Up Your Game in Both the Culinary and Pickleball Kitchen with Everything But The Kitchen Dink

by Rich and Laura Lynch

We took a deep dive into Everything But The Kitchen Dink written by Sherri Holzer and illustrated by Mary Navarro. This recipe book is a winning combination of Sherri's nutritional expertise and a passion for the sport of pickleball. Everything But The Kitchen Dink focuses on a Mediterranean diet food pyramid based on whole grains with fresh fruits and vegetables, then topped off with healthy proteins.

This eye-catching collection was written for new or seasoned cooks. Sherri starts with a dash of gratitude followed by the inspiration behind the book which includes the concept of cooking as self-care. Holzer has tips on how to read a recipe like a pro. She suggests that you carefully read the instructions twice and confirm that you have all the ingredients and tools that you will need before you start. She also shares a list of "my kitchen must-haves" while encouraging folks to read labels.

The game kicks off with a number of pickle recipes. The Cheesy Pickle Taquitos look and sound tasty. Everything But The Kitchen Dink is packed with tantalizing photos that we warn you will make you hungry. Sherri's directions are clear and concise and include short commentary about the recipes that in some cases talk about pickleball. Not only can one do a lot with pickles, but we learned that oats are also quite versatile. We want to try our hand at the Monster Breakfast Cookies made with oats and other wholesome stuff.

Appetizers, smoothies, heathier cocktails and mocktails are also options in a cookbook that will work from dawn to dusk. Everything But The Kitchen Dink is packed with flavorful meal ideas including chicken dishes, deserts, sassy salads, soup such as the Carrot & Coriander combo - one of our favorites. Perhaps steak bites might appeal to you or wraps that are sure to be a winner at your table. Everything But The Kitchen Dink has a wide range of choices to up your game in both the culinary and pickleball kitchen.

Everything But The Kitchen Dink is a unique Mediterranean lifestyle cookbook with a flavorful pickleball twist. It is deeply rooted in Sherri's Greek American culture which celebrates the joys of cooking and life. Whether or not you are a pickleball enthusiast this collection is a must have for people looking to improve their health with nourishing foods paired with the accomplishment of preparing meals at home.
