I really enjoy cooking. I’m definitely not a “great” cook (yet) but I like to think that I can throw a meal together. I also like cookbooks and I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try.
So I’ve decided to embark on a rather daunting journey. The task that I have set for myself is to try my hand at reviewing a few cookbooks! (This will also be my first blog SERIES! Woo hoo!!) Here will be my criteria:
1. Practicality of recipes-- While it’s nice to dream about a perfectly stocked kitchen with every baking tool I may need at my fingertips, let’s get real. I live in a rental. I’m on a budget. So I will be basing my review on how practical the recipes really are.
2. Ease-- I would love to be able to devote whole days to whipping up fabulous delicacies in my rental kitchen. But again...not so realistic. I’m on a time crunch here, people!
3. Other cookbook-y stuff- If you read the intro to your cookbooks, usually they contain great tips and hints for cooking: Ingredient substitutions, hardware substitutions, tips for special techniques, etc. That’s one of my favorite parts about cookbooks. I learn so much from the intros!
4. My whims- Anything else I feel is pertinent to share with my adoring fan base.
Stay tuned for my first review!
