This past month, I had a lot of fun using and reviewing a variety of cookbooks. Enough fun that cook book reviews may continue to show up occasionally, although not with the same frequency as last month! Here’s a quick overview of the four books I reviewed:
Title: Sensational Slow Cooker Gourmet
Author: Judith Finlayson
Review Summary: Very focused on convenience and does a good job of spelling everything out – plus it finally got me to use my crock pot.
Title: Eatingwell Serves Two
Author: Jim Romanoff
Source: gift from family
Review Summary: Some good pictures, clear instructions, but the whole “cooking for two” idea seems pricey and inefficient.
Title: College Cooking
Author: Megan & Jill Carle
Source: starting college gift
Review Summary: This cookbook has nice easy to follow directions, some tasty dinners, and my go-to, easy to make, dessert.
Title: Just Add Water
Author: Lauren Chattman
Review Summary: Nothing special about the book and the recipe I tried was proof that sometimes just adding water isn’t enough.
