Usually I like to sink my teeth into Holiday romance novels. I like the feel good themes of them. They are usually set in some snowy wonderland and the couple always is happy in the end. So like real life. Yah right! It’s all about fiction people.
This year I decided to mix it up a little by throwing cookbooks into the mix. I love to entertain during the holiday season and I am always looking for interesting dishes to add to my repertoire. So I went searching for some good holiday cookbooks.
How many of you out there learned to cook using the Betty Crocker cookbook? I did. Maybe it was because it was the only cookbook my Mom owned (wedding gift) or maybe it is because a lot of the recipes were basic and pretty straight forward. Either way I don’t care it was there and I used it as my foodie bible. Turns out that Betty Crocker also has a Christmas cookbook. There are a few interesting recipes, nothing that is really gonna wow you but it is worth a look.
For those of you interested, there is an updated Betty Crocker cookbook called Betty Crocker Cookbook: 1500 recipes for the way you cook today. There are a lot of wonderful cookbooks out there but the Betty Crocker cookbook is truly designed for those who are either new to cooking or who are like myself, cooking challenged. So you may want to give it a try.
And don’t think for a second that I am going to give up on my quest for the perfect holiday novel. If and when I find one that is worth sharing I will let you know so keep an eye out on my blog.
