What’s Cooking at WPL

It is time for another addition of Cooking at WPL. Our staff have been busy the better part of this summer in their kitchens, attempting yet again to make some delicious recipes that we can share with you. From easy desserts to savory dinners, we’ve had some success with out latest cookbooks, and hope that you will try them at home as well. Enjoy these delectable reviews, and remember if you have any questions, comments, or perhaps even suggestions on what to cook, please feel free to share.




Leisa: My Sunday dinner was Pork Tenderloin with Squash, Onions and Apple from Sheet Pan Suppers by Molly Gilbert. Two things I really liked about this recipe were that it was simple to divide in two and that the author offered seasonal vegetable choices as options. I did add some potatoes to the pan but otherwise followed the recipe. The result was very flavorful and I am looking forward to the leftovers.

Amanda: For all of you out there who have a sweet tooth but don’t want to over-indulge, the “Mug Cakes: 100 Speedy Microwave Treats To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth” by Leslie Bilderback is definitely for you! This cookbook features a variety of recipes (including adult ones that make use of booze) to make cakes in your favourite mug. I made the gluten-free cocoa-banana mug cake. The entire process took less than ten minutes, and made two cakes that tasted awesome! It was the perfect little snack to satisfy my sweets craving.

Angela: I made these scrumptious Date and Prune Squares from Canadian Living, Sweet & Simple. The recipes in this book were simple and delicious. Most of the ingredients would be items you already have in your pantry. The book is also filled with plenty of great pictures and I found that the Test Kitchen Tips were very helpful and informative!
