Cookbook 132: The Jewelled Kitchen

The Jewelled Kitchen by Bethany Kehdy is a stunningly beautiful cookbook.  I bought it because it looked so beautiful and I was intrigued by the recipes inside.  Sadly, despite it being beautiful, the recipes did not work for me the way I hoped and it was a tiny bit disappointing.  I think that as I …

Cookbook 131: Pasta

I found this in a box of stuff Scott’s parents had given him, which had been sitting in the garage for some time.  Hamlyn’s CookSmart, Easy Cooking Great Eating, Pasta, seems to be out of print in the edition I have (here), but I believe the first one I linked to is more or less …

Cookbook 127: The International Garlic Cookbook

So I’ve been busy, too busy to cook regularly and too busy to blog about what I have cooked.  My new years resolution for 2017 is to cook more and to blog about it quicker, though this might require me to be less busy.  We’ll see how it goes.  And Happy New Year for 2017.  …

Cookbook 121: Moroccan soup bar: Recipes of a spoken menu and a little bit of spice

Because my husband’s boyfriend is a lovely and awesome man, he bought me the newly released Moroccan soup bar: Recipes of a spoken menu and a little bit of spice cookbook for Christmas.  I have been waiting for this cookbook for many many years.  I have eaten at the Moroccan Soup Bar several times, and …

Cookbook 120: Italian Moms: Spreading their art to every table

I supported Italian Moms: Spreading their art to every table on Kickstarter because it sounded so sweet.  A son helping his recently widowed mother put together a cookbook of her (and some of her friends’) favourite recipes in order to remain financially independent.  The book is peppered with stories about growing up in Italy, moving …

Cookbook 102: Best of Vegetarian

I’m sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but February and March have been really busy for me – too busy to even cook from cookbooks.  There has been a big birthday party to organise, an international guest visiting, my wedding anniversary, illness, going away, and lots of other things cropping up on the …

Cookbook 96: 4 Ingredients

This isn’t my cookbook.  4 Ingredients by Kim McCosker and Rachael Bermingham isn’t a book I was all that interested in cooking from either, as the whole idea of cooking with only 4 ingredients wasn’t particularly appealing.  I understand that this book is aimed at people who have little experience with cooking and/or who are …

Cookbook 93: Fat-Free Vegetarian

When my husband started dating a vegetarian, he bought some vegetarian cookbooks to cook for his new partner.  Not that my husband does a lot of cooking mind you, but he wanted to have options of things to cook.  This is one of those purchases – and Fat-Free Vegetarian lies, because it’s not all fat …

Cookbook 91: The Australian Women’s Weekly Best Ever Recipes

The Australian Women’s Weekly Best Ever Recipes is an epic claim.  It’s the type of claim that you’re only going to fail at, especially when you’re making the claim sometime in the late 70s/early 80s, and being the AWW you’re going to release more Best Ever Recipe books.  This book was incredibly hard to find …

Cookbook 87: Food & Cooking of South America

Food & Cooking of South America by Jenni Fleetwood and Marina Filippelli was another of my “Hey look, a cookbook for $10” purchases.  And like some of the other purchases of this type that I have made, this one wasn’t a good choice for me.  Many of the recipes in the book are of food …
