The Homemade Kitchen


The Homemade Kitchen

     This is just a pretty cookbook. It makes everything look good. Not only are the recipes appealing--even the ones that, let's face it, sound weird-- but the whole book feels homey and comforting. This is the type of cookbook that makes people want to be natural and organic and downright domestic. It's lovely. I'm especially excited about the recipes for homemade goat cheese and feta cheese. Also, the popovers are calling my name. :)

     It's written in a friendly, engaging style that's not intimidating for a beginner, and overall I love how many from-scratch recipes there are.

     My only real complaint is that that order of the recipes can be a little confusing, since they're not ordered in sections that I'm used to (such as "soup," "desserts," "meat," etc.) which can make it difficult to find what you're looking for.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
