My Favorite Cookbooks This Year

November 29, 2018

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Mine went well, and we are just finishing up the yummy leftovers, the best part of Thanksgiving!

I thought now would be a good time to round up my favorites of all the cookbooks I reviewed this year.

Eat a Little Better by Sam Kass

There are so many intriguing recipes in this book. The green bean recipe I tried is one I have repeated. After the holidays when I want to get back to healthyish eating, this is a cookbook I will turn to.

Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan

I loved all three recipes I made from this book, and there were so many more I wanted to try. With gorgeous photos and useful baking tips, this is a book worth owning.


The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman

Perelman’s writing is so engaging and the photos are super helpful. It’s one of those cookbooks where I wanted to make everything!


Run Fast. Eat Slow. by Elyse Kopecky and Shalene Flanagan

This book is a funny pick for me because I am definitely not a runner. But I have to say, the recipes I have tried from this book are tasty and healthy without being full of weird and expensive ingredients.


Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat

Last but not least, this book was the first book I reviewed for the blog. It also had the most influence in changing the way I cook. I’ve heard that the Netflix show of the same name is delightful, and watching it is on my list of Christmas break activities.

Let me know which cookbooks you discovered and loved this year!

    I checked out Chrissy Teigen’s newest cookbook, Cravings:Hungry For More, this year and the French Onion Soup recipe was amazing. I want to make it on a weekly basis, tbh.
