Holiday Cookies
Holiday Cookies: Showstopping Recipes to Sweeten the Season - Elisabet der Nederlanden

This has some amazing pictures for each recipe. While flipping through the book I really wanted... Pie!?!? and cookies... but I have really been wanting a chocolate cream pie. Never got the pie, but did make some cookies using one of these recipes. Some of the best cookies I have ever eaten.


In this you will find almost every holiday cookie recipe you can think of. The directions are easy to follow, and from the ones I tested the ingredient measurements are spot on, as are the cook times and temps.


In the back there is a template for a gingerbread house. I really feel it will come in handy when Christmas comes around. Hopefully this years attempt will turn out and I won't end up at the store buying a prepaid kit and trying to pass it off as homemade. Also, this very much reminded me of something I would expect Martha Stewart to publish, that is a compliment because I consider that woman the queen of making the season festive and yummy.


ELISABET DER NEDERLANDEN is a passionate professional baker and a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. She has worked as a food stylist and professional recipe developer/tester for commercial, advertising, and packaging projects. In addition, she has managed recipe testing and food styling for more than 30 cookbooks.

Harry Potter Themed Cookbooks
Cooking for Muggles - The Harry Potter C... Cooking for Muggles - The Harry Potter Cookbook: Harry Potter Recipes with Desserts, Snacks and Drinks Inspired by Harry Potter Food - Martha Stephenson
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook Presents: A Magical Christmas Menu - Dinah Bucholz
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook Presents: 10 Summertime Treats - Dinah Bucholz

These were fun to read through and I marked several to try and make for my family, especially for Halloween and/or Christmas. There are drinks (Butter Beer alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and treats and meals. They give some of the background on where the foods were used in the stories and sometimes their usage in the History of English meals. 


The one that I think will get made first is an Irish Soda Bread. I have other recipes for this and have made them successfully and they were delicious, so I am interested to see how this version turns out.

'Just Desserts' was just yummy!...
Just Desserts (Tales of the Curious Cookbook) - Mary Calmes,Greg Tremblay

So being a good girl I saved my dessert for last and it was worth every yummy last bite. I've come to the end of the road with this series and while I enjoyed them all...yes, some more than others but still I was glad I listened to them all.


These stories aren't connected by the place or character...no they're connected by a cookbook...a cookbook that contains not just recipes but recipes that bring magic into the lives of the people who make them and eat them. In 'Just Desserts' the curious cookbook offers a recipe for chocolate mousse to Boone Walton and his best friend, chef Scott Wren as they find their way from friends to lovers. I loved these two men and their story. It ticked all my hot spots and throw in Greg Tremblay as the narrator and of course it was a surefire win for me.

Breakfast, best and first meal of the day
The Around the World Breakfast Cookbook:... The Around the World Breakfast Cookbook: 30 Incredible Breakfast Dishes from All Corners of the Globe - Taste the World with These Delicious Recipes From 30 Diverse Countries - Gordon Rock

I love cookbooks, and so does my youngest. We will read through them and find things we want to try and make. My issue that I ran into was that the author would list something, using the country's name for it, and not put a note about what other names it might be called. So I would try to find out what something was and if I could have that item and just become frustrated with the recipe. I only found 2 that I really wanted to try. It was a free Amazon Kindle book, so that helped.

Instant Pot - Sitting in a Box

My sil gave me an Instant Pot to make things with since I cook more than she does and I will experiment with recipes. Since I knew that I was getting this item, I found a few free books that had recipes for it. I only found one or two recipes in this book that I was interested in trying with the instant pot. Wish me luck.
