Spring is in full bloom here in sunny Southern California and ya know what? That makes me really, really happy! 🙂
I know BigSis just shared some photos of the crazy snow that hit Dallas on the first full day of Spring, but things couldn't be more different here. Not only am I happy, but all the rain that we got here in January and February produced some very happy flowers in my yard.
So, what does the weather have to do with a cookbook giveaway?
The sun's shining, the flowers are blooming, and I'm in a good mood so I thought this would be as good a time as any to give away a copy of one of my favorite cookbooks, “Cooking Light way to cook”.
This hardcover, almost 500 page cookbook has over 850 photos that show you how to prepare more than 200 recipes. I'm a “visual learner” so this cookbook is “right up my alley”. Cooking Light describes this cookbook as a highly visual book and that's no exaggeration.
Here's just a little peek inside this book. There's a ton of “How To” step-by-step instructions in this book; from the simple “Way to Steam Veggies” and “How to Boil an Egg” to “How to Grill Fish” and “How to Braise Meat.”
There's also a whole section devoted to “How To” baking instructions that I will definitely be reading when I decide that it's time for me to work on my baking skills. If you're like me and love cookbooks loaded with beautiful photos, I really think you'll love this book!
