WOW, I can’t believe October is already here! I love this time of year… the weather, the holidays, the food. And that is why I am having such a hard time deciding on what cookbook to choose for this month. I have two books that I am equally excited about featuring and I have made one recipe from each book. Even as I type this I am still debating back and forth what to do.
(A few hours later) Ok I am back and I have decided to take a break from the Food Network stars and do a cookbook that isn’t so famous (I guess I will use a certain famous food Network stars’ book next month… can you guess who it is?)
So, any who, the book I decided to go with this month is 365 Dish A Day by Kay Halsey. This cookbook was a pleasant surprise one day when I was at the book store. It literally has 365 recipes AND (this is the most exciting part) pictures for almost ALL of the recipes! The actual book is very nice with it being hardback and a little bigger in size compared to other cookbooks; and did I mention that 95% of the recipes have color photos to go along with them! : )
I also liked this book for the array of recipes it has. From breakfast, to lunch to dinner to dessert, and everything in between. The only negative thing I would say about it is that the recipes are in no particular order. The book just starts with January 1st and goes from there. January 1st might be a dessert and January 2nd might be a salad or main entrée. This is where the recipe index comes in rather handy.
