the cook(book)ing school: great low calorie summer cooking ideas

the ultimate low calorie cookbook by better homes and gardens

Since I’ve been exploring low carb and low calorie cooking lately, this book was a great find. (I found it at Walmart a few months ago, who by the way has a great cookbook section). I was also looking for a cookbook that gave you a breakdown of calories (and other nutritional information) of each recipe as well as a book that divided the recipes up by meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts), that way I can pick and choose, mix and match my meals and (try) not go over my assigned daily calories for weight loss. I totally recommend this book for anyone looking for easy, quick, and modern recipes in a very photo pleasing cookbook.

the cook(book)ing school: clueless in the kitchen? check out “how to boil water”

How To Boil Water by Food Network Kitchens

I love this book!  It’s absolutely great for anyone just starting out but also a great read for anyone who wants to know why certain basic procedures should be done when preparing for cooking and searching for the perfect foods.  How to Boil Water by Food Network Kitchens would make a great graduation or newlywed gift. I’m not in either category but I will definitely be adding this one to my cookbook shelf.

Thanks for reading and following my blog.
