Cookbook and Food Magazine Addictions, Part Deux, Hardcover

We all have our weaknesses, a few a bit greater difficult than others. If you study my article on Cookbook and Food Magazine addictions, you realize approximately my publicly admitted foibles. Apparently, I cannot show restraint as I even have these days introduced to my growing addiction series. I’ve come upon a few sincerely superb cookbooks and interesting books recently; some are hardcover, some are softcover, now not that this even makes a difference but for my own growing madness of the ‘ever-growing library,’ I’ve divided sharing my findings with you into Part Deux, hardcover and Part Trois, softcover. This is absolutely getting out of hand; I now have an ongoing 3 component cookbook saga!

Most Junior League Cookbooks have the recognition of being exemplary. And there (I have quite the JL collection as nicely, perhaps that is Part Quatre!) because of the effort and time and exuberance that is poured into every ‘challenge,’ nothing less than ‘gorgeous’ is produced. Hard to apprehend this? Join the Junior League, and you may understand.

OK, soapbox! Soapbox! I’m off.

First, what makes this book so first-rate is there are snapshots on each web page showing kids making the recipe and what the object looks like if completed. There are numbered blocks for every recipe 1-2-3, outlining the practice steps for the kid. This is a top-notch systematic technique in detailing how to get from starting to stop for the child to cook dinner without it being overwhelming. For every recipe, there’s a kitchen equipment section that lists what hardware objects are wanted for your infant to put together the dish and maximum recipes offer a sidebar tip.
