Holiday Cookbook Guide 2015

For those of you who are looking for the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for-person on your list, a cookbook is a sure winner. We could all use some fresh inspiration in the kitchen, many of us are trying to cook at home more, and most people collect cookbooks these days the way people collected stamps or coins in the past. My eyes always light up when I get a new cookbook!

Here are a few cookbooks that have caught my eye lately; there is literally something for everyone in this list.

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan}

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan} 1

This Sweet Potato Spice Latte recipe uses sweet potato puree instead of pumpkin for a fun twist on a favorite fall drink. Plus, it’s paleo and vegan, adapted from Kathy Hester’s lovely The Easy Vegan Cookbook. If you know me in person you know I’m not really comfortable being in the spotlight. I’m rather shy, actually, at least until I get to know someone. And although I enjoy meeting new people, my happy place really is in the peace and quiet of my own home with the person I love most....

Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread

Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread 1

This Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread is slightly sweet, subtly scented of warm spices, and rich in color from pumpkin. And it only requires 30 minutes of hand-on prep time to make! I find that the smell of baking bread is just one of those things that puts people at ease. Maybe it evokes childhood memories or maybe it reminds them just how delicious fresh bread tastes. In any case, I wish I could bottle the smell of fresh baked bread....

Cookbook Review: Steeped by Annelies Zijderveld

French Lentil, Carrot Curl, and Moroccan Mint Sauce Salad

In the overwhelming sea of cookbooks, every so often one comes along that truly stands out. Calls to you, speaks to you, and beckons to be cooked from, again and again. This is one such book. Before I even saw it, I was pretty excited to get my hands on Steeped: Recipes Infused with Tea. The author is none other than the incredibly talented and genuinely sweet Annelies Zijderveld, who I happened to have the pleasure of meeting for lunch one day not too long ago. (And let me just say, the food was pretty fabulous, but the company was even better!)...

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.)...
