Cookbook blitz!

by - January 28, 2020

I have been reading a lot of great cookbooks lately, but life is busy and time in short. I don't have the time or brainpower to give wholehearted reviews of these, but they are worth putting on your radar and at least ordering from the library.

Happy cooking.


The Healthy Family Cookbook: 100 Fast and Easy Recipes for the Whole FamilyThe Healthy Family Cookbook: 100 Fast and Easy Recipes for the Whole Family by Brittany Poulson MDA RDN CDE
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is awesome! The recipes are appealing everyday kinds of dishes that will please the whole family. There are nut-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian options, so you have a lot of options. I will work some of these into my rotation for sure.

One-Pot Cooking for Two: Effortless Meals for Your Sheet Pan, Skillet, Slow Cooker, and MoreOne-Pot Cooking for Two: Effortless Meals for Your Sheet Pan, Skillet, Slow Cooker, and More by Linda Kurniadi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book! It has lots of great ideas that I'll probably work into the rotation for myself, my husband, and my two year old. (Not quite cooking for 2, but I'm sure these recipes will suffice for the three of us!) Many of the recipes are low-mess, low-fuss, and that's really all I am looking for in a recipe these days.

Also I enjoyed the ease of use of the ebook format.

The Essential Cookbook for Men: 85 Healthy Recipes to Get Started in the KitchenThe Essential Cookbook for Men: 85 Healthy Recipes to Get Started in the Kitchen by Manuel Villacorta MS RD
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, I'm not a man, but I am a human being who eats food, so...

A good, straightforward cookbook with clear instructions, nice photos, and lots of delicious recipes that I intend to make. (And feed to my husband and son, who are men, so...)

I'm glad I got to read it.

The Vegetarian Cookbook: More Than 50 Recipes for Young CooksThe Vegetarian Cookbook: More Than 50 Recipes for Young Cooks by DK Publishing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is written for older kids, but it is appealing to me as an adult who, at heart, really just wants chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. Recipes are simple, the pictures are huge and inviting, and it is healthy food that will please the whole family.

The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook: Kid-Friendly, Plant-Based Recipes [Go Meatless One Day a Week—or Every Day!]The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook: Kid-Friendly, Plant-Based Recipes [Go Meatless One Day a Week—or Every Day!] by Jenn Sebestyen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Warning: do not read this book if you're already hungry.

Chock full of good ideas for tasty meat-free recipes that I'm fairly confident that my husband and son will eat, using ingredients that I have heard of and know where to buy. Plus, it's easy to read, nice to look at, and has very appetizing pictures. Putting this one on my Christmas list.
