9781445489698 “A Year Full of Recipes”

365 recipes, one for every day of the year plus 1 for a leap year

First off I love the whole idea behind this cookbook. Let’s get creative y’all. Trying something new has never been easier. I am not an expert but the recipes seem to be listed during the part of the year when the ingredients will be in season. Also warmer comfort foods are listed when ya would want em more, the colder months. Things like strawberry shortcake and Peach Melba meringue are listed for July. Yes I know you can eat em year-round, but really peaches are better in July and August and Strawberries are so much tastier when in season.

“A Year Full of Recipes” is loaded with lots of full color photos that get your mouth watering. So many styles of recipes are listed. Sweet, Savory, Sides Main Dishes and Deserts are all included. Here’s a short list of some of my favorites listed.

Chicken Breasts with Braised Baby Vegetables

French Onion Soup

Pot Roast with Potatoes and Dill

Raspberry and White Chocolate S’Mores

Swordfish Steaks With Lime Butter

Tamale Pie


Revive your cooking repertoire with this definitive culinary guide. Cooking on a daily basis can soon drain your bank of ideas, but with a recipe for every day of the year this beautiful cookbook will provide inspiration for all manner of meals and occasions. Use the recipe meant for today’s date, or flip through for a wealth of inspiration, from main dishes to sides and sweet treats.
