My latest review is a cookbook. The cookbook is called Return to Sunday Dinner – The Simple Delight of Family, Friends and Food. It is written by Russell Cronkhite. This book is full of yummy recipes that range from easy to medium in the difficulty level of cooking and baking. The ingredients are those found in the standard grocery store (I think there is nothing worse than wanting to make something and the ingredients have to be ordered on line or at a specialty store leaving my pocket book sad). The recipes you will find in the cookbook don’t break the bank as far as ingredients to make. The recipes are classics and made around the different regions of the U.S. In the book you will these recipes sour cream mashed potatoes, honey-hazelnut acorn squash, savory chicken and dumplings, boneless smothered pork chops, spiced pumpkin mousse cake , Vermont maple-walnut tart and golden mushroom and onion soup and these are just a few of the many. The book is hard bound and I like that in my cookbooks I want them made to last my many cooking ventures that is takes me on. I also love the fact that most recipes have gorgeous pictures next to the recipe this is important as it inspires and helps me. One rather nice thing this book offers is easy time- saving do ahead tips for the day you entertain your friends and family. You can find them at the end of each chapter. I must let you know that I did get this complimentary copy from BookSneeze for my honest opinion and review and my honest opinion is that this book gets my four star review.
