Cookbooks can be a tricky gift. Is it too narrow a cookbook (muffins only, for instance?) or too broad? Are the recipes too difficult or too easy? Will they already OWN this cookbook?
I recently got a copy of Picture Cook and I think it is the PERFECT cookbook to give as a gift. Plus it just came out last month, so the chances of them owning it already are very slim.
Even if the person you have in mind doesn’t actually cook, it makes for a great coffee table book or just a fun volume to flip through (and, probably, after seeing this cookbook, they’ll want to take up cooking).

This cookbook is unique because instead of written directions, all the instructions for making the 50+ recipes in the cookbook are illustrated instead.
Instead of plowing through paragraphs of instructions, only to realize you skipped a step, these ones are easy to see. It’s perfect for visual learners and its just so cool looking. I’ve never seen a cookbook like this.
And, even if you have no interest in picking up a kitchen knife, I’m betting this book will make you think twice.

I read a lot of Young Adult books and I read a lot of food books, but I don’t read very many (if any!) Young Adult books about food. And I really don’t read a lot of YA graphic novels about food. Lucy Knisely’s graphic novel, Relish, about her life growing up with two foodie [...]
I admit it. I’m that person. Who puts holds on library books months before they come out, just to make sure I’m the first one to get my hands on them. Who stalks blogs to read posts about upcoming hot titles. Whose “to-read” list is pages and pages long. That said, here are some of [...]
The Internet is full of suggestions for Halloween books for little ones (and for good reason. There are so many fantastic books for that age!). But what about adults? Shouldn’t we get a few books to read during the month of October that make chills run down our spines? Here are three of my favorite [...]
Written by Jennifer Petro-Roy I was a late-comer to the beauty of audiobooks, but a few years ago, I absolutely fell in love with them. Another way to read books while simultaneously making my commute less hideous? Sign me up! But ever since I left my job a little over a year ago to stay [...]
