I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!
I am like a big kid when it comes to Christmas! I love absolutely everything about it–the decorations, making food, getting together with family and friends, the lights, the tree, buying gifts, wrapping gifts, the plays, the books, the music, the movies, the cartoons…I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT CHRISTMAS!!
So when I saw this book in August, I got excited to add a little Christmas cheer to my summer! I have to say the photos were perfect for a Christmas book and really set the tone for this book in such a good way!
There are meat recipes in here and I don’t eat meat, but there are A LOT of vegetarian soup and salad recipes that look delicious like a Warm Bean Salad with Cashew and Kale Pesto and Oven Roasted Beets Stuffed with Goat Cheese, Dates and Celery. And, of course, the dessert recipes were all vegetarian. I didn’t see any unfamiliar or exotic ingredients – I get turned off by ingredients that I have never heard of or are hard to find or you can only get online and shipping is ridiculous and you have never heard of this ingredient so should you even bother? This cookbook had interesting recipes that used ingredients found in most grocery stores.
I would like to thank Abrams Press and Netgalley for my copy in exchange for my honest review.
