Great for everyday and special occasions
Love this cookbook! I love the little blurbs telling me where the recipes came from. And whether I want an easy recipe for a weeknight or I’m up for for an all day cooking adventure, it’s got it. Great all-around, everyday cookbook! Love the extra features too like playlists and menu options.
Garlic and Olive Oil: Bringing family together with food
I have been waiting (I follow this blog) and it’s finally here!! Garlic & Olive Oil’s excellent content has brought on a fresh and exciting look at cooking for me! I like to think most would say I am a pretty good home cook. But, if you are like me, I can get into ruts and aimlessly google new recipes and menu ideas attempting to switch it up. Honestly, not anymore (sigh of relief). This cookbook has truly ignited a new creative fire inside me and all the ideas are in one convenient place. I am ready to apply these techniques and recipes in my kitchen, without intimidation. I can’t wait to work my way through this beautiful book and I am sure my family and friends will be thrilled - and well fed - too;). It has something for everyone and every occasion. Thank you for the bright, delicious, ideas! I admire the love that shines through with each explanation the author provides. She is so passionate about her family traditions and what she does - cook amazing food, it’s inspiring!
