I was content to be five cookbooks past the point where I swore to not buy anymore cookbooks.....but then I found a really good recipe for vanilla cream scones and well, here we are.

The answer to the eternal question: what am I going to make for dinner tonight? Unfussy recipes that are interesting and packed with flavor, but don't require a special trip to the store. There's even an index of "recipes by cravings, mood & realities." Everything I've tried has been delicious - I bought a copy for myself and my mom for Mother's Day.

Chaat is one of my favorite foods and the number of combinations in this book is astounding. The pictures are gorgeous! If you're looking for a sweet, salty, tangy, spicy snack that will blow your mind and your tastebuds, buy this book. It's a perfect door into the culinary magic that is Indian food (beyond Chicken Tikka Masala, which was invented by the British...).

Snacking Cakes

Snacking Cakes: Simple Treats for Anytime Cravings: A Baking Book By Yossy Arefi Cover Image
$24.00
ISBN: 9780593139660

Published: Clarkson Potter - October 27th, 2020

Recently I've been baking a treat for the week every Saturday morning (a practice I highly recommend). I'm not a particularly skilled baker, but every cake I've tried from this book has been easy and turned out perfectly, no stand mixer required. Arefi offers flavor variations for every recipe so the options are pretty endless - I can't wait to start baking with farmer's market produce in the spring and summer. Favorites so far are the Black- and Blueberry Ricotta Cake (p 36 - I used frozen berries and added some raspberries as well), and Almond Butter Banana Cake (p 87 - better than the best banana bread you've ever had).
