The Homemade Kitchen (A Cookbook Review)

by - October 01, 2015

Hey Guys!  It's been Awhile!

Especially where cookbooks are concerned. I think you know where I'm heading with this...... Yes, that's right, it's time for another cookbook review!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that I'm kind of, maybe, obsessed with cookbooks. I love cooking and even more, I love eating! My newest cookbook is by Alana Chernila and it's called The Homemade Kitchen. In this book, Alana teaches you how to cook an egg six different ways, how to cook vegetables, how to turn fruit into jam and so on and so forth.

So many of these recipes are favorites of mine that it would be really hard for me to choose just one. However, looking at some of these recipes makes me think I might need to be a more advanced cook in the kitchen to make them.

I was so impressed by Alana's diverse and detailed recipes and I can't wait to try all of them out myself! Not to mention the pictures are gorgeous!

As per usual, I'm going to share some photos of my favorite recipes in the book and just some extra ones that I thought we're pretty! I hope you enjoy!

 Roasted Red Pepper Corn Chowder

This is what I was talking about before when I said that there were chapters for just about everything. Love!

Tagliatelle W/ Fresh Tomatoes & Balsamic Vinegar

Winter Squash

 How fitting is this now that it's officially Autumn?

Tell me......what's your favorite food? I'm interested to know! Tell me in the comments below!! Thanks so much for reading!!
