Thinking about whipping up some new recipes? Take a look at the several cook books below to try something fresh and fun!
Baking Basics and Beyond by Pat Sinclair provides simple baking tips, especially for those who are beginner bakers. I like this book a lot because the techniques are so simple. I’m not an experienced baker at all, so it helps to have a book like this around the kitchen. Many traditional American desserts are included including Buttery Crescent Dinner Rolls and Dark Chocolate Cake.
Here’s a cool book for vegans! Vegan Junk Food: 225 Sinful Snacks that are Good for the Soul by Lane Gold has the perfect combination of vegan snacks to whip up. Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to eat veggies and tofu everyday. This book offers delicious alternatives such as Chocolate Raspberry Muffins, Jalapeno Poppers and Vegan Whoopie Pies. I’m not vegan, but these recipes are definitely worth trying!
Can you make other food using a muffin tin? Matt Kadey sure can! His new book Muffin Tin Chef features 101 recipes you can make of your favorite treats. What are you perks of these small dishes, you ask? First, you’re eating less calories (portion control!). It also is fun finger foods to share when hosting parties. By the looks of the featured dishes in this book, Matt knows how to pack lots of flavor in a small amount.
