Vacation, TBR, or Bed: Cookbooks

March 23, 2016 Blog, VTB 0

VTBEach week, choose three books, you can choose however you want (I am choosing books that are being published that week), make it easy for your three books. Then put those three books into the categories:

  • Take on vacation
  • Take to bed
  • Put onto your TBR forever

I’m going to start posting these on Wednesday with a link up if you want to join in on the fun! I’m really excited about it and think it will get us talking about why we want to (or not) read books!

Sweeter off the vine
256 pages

A cozy collection of heirloom-quality recipes for pies, cakes, tarts, ice cream, preserves, and other sweet treats that cherishes the fruit of every season.

Celebrate the luscious fruits of every season with this stunning collection of heirloom-quality recipes for pies, cakes, tarts, ice cream, preserves, and other sweet treats.

Yossy Arefi’s recipes showcase what’s fresh and vibrant any time of year by enhancing the enticing sweetness of fruits with bold flavors like rose and orange flower water inspired by her Iranian heritage, bittersweet chocolate and cacao nibs, and whole-grain flours like rye and spelt.

fresh fish
352 pages
Expected publication: March 22nd 2016 by Storey Publishing, LLC

Cooking fish and other seafood at home is much easier than you think! Fresh Fish offers simple step-by-step instructions for all of the essential cooking methods, including baking, pan-frying, braising, broiling, steaming, poaching, roasting, marinating, and grilling — along with 175 mouthwatering recipes that bring out the best in everything from fish fillets and whole fish to shrimp, mussels, lobster, clams, calamari, and more. You’ll also learn how to buy fish (even whole fish) with confidence, how to serve fish raw, how to clean freshly dug clams, and much more. Beautiful photography celebrates both the food and the lazy charm of summers at the beach; this is a delightful read as well as the cookbook you need to easily enjoy your favorite seafood at home.


 

The VBT Verdict:

  • Fresh Fish gets to come with me on vacation. I have always been curious about cooking fish. I have recently tried and succeeded but I do not try often.
  • Sweeter Off the Vine will come with me to bed! What lovely dreams you can have after reading this!
  • The Right Bite gets put onto the TBR. So many books out there for eating right. The genre is saturated and it seems that there cannot be new info out there. It sounds interesting, but… yeah. I’ll put this one to the side.
