Your Best Body Now, by Tosca Reno

This is a diet and exercise book I can actually get a little excited about.  Why?  Author Tosca Reno started her quest towards health and fitness at 40!  Gives us all hope. I love how she completely takes us through her journey from unhappy housewife and mother of three to amateur body builder at 42.  […]

1st Oct 2010 Posted in: Recipe, Review Comments Off on 650 Best Food Processor Recipes by George Geary & Judith Finlayson

Everything you ever wanted to know about your food processor, but were afraid to ask.  The 650 Best Food Processor Recipes is not a book, it’s an encyclopedia, and a wonderful way to utilize that $200 piece of equipment gathering dust on your counter top.  They cover everything from sauces to yeast breads, and give […]

29th Sep 2010 Posted in: Recipe, Review Comments Off on The Comfort of Apples: Modern Recipes for an Old-Fashioned Favorite

An adorable book perfect for the Fall season that is upon us, The Comfort of Apples is as pretty to look at as it is useful in grasping just what in the WORLD to do with all the apples you picked (or purchased).  Filled with unique dishes such as Poached Eggs and Apple Butter, Miso- […]

8th Jul 2010 Posted in: Recipe, Review Comments Off on Review: Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss

 This book came our way awhile back and we were impressed.  This is not your average diabetic cookbook.  Authored by a doctor (Howard M. Shapiro) and a chef (Franklin Becker), this book both educates AND provides interesting and innovative recipes from renowned chefs, including Lidia Bastianich, Michel Nischan, and (Cindie’s VERY favorite) Eric Ripert. The […]

21st Jun 2010 Posted in: Review 1

At Camp Blogaway, Denise had a chance to get reacquainted with an old friend and culinary contemporary, Barbara Gibbs Ostmann (that’s Barbara on the right). Barbara was a fellow presenter, doling out invaluable advice on recipe writing, copyright and attribution. Barbara’s book, The Recipe Writer’s Handbook, is literally Denise’s bible when it comes to writing […]

18th Jun 2010 Posted in: Review Comments Off on Becoming A Master Slow Cooker

In our previous post about slow cookery, we highlighted Phyllis Pellman Good’s book.  She was kind enough to allow us to reprint the tips that appear in the beginning of the book.  These will answer all the questions you have about using a slow cooker, and then some.  Enjoy! Tips for Using Your Slow Cooker: […]

28th May 2010 Posted in: Recipe, Review Comments Off on Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook. Review by Blog Mistress Mandy

It is time to get out your crock pots!  This cookbook is so much fun.  I love how the recipes are organized by specific dish.  For instance, if you’re looking for a beef stew recipe, the book gives you five or six recipe options, all in a row.  You can decide what sounds tastiest to […]

23rd Feb 2010 Posted in: Recipe, Review Comments Off on We Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Orange Pound Cake!

Well, actually we can believe it’s not butter, but this was still very yummy! Denise had a coupon, was curious since she is not normally a margarine fan, Mandy’s husband is lactose intolerant…it was time to bake (yes, Mandy used bread flour-oops!-don’t judge). Mandy made an orange pound cake, and the recipe was very easy. […]

Blog Mistress Mandy, here. I just read Cherie Soria’s book, The Raw Revolution Diet, and all I can say is oh my Chocolate Velvet heavens (I made this for my husband and he ate the entire batch right out of the blender-classy)! If you think eating raw is about deprivation, it is not so. The […]

22nd Jan 2010 Posted in: Review Comments Off on How To Bake Bread by Michael Kalanty. Review by Blog Mistress Mandy

As a cook, I am afraid of baking. I know I’m not alone in this. The precise weights, measures and formulas make this girl shake in her Dansko clogs (math not a strong suit-I promptly dropped out of Algebra 2x as soon as I got a college acceptance letter). Michael took all the fear away […]
