Hello all! I would like to give my friend a cookbook for her brithday this year. In the past, I have gifted her with the Modern Vegetarian Cookbook and a Nigella Lawson's Kitchen. This year, I wanted to send her Melissa Clark's In the Kitchen With a Good Appetite but there's a lot of meat in that cookbook and my friend is a pescatarian. The reason Clark's book appealed to me is that Clark lives in Brooklyn and so does my friend and she's also into the seasonal veg and CSA stuff. I looked at Smitten Kitchen but I was not wowed. My friend also works full time, has a toddler, and is due with her second any minute - so we are looking for fun, no fuss recipes for her growing family. Any recommendations? Also looking for good takeout places near Boerum Hill (I am going to send her a takeout gift certificate once baby arrives!)
