I can’t believe I am done with another cookbook review! It seems like I just started making recipes from the April cookbook: Family Circle All Time Favorite Recipes. Maybe I feel that way because I was so far behind blogging that I DID only start making recipes from this cookbook or maybe it went so fast because I blogged about all the recipes for the review pretty much back to back in a two week time frame instead of over the course of the month. Anyways time to wrap up another cookbook review.
I thought Family Circle All Time Favorite Recipes was a great book. All of the recipes were tasty, easy to make, and used pantry staples. Totally family friendly. There are over six hundred recipes (so I didn’t even scrape the surface with this one) and has over three hundred pictures.
This cookbook gives you all the information you need. From prep and cooking times, to serving amounts, to nutrition facts; which I don’t know about you, but I love having this info. There are also great kitchen/cooking tips all throughout this book like what temperatures to cook meat and how to make a cookie either soft, chewy, or crispy depending on your tastes.
I would highly recommend this book. I had great success with all the recipes I tried and there are plenty more recipes I want to make.
These “Everything Cookies” were just that: “everything” you would ever want in a cookie. The ‘Monster Cookie’ to the extreme and totally easy to personalize and make your own depending on your favs and craves.
The meatballs in this Sweet-and-Sour Turkey Meatball dish were completely done right. We didn’t really care for the sauce/veggie mixture that topped these meatballs, BUT these turkey meatballs were extremely moist and full of flavor. Will totally make these meatballs again.
Mexican Chicken Salad- perfect for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow or whenever you want a chicken salad with great, not your ‘typical chicken salad’ flavor. And my tortilla crispers really make this Mexican Chicken Salad a fun tasty lunch time/party time food.
YOU. MUST. MAKE. THESE….. EASY, HEALTHY, YUM-IE GRANOLA BARS. NUFF SAID!
