What We Thought:

We really liked this cookbook. We thought there are a lot of interesting recipes in it. The main point of this cook book is to have simple recipes using ingredients that’s already in your kitchen. We feel that it does a good job with showing you how to do that because a lot of the recipes are easy and have common ingredients. Although some of the recipes could be for the more adventurous cook since some of the ingredients may not be that common. We also liked the contest of the recipes because there’s a nice selection to choose from. The layout was really nice because they had everything separated, like different chapters for different foods, and we liked how there are some pages where they show how to make veggies three different ways. And some that show you how to do different sauces and dressings.

It really doesn’t have a lot to do with the cookbook, but we liked how there were little tidbits with the judges. Barbecue they’re basically the coolest.

Probably our favorite thing about the cookbook is when you open the book on the first page its a basket! It’s the little things people.

In a Nutshell:

This is a pretty good cookbook. If you want some simple recipes to try. But be warned this cookbook probably wouldn’t be for someone who doesn’t cook a lot. If you love to cook or know someone who does this would be a nice cookbook to have. Especially if you’re a fan of the show like us! 

We also used this cookbook to make our awesome Spaghetti &Tomato Carbonara!
