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

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

Baking Yesteryear by B. Dylan Hollis, a review

I decided to keep going with my reviews of new(ish) cookbooks. Obviously, I’m still rolling through those published in 2023. I’m not sure the featured book today made any “best of” lists, but it should have. I laughed out loud from page one.

I love nostalgia and I love retro and I love a good . . . → Read More: Baking Yesteryear by B. Dylan Hollis, a review

Yogurt and Whey by Homa Dashtaki, a review

I’m still working my way through some of the best cookbooks of 2023 (at least according to Bon Appetit).

Most of my reviews came from a massive library check-out. My bad that I requested all the books at once. I literally was walking out of the library balancing eight massive cookbooks. (When did they do . . . → Read More: Yogurt and Whey by Homa Dashtaki, a review

A Cookie a Day for Advent, a holiday cookbook review

A little departure today from my “Best of 2023” cookbook reviews (and to kick off the holiday season)…

Every year, I’ve mailed an advent calendar to our nieces in Colorado. I’m honestly not sure when I started but the eldest is a senior in high school this year so I’m . . . → Read More: A Cookie a Day for Advent, a holiday cookbook review

Love is a Pink Cake by Claire Ptak, a review

Harry & Megan may have made Ptak more famous, but her cookbook is worthy of a perusal. I did not make a pink cake but I did try her Big Sur Cookies. . . . → Read More: Love is a Pink Cake by Claire Ptak, a review
