Hi Everyone!

What a week! If you’re like me you’re probably still recovering from late night election watching.

As the dust settles after the election, I find myself inspired by all things American and found this cute book of all American recipes. I don’t own this book, but it looks like fun (and full of great recipes too).

Find it on Amazon. Try it and let me know what you think!

Happy post-election day to all our American readers, and happy reading!

Hi Everyone!

We’re coming up to the busy holiday season. I thought I would tell you about a book that can get you from Monday to Friday without having to wonder what to make for dinner.

Canadian Living’s Everyday Favorites is excellent. This book is full of simple recipes that cover all types of diets and tastes.

The Tabouleh salad recipe makes a huge batch and its so good!

If you’re a meat eater there are some delicious stir fry and pasta repicpes as well.

You can grab this book on Amazon or Indigo/Chapters.

Happy Cooking!

Wish List

When I was in high school something magical happened: our cable provider added the Food Network to our services. Since then I’ve been hooked on cooking and baking shows and can’t seem to stop. In my early Food Network endeavours, I was introduced to the one and only Naked Chef, aka Jamie Oliver. I don’t know if it’s his British charm or his good food but I just can’t seem to get enough of him. Most recently his food adventures took him around his home country in his series Jamie’s Great Britain.

Along with the show Oliver has also released a book with the recipes featured in the television series. I may be a vegetarian but even I can appreciate the variety of meaty recipes in this book. It’s always a delight to watch Jamie Oliver on TV and his books are just as fantastic. He puts a lot of love in his work and it shows. That’s why Jamie’s Great Britain is on my wish list this year!

Happy reading and eating!

Love, Emily

Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday!

This week’s selection is not a book, but a magazine (actually, a whole series of magazines).

Food Heaven is a British magazine series that is absolutely wonderful. The magazine runs several different series including…

Baking Heaven 

Cake Decorating Heaven

and

Cup Cake Heaven

The photos in these magazines are fantastic. They are bold, bright, showing lots of detail. These magazines have page after page of truly inspiring designs and recipes.

Some of the recipes are intricate and detailed and may not fit into the busy baker’s schedule. At the very east these magazines are filled with eye candy!

Happy Baking,

Emma
