Book Review: The Loving Kitchen

The Loving Kitchen is a collection of comforting recipes straight from the kitchen of popular food blogger LeAnn Rice.
You know the feeling you get when you’re an overnight guest in someone’s home, and you awaken to a hot-off-the-griddle breakfast? Or when a coworker brings in a pan of her famous brownies to celebrate your recent promotion? Doesn’t it feel great when dinner at the neighbors’ house includes multiple courses of scratch-made recipes and conversation that lingers beyond dessert and that last cup of coffee?
For many of us, these are the moments in which we feel most loved. That’s the idea behind The Loving Kitchen. Get your family’s day started right with LeAnn’s fluffy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, or a bowl of Almond Coconut Granola and yogurt. Keep your favorite sports fans fueled through the entire game with hearty servings of Hot Sausage and Spinach Dip, or toss together a Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad for lunch with your dearest girlfriends.
Want a signature dinner you can serve on those special occasions? Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Orange Cranberry Glaze with Creamy Smashed Baby Potatoes is the perfect meal to celebrate a milestone. LeAnn’s sunny narrative and ideas for bringing people together will remind you that the best meal you’ll ever cook is the one you prepare as an act of love.
If you know me, you know I love cookbooks. I can't seem to resist them. In fact, I have a 6' bookshelf that's nearly full! Luckily for my poor bookshelf, I had this one in ebook format. If I didn't have it in this format though, I'd be looking for a physical copy. This book starts out with the author telling us that she's just like the rest of us, no fancy professional kitchen and she doesn't cook with speciality items. I think I sighed in relief at that point. The book is filled with beautiful pictures and yummy sounding recipes. Once the temps go down so starting the oven doesn't make me want to weep, I see some serious cooking in my future.


I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments and opinions are my own.
