We love cookbooks. I read them like novels before delving into the tasty adventure of trying the fare. Beautiful to look at, incredible to try and it is very much like having a conversation with the author. Between us, we accrued 5 new books this year. The first came from Jeremy and Nicole's honeymoon in Jamaica, Mon. Eat Caribbean by Virginia Burke is so much fun!
Nicole told us that as soon as Jeremy saw the book he said he wanted to get it for his parents. Boy, are we glad! The book includes a beautiful photographic tour of the islands as well as mouthwatering recipes. I can't wait to try the Jerk Chicken with Avocado and Papaya Salad. Thank you guys for thinking of us while on your honeymoon!
Butch and I are huge fans of Anne Burrell of Food Network fame. So J&N sent Pop her new book, Cook Like a Rock Star.
We ordered two cookbooks for Jeremy and also bought them for ourselves. That makes 4 very happy people with the results! The Soul of a New Cuisine, A discovery of the foods and flavors of Africa by Marcus Samuelsson is gorgeous!
Tupelo Honey Cafe is the next book and the name of the restaurant in Asheville, North Carolina.
Last but certainly not least is The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond.
Not only did we get these wonderful books but Jeremy send homemade cookies this year after so many years of my doing the same. Ginger, peanut butter with chocolate kisses and Snickerdoodles! Yummy Christmas to us!
