I love cook-books. Were it not for them, I would not be able to cook a decent meal – well okay I probably would, but they make life that bit easier. I follow them religiously, I rely on them to secure me a tasty meal, and thanks to the collection of cook-books I’m starting to horde, we can enjoy varied meals without stressing out too much. I’m sometimes a bit ‘adventurous’ with a recipe and swap an ingredient, add something in or omit a herb. That’s the beauty of a recipe – you can choose to taylor it and make it your own or or you can play it safe and follow the steps.
The things I look out for in a cook-book are essentially two. I want a cookbook which features recipes with easy ingredients which are easy to find. There is nothing more annoying than finding what looks like a delicious recipe, with mouth-watering photos to accompany it, and then realizing that you have never heard of at least half the ingredients listed there. And the other thing is that I want an easy-to-follow recipe, worth its’ time and effort.
Grandma’s Best Recipes ticks both boxes. You have a great and wide selection of plates and dishes. There’s some good old Macaroni and Cheese, Fried Chicken, Stews, Puddings and Cakes and much more. The book also has very cute jar lid labels to cut out and use! I’m telling you, it’s a very useful book to have on your book shelf for when you want to try out something homely and comforting!
