Happy Friday! Today I’m linking up for the FINAL Friday Five with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?! Thank you ladies for hosting this link up for the past few years. I have met a ton of awesome bloggers through this link up.
Even though I’m not the best cook, I love cookbooks. There’s just something about thumbing through the pages, seeing all the images of food and earmarking recipes that you can’t wait to try. Here are five reasons why I think this cookbook should be added to your bookshelf.
This cookbook is over 300 pages – definitely the biggest cookbook that I own!
There are over 150 vegetarian recipes in this cookbook. This was a huge selling point for me because I’m trying to find new ways to cook vegeatable dishes, or just ways to try new ones.
I love that the author has not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 sections for quick meals. These three sections of the cookbook include ‘In the time it takes to set the table’, ‘Ready in twenty’, ‘On the table in half an hour’ and ‘Forty-minute feasts’.
It’s easy to think of ice cream, cookies and cake as typical sweet treats, but I love have the author incporates fruit as sweet treats. Apricots, apples, bananas and limes can all may super yummy treats
Since I’m a visual person, I hate when cookbooks don’t have a lot of photos of what the finished recipe should look like. Granted, the receipe will never look exactly like the photo, but it’s good to have some sort of idea. Also am I the only one that gets motivated to try a recipe if the photo is really pretty?!
What do you look for when purchasing a cookbook?
