Cook Korean!: A Review

I have a confession to make: I've always wanted to learn how to make Korean dishes. But it always seemed so complicated and, well, pretty intimidating...until I read Cook Korean! by Robin Ha.

The super-talented Robin peppers her book with fun, quirky, and colorful illustrations for every step of every recipe. And what a wonderful collection of recipes, from Bulgogi Dupbap and Miyeok Naengchae, to Danpatjuk to Mulnaengmyun! I can now prepare all these dishes (even though I may not be able to pronounce them) with total ease and confidence.

If you've always wanted to try making some healthy and exotic Korean dishes, this is the ultimate cookbook to help you do just that!

Modern Potluck: A Review

I have a confession to make. I've always thought that the next cookbook I'd want to write would be on potluck dishes. Alas, Kristin Donnelly has beat me to it...and she's done such a marvelous job!

In her book, Modern Potluck: Beautiful Food to Share, Kristin offers such a great variety of dishes anyone would be proud to bring to a gathering. They're unique, interesting, colorful, and delicious.

The book is divided into thoughtful chapters that cover snacks, dips, drinks, salads, main dishes, casseroles, sides, sweets, and even condiments.

The directions are simple and clear. The photos are striking. And the information is very helpful.

I plan to turn to this book over and over again, not only for potlucks, but for my own family meals, too!
