I recently returned from a visit to Portland, Oregon. While I was there, I visited one of my old haunts, Powell’s City of Books. When I lived there 15 years ago, I had a bit of a cookbook fascination. Coincidentally, upon returning home from my trip, I found not one, but two cookbooks in my mailbox (find out which ones in my Mailbox Monday post), and I was finishing up the review of The Mom 100 Cookbook for the 5 Minutes for Mom column.
In spite of the recent shipments of cookbooks which I’m really looking forward to to digging into (pun unabashedly intended), I’ve moved away from my little cookbook habit in general, and so instead of spending my time at Powell’s in that section of the store, I happily bonded with Amanda and Kyle in the Children’s and YA section (read more).
However, just because I no longer buy cookbooks like they are bread, I still love them. Whether I peruse them for recipes and tips or just read them for fun, they make me happy. The Mom 100 Cookbook is a terrific cookbook on so many levels that I’m glad I received for review. It’s the kind of book that will appeal to foodie and novice alike. And if — like me — you enjoy reading cookbooks like novels, you’ll like it for that too.
I’m pleased to say that you can win a copy over at 5 Minutes for Mom. Please click over to read my full review to find out what makes this cookbook so delightful, and while you’re there, be sure to enter to win a copy for yourself.
