The book is filled with recipes I would love to eat. Recipes I would love to cook? Not so much.
In case you're new around here I'll start with the basics, I'm definitely a novice in the kitchen. I don't like buying a million ingredients I'm only going to use for one recipe, and I don't often have a lot of unique ingredients on hand. That's where things fell a little flat as I excitedly flipped through the cookbook. Just about every single recipe looked amazing, but every single recipe required obscure (to me) ingredients. I mean some of them even included rose petals...
I'm sure I will eventually dive into trying out a recipe or two-- they all look divine-- but for now it's not a cookbook I'll reach for when it comes to meal planning or just cooking in general. I wouldn't say the book is a total loss because the pictures alone really are gorgeous and the book is filled with so much information when it comes to healthy eating.
Have you ever come across a cookbook that you wanted to love, but just didn't align with your lifestyle? What are some of your favorite cookbooks?
