I was able to salvage several which I scanned and added the Voyager texture from Flypaper Textures with the idea in mind of incorporating it into my blog somehow and -maybe a cookbook? The dish shown is a recipe adapted from Heidi Swanson’s newest book- Super Natural Every Day. Heidi’s book is loaded with delicious recipes that are not only healthy, but easy to prepare. Being a food photographer, I have always admired the simplicity and elegance of her photographs. In fact, I was drawn to the book’s cover-an antique blue and white bowl brimming with White Beans and Cabbage, the recipe I have adapted here. I have a collection of English blue and white china, but decided to go more rustic with the dish. I had spinach on hand substituting it for the cabbage in the recipe.
