Cookbook Review

Here is a place where I would like to turn people on to some new cookbooks. I have gone through fits and spurts with cookbooks: in an effort to save space I have tried to stop buying cookbooks however this has been very difficult and I have found that I am not really a fan. I like cookbooks, I read them like novels. Most of the time when a book fair comes to my school I will buy some novels for my classroom but I will also most likely end up buying at least two cookbooks as well. I have decided there are a ton of books out there since I have tried to slow down on cookbook consumption that I am now missing out on. So it is time to get back on the horse as they say. Cookbooks are on the top of my Christmas wish list, so bring it on family and friends I am ready for you. I will only post links on this page for books that I have personally reviewed, so just like I have pointed out in my disclosure page, these are my own honest opinions. And if you are interested in any of these cookbooks I would really like to encourage you to buy through my site!

I will also be rating these on forks, i.e. 4 out of 4 forks is a fantastic book, why are you still reading you should be clicking over to (hopefully via my site) and buying this book!


**PS: I am slowly working on this so if there is something on here that sounds interesting that I have listed but not linked back to you yet with a description/review let me know and I will get to it out of order! I would also like to point out that I get a lot of recipes off of my go to meal planning site Relish, if you go to this website and decide to join please list me as your reference!
