Well here is a recap of all of the recipes for August’s Cookbook Of the Month. Overall I liked Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade Cooking 3. All of the recipes I tried were easy to make, with ingredients that are easily found at any grocery store. Also the book tells you specific name brand ingredients; which of course you can use the brand you like but I thought it was very helpful to look for a specific brand label when I shopped. I also like the fact that the book was divided into several categories (Italian, Mexican, Asian, Soul food, etc) and at the beginning of the book there was a section that explained different foods that were common ingredients in the different styles of cooking. Another plus for this book was the abundance of pictures (gotta love them).
So there you have it- 3 days into September and I am finally done with all of August’s recipes. And I would say overall things went great or were rather tasty depending on how you look at it!
