Welcome to the Godless Cook! In this blog I hope to explore the often ignored intersection between cuisine, and atheism. We'll delve into the subterranean world of atheist recipes such as atheist food-cake, and the proper preparation and cooking of babies. Okay, just kidding. Actually 90% of my posts will have nothing to do with atheism or politics, and simply be reviews and photos of recipes. However, I'm also an enthusiastic news and political junkie, as well as an atheist who enjoys friendly debate and discussion so I'm occasionally going to have some non-food posts. Consider this fair warning.

While I've done a lot of improvisational cooking in the past, I'm cooking my way through a couple of different cookbooks right now, and most of the recipes that I try will be out of those.
First and foremost it is fellow Minnesotan Lynne Rossetto Kasper's book "How to Eat Supper" which is a wonderful book that I highly recommend amateur cooks purchase, all the recipes I've made from it so far have been fairly easy, delicious and healthy.

Secondly I've been baking bread and making desserts out of the excellent "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" by two other fellow Minnesotans Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg. With it I've been making wonderful bread, and hardly a day goes by where I'm not either throwing a fresh loaf in the oven, or mixing up another batch to store in the fridge.

With that I'll move on to the recipes.

I took your advice and purchased your recommended books. Hopefully I'll get to dig into them soon and join you with some experimenting in the kitchen and compare notes. Bon appetit!
