Bad Bananas: A Story Cookbook for Kids By Karl Beckstrand
Bad Bananas: A Story Cookbook for Kids - Karl Beckstrand,Jeff Faerber

Karl Beckstrand has brought us another great books. This one not only tells a story but is also filled with 7 yummy recipes featuring Banana's. 

 

The book basically tells the life of a banana. From being picked from the tree to turning brown and slimy. The story also tells about being good and bad so there is a lesson involved. My favorite kind of Children's book. 

 

The recipes are easy but sound very yummy. But also does caution to have an adult present as you will be using a knife or stove in some. The recipes include Banana Smoothies, Chewy Banana Cookies, Bread, pudding, pancakes, and toppings. 

 

I received this book from the Author to read and review. The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it.

Death of a Cookbook Author
Death of a Cookbook Author - Lee Hollis Death of a Cookbook Author - Lee Hollis I received and ARC of this book from Netgalley and Kensington Publishing for my honest review.

Hayley Powell is a food columnist for The Island Times in Bar Harbor, Maine. While at a book signing by Penelope Janice, one of the top stars for the Flavor Network for her latest cookbooks. Penelope asks Hayley to participate in a celebrity potluck contest as a last minute fill in for a no show guest at her estate over the Fourth of July weekend to be filmed for her cooking show. Hayley gets food poisoning from some bad mussels the first night, then she overhears a man, who she believes to be Penelope's husband Conrad, and a woman plotting a murder of who she thinks is Penelope. When Hayley tells Penelope what she'd overheard, Penelope doesn't believe her. Things get even more complicated when Conrad is found dead at the bottom of a cliff after a night of heavy drinking. Hayley now has to find out if Conrad's death was an accident as everyone believes it to be, or if it was murder like Hayley suspects. Hayley call Bruce, the crime reporter for the paper after an attempt is made on her life, the two team up to work on figuring out the mystery.

With a house full of suspects it's hard to narrow down who killed Conrad until the surprising reveal. We don't have the usual characters in this book as Hayley's children have both left home and her two best friends only make the briefest of appearances so we are introduced to some new colorful characters. It was nice to see Hayley's and Bruce's relationship take a turn towards them being a couple after being coworkers and friends since book 1. The author does a nice job of drawing you into the story with her characters, well plotted mystery, and her well paced story line.

Healthy Air Fryer Cookbook: 100 Great Recipes with Fewer Calories and Less Fat by Dana Angelo White
Healthy Air Fryer Cookbook: 100 Great Recipes with Fewer Calories and Less Fat - Dana Angelo White MS RD AT

My husband bought me an Air Fryer for Christmas, man he is the best Santa ever. I really wanted an air fryer for a long time. The Air Fryer came with a small cookbook to get me started but I wanted more. So when I saw this book on Netgalley.com I requested it and was lucky enough to be approved for it.  I love to cook and try new recipes and this book helps me with my passion for cooking, plus 100 new recipes to try and I get to feed my family healthy while I am at it. 

 

The recipes are in categories: Breakfast, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. Each recipe shows a pictures, has a list of ingredients, step by step instructions, and nutrition counts. Each recipe is also under 500 calories per serving. 

 

I did make the chicken strips and they came out amazing. My husband loved them. I will definitely be making more recipes from this book. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Review: Nadiya's British Food Adventure by Nadiya Hussain (sampler)
Nadiya's British Food Adventure - Nadiya Hussain

Published by: Michael Joseph (13th July 2017)

 

ISBN: 978-0718187668

 

Source: Netgalley 

 

Rating: 4*

 

Synopsis: 

Nadiya Hussain, winner of 2015's Great British Bake Off, is loved for her warmth and charisma as well as her unique approach to flavours. In her brand new TV series and book, Nadiya sets off around the country to meet some of the food heroes, growers and producers who are changing the face of modern British food.

 

Inspired by her journey, Nadiya has devised over 120 easy and enticing new recipes that fuse the local ingredients she encounters with her favourite flavours, plus a nod here and there to her Bangladeshi roots. Her reinvented classics sum up the remarkable diversity of twenty-first century Britain and the melting pot of tastes and culinary influences that shape what we all love to cook and eat today.

 

Nadiya's recipes just beg readers to try and taste for themselves, including: Masala Eggy Bread, Spiced Bean and Banger Stew, Ploughman's Cheese and Pickle Tart, Fish Pie with Cinnamon Sweet Potato, Lamb Bhuna with Garlic Naan, Star Anise Chicken Wings with Chunky Chips, Rosemary Banoffee Pie and Eton Mess Cheesecake.

 

Review:

The sampler of this cookbook from the winner of the popular Bake Off programme is crammed with appealing photographs designed to get your tummy rumbling and your tastebuds tingling, and it certainly did that!

The recipes are easy to follow and not there's no faffing about like you get with some other recipe books. After looking through this well thought out taster, I'll be looking forward to trying out some recipes from the full version.

Air Fryer Cookbooks
Air Fryer Cookbook: 250 Tasty Recipes for 30 Days Whole Food Challenge - Marta Getty
Air Fryer Cookbook: With Over 100 Best Recipes of Healthy Meals For The Whole Family - Inna Volia

Both books provide different recipes for the Air Fryer, but some of them would not work with the Air Fryer I am using. Both were obtained for free and so I may look back on them if I get another Air Fryer in the future.
