the cook(book)ing school: celebrate all year round

Seasons & Celebrations: A Market-Fresh Cookbook for All Occasions by Jill Melton

Seasons & Celebrations: A Market-Fresh Cookbook for All Occasions by Jill Melton

This is such a great and colorful book. What I like the most is that it provides an eclectic collection  of culturally relevant recipes that reflect the ethnicity of a particular holiday or celebration. I jotted some recipes down and hope to make them in the coming year. I would definitely add this to my cookbook collection.

the cook(book)ing school: Super Foods for a Super Body

SuperFoods by Michael van Straten & Barbara Griggs

SuperFoods by Michael van Straten & Barbara Griggs

As for visually pleasing, this book is chock full if beautiful, vibrant photos of all of the super foods it recommends that we add to our diets. However, I didn’t appreciate the layout of the book and it was a bit unorganized to me. Otherwise, it’s a great colorful resource.

the cook(book)ing school: eat right for your body type

Ayurveda Inspiring Cooking for Your Individual Well Being by Anne Buhring and Petra Rather

Ayurveda Inspiring Cooking for Your Individual Well Being by Anne Buhring and Petra Rather

Because I’m very interesting the area of Ayurveda as it pertains to skincare, makeup, and hair care, I thought this looked like a great book to also apply the same principles of Ayurveda to cooking.  I was right! This book is a great resource for determining what type of “food type” you are and then choosing recipes based on that.  And it’s absolutely great for vegetarians. I highly recommend it for anyone’s cookbook collection.

the cook(book)ing school: food for energy

Energy Foods by Nic Rowley & Kirsten Hartvig

Energy Foods by Nic Rowley & Kirsten Hartvig

This book may be little, but it’s chock full of colorful ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner using a recommended list of what are known as Energy Foods.  I definitely saw a few items I would try to add to my eating repertoire.  A great, easy to read little reference guide.

the cook(book)ing school: Looking for an alternative for processed foods?

Anti-Inflammatory Foods For Health by Barbara Rowe and Lisa Davis

Anti-Inflammatory Foods For Health by Barbara Rowe and Lisa Davis

I was recently on a search for foods with an anti-inflammatory nature and I ran across this book at my local library.  It’s a great resource for anyone trying to move to a more veggie friendly lifestyle and move away from processed foods.  One of my favorite recipes is for the Spaghetti Squash, I’ve made it twice already, and the fresh spaghetti sauce can stretch and be used to go on top of other dishes. I would definitely add this to my cookbook collection.
