I meant to tell you all about these cookbooks in October. And then in November. And then again in early December so you'd have time to order them for Christmas.
This might be perfect timing, though, right? If you did not get these books for Christmas, well...it's time to treat yourself. (Or, ask for them for Valentine's Day.)
1. The Cookie Companion by Georganne Bell.
Georganne is the mastermind behind LilaLoa. Georganne is an artist with a fabulous eye for color and design. Her cookies are whimsical, beautiful and fun, and her book is just the same.
Packed with great cookie decorating info, the book contains recipes, tutorials, and tips. The book is organized alphabetically, so you'll find "eyeballs" under E and "Piping bags" and "Pumpkins" under P. Every letter is an adventure. :)
Wait until you see Georganne's vintage technique! So cool!
So, here's where I almost passed out upon seeing the book...the color charts:
Georganne walks through how to make stunning custom colors mixing gel paste food colorings.
Oh, and then there are the color palettes. *faints* I love this part. It makes my heart go pitter-patter.
Love cookie decorating? Interested in cookie decorating? You'll want The Cookie Companion.
2. The Pioneer Woman Cooks Dinnertime by Ree Drummond
Just to start, I always love the covers of Ree's books, but this one is particularly beautiful, I think.
Ree's latest book is all about DINNER! (I bet you guessed that!)
The cookbook is filled with Ree's signature...and super helpful...step-by-step photography.
You'll find 16-minute meals, freezer meals, breakfast for dinner...AND dessert. Ree wouldn't forget dessert!
I love how Ree's cookbooks are just a good read in addition to the recipes. And those ranch photos? *sigh*
I've made several recipes from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Dinnertime so far. Do I even need to tell you they were delicious? (They were.)
I'd like to send one of these lovely cookbooks to one of you! :)
