Book Review- Or should I say books review? Either way I'm reviewing me some books today!

It's no secret I love to cook. And through the years I've come a long way. I've gained a mountain of knowledge in my quest to cook healthier and like a miner hunting for gold, I think I've struck it.
I've been eyeballing the Sue Gregg cookbooks for quite some time. I downloaded the free sample she offers and tried a few recipes, but the books I wanted were a little more than I wanted to spend and I couldn't just choose one to start with. So I found her website and sent the link to my husband explaining fully how I really didn't NEED the cookbooks but it WOULD benefit him and the family in a round about way and I left it at that. My husband knows my heart and my intentions and I did post a pretty good argument, I mean I explained how I could save the rain forest if I just had these cookbooks. Okay maybe not save the rain forest but I know something good will come of it. Aaaanyways, I had since forgotten about it and about 4 or 5 days later a box came in the mail addressed to my husband and I didn't even look at the return address so the box sat there for a few hours not being opened. My husband calls me from work which sparked the whole, "Oh yeah, you got a package today." He asks from who and I look and it's from Sue Gregg. Oh happy moment!!!! It was kind of cool because he got to witness my excitement over the phone. Now of course I tore into the box like a kid on Christmas and I swear I heard the Hallelujah chorus and saw a light shine down on my precious new Sue Gregg cookbooks. I've been perusing them ever since. Now these aren't just cookbooks with recipes. She has a TON of useful information in these babies. She has Menu's made up depending on your tastes and she explains things in layman's terms for those of us who have been known to stare blankly at some recipes and go "Huh?"
So last night I got my books and my free menu planner form and started making my menu. I've decided to have a one month rotating menu but have room for new recipes to be added. They didn't all come from here because my family loves a lot of my brainstorm recipes that I have posted on my cooking blog, but I am incorporating a few of Sue's each week. I'll let you know how I like them.

Have a most excellent Monday my friends!

  8. I love cookbooks. I'm definitely interested to find out how you like the recipes. We're trying to eat healthier and most of the recipes I have aren't, so I need to find some good cookbooks. :D
