recipe list for molly wizenberg’s “a homemade life”

Have you read “A Homemade Life” by Molly Wizenberg (aka Orangette)? It’s a lovely book about Molly’s life experiences and how they relate to food and eating. I bought it a few years back at her book signing at the University of Washington. I’ve slowly read through it, chapter by chapter, each one ending with a recipe. I’ve added a few post-its on things I want to make, but for the most part I forget what recipes are in the book. She includes an index in the back of the book, but I find it hard to navigate. So I finally took the time to compile a recipe index. It’s been useful for me, so I thought I’d share, in case someone else might be having the same frustration with her book.

All of the recipes I’ve made so far from the book are fantastic. I wholeheartedly recommend you try the Stewed Prunes with Citrus and Cinnamon (page 49). I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “prunes? ewwwww.” But honestly. They’re just dried plums. And once softened, they’re so good atop yogurt. Try them.
