Cookbook Review: More is More by Molly Baz

Note: I am still reviewing 2023 cookbooks until a “best of” for this year comes out.

Since I started this cookbook review journey, I’ve come across a lot of foodie influencers. I hate to use that word “influencer” but it fits. These are people that have hundreds of followers, podcasts, YouTube channels, subscription only digital . . . → Read More: Cookbook Review: More is More by Molly Baz

Cookbook review: Half Baked Harvest Every Day

It’s been a while since I reviewed a cookbook. Hope you haven’t been waiting with bated breath.

There’s a higher end boutique that I visit (mostly to browse or look on the sale rack). They carry some cool cookbooks and I always peruse through them and then snap some photos of the covers so I . . . → Read More: Cookbook review: Half Baked Harvest Every Day

Onion Dip-Fire Crackers

I never have all the ingredients needed in the house when we decide to have a “snack night” especially once I get past the holidays.

Sunshine on a Plate for La La Land

From the get-go, let me confess, I don’t usually seek out musicals. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them. I’ve seen Cats at least four times (should I even admit to that?). Jesus Christ Superstar is a nostalgic favorite for me and my sister. I can sing along with most of Les Misérables.

Not Undercooked Risotto

I’m hosting the Dec/Jan round for Cook the Books. Cook the Books is a group of like minded culinary readers who obsess with foodie fiction and non-fiction alike. Well, maybe it’s not an obsession for all of us but I certainly could find a bit to relate to in Dan Adhoot’s Undercooked: How I Let . . . → Read More: Not Undercooked Risotto

Big Heart Little Stove by Erin French

As I started reading the intro to Big Heart Little Stove by Erin French, I kept thinking, “I know her. I know her story.” Yes, sometimes I live under a rock, but I started thinking back. Did she write a memoir? Did I read it? I finally decided that I had seen a news story . . . → Read More: Big Heart Little Stove by Erin French
