I find cookbooks very inspirational, but I rarely use them. In fact, the only time I turn to cookbooks is for tried and true recipes I have been making for decades.
When I get a new cookbook to review, I am always impressed with the variety of recipes. If your family is like mine, we get stuck in a rut of meals that are always the same. My hope is that a new cookbook will will change that offering a chance to explore new recipes. Unfortunately, our busy family lives leave little time for exploration coupled with not having all the ingredients already in our pantry. It can be difficult to make a list of ingredients, go to the store, and follow through on a new meal.

Many of the recipes I cannot eat, as I am a vegetarian…but there’s always dessert! I am in love with a recipe for Rich Almond Cake and cannot wait to try it. The ingredients are simple, and the only thing not in my home is ricotta.
Although I don’t watch many shows on TLC, I’ve heard of many of these shows. Who wouldn’t want to try a cake recipe from the Cake Boss?
The photographs in this cookbook are mouth-watering! [amazon_link id=”1472304497″ target=”_blank” ]TLC Kitchen[/amazon_link] does not seem to be filled with exotic ingredients, like many cookbooks, and I think you will find most of them in your pantry already.
I love having cookbooks around for when my mom visits. She loves to cook from recipes, and I love trying new things. I think she will like this one!
