Bites From The Bookworms: Spring 2013

As librarians, we all love to read.  As humans, we all love to eat.  Put the two together and what do you get?  Librarians reading and testing a lot of cookbooks. Sometimes we fall in love with a particular book and use it often (see previous posts on cookbook picks).  Usually though, we find one or two recipes that receive a gold star. Listed below are some of our recent picks.

Joyce D.:  Fix It And Forget It Cookbook: Feasting With Your Slow Cooker by Phillis Good.  Any of the books in this series provide a wide variety of recipes for the slow cooker.

Lisa E.:  Taste of Home: Best Loved Recipes.  If you like Taste of Home Magazine, you may like this book as it contains the best recipes from the last 20 years - all in one spot!

Alana T.:  Bake It Like You Mean It: Gorgeous Cakes From the Inside Out by Gesine Bullock-Prado.  Showstopper cakes with all the (simple) techniques clearly explained and photographed  The recipes are great, but you could adapt the techniques to your own recipes to get similar visual results.

Amanda E.: Comfort Food Makeovers: All Your Favorites Made Lighter by America's Test Kitchen.  Good  photos, easy recipes.  I've made three recipes and they all turned out well.

Judy T.: 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches by Alison Lewis.  Who doesn't love grilled cheese?  There are some great combinations in this book.
