When I’m shopping for a new cookbook, the recipes inside need to sound absolutely delicious. But almost as important as the recipes, at least for me, are the photos. I want to see these gorgeous dishes that I will be making (or not making if they look and sound entirely too complicated!).
The Skinnytaste Cookbook delivers on both fronts. Page after page of this cookbook from the popular food blogger Gina Homolka has recipes that sound flavorful and scrumptious, and I’d say about half of the recipes, if not more, have pictures to accompany them. And those pictures are mouth-watering to say the least.
Now let me keep things real for you: I haven’t yet made a single thing in the cookbook. This is the very busiest time of year for me at work, and my credit card bill can prove it to you with all the eating out we’ve been doing! But I’m now heading into the season when there’s a bit of a hush and when I can spend a bit more time on the domestic element of my work. I have a ridiculous number of recipes in this cookbook that I’m planning on trying over the next 3 months. There have been a few dishes that I like the sound of them, but the execution seemed too cumbersome (too many unusual ingredients, for example) but for the most part, everything sounds tasty AND easy enough to replicate. So for me, the cookbook is a winner before I’ve even tried anything. I would buy this for a girlfriends as a gift in a hot second. 🙂
