What just happened? I was so excited about this book. The cookbook has beautiful colors, is full of step-by-step colored photographs. It has wonderful ideas for foods. Chocolate mouse, coffee cake, strawberry shortcake, summer strir-fry, chicken tacos, etc. So, naturally, I added a whole bunch of recipes to our weekly menu and got cooking.
My boyfriend finally asked me to please return the book by the 4th day. It's not that her recipes were terrible. They were just... nothing that warranted her own cookbook. Coffeecake, chocolate mouse, shrimp stir-fry, those are all wonderful foods, but I can find better recipes with Google.
Unlike cookbooks like Looney Spoons or Websites like Moms Who Think, this was just generally a lot of build up towards a lack of a delivery.
The food was passable. No one was asking for seconds though.
