Something you guys may not know about me is that I really enjoy cooking. I don’t share recipes on here too often because I’m most definitely more of a recipe follower than an “I’ll just go whip something up!” kind of person, haha. Because of this, I’ve amassed quite the collection of cookbooks over the last few years and I thought it’d make for a fun post to share five of my absolute favorites!
My cooking style involves a lot of fresh produce, not necessarily always made with meat but also not always without, and a healthy dose of comfort food. I love using lots of veggies, but also have no qualms about adding bacon to almost anything ;)
The original Oh She Glows cookbook is pretty well-known, and for good reason. While I don’t have it myself, I have tried some of the recipes in it via friends of mine and they have all been SO good. So, when Oh She Glows Everyday came out, I had to have it! It’s full of plant-based recipes that are all pretty quick and easy to make, and so far I’ve loved everything I’ve made in it.
This cookbook was made by Kate from Cookie and Kate, a vegetarian foodie blog. I’ve tried several of the recipes on her blog (these sweet potato burritos are one of my most favorite foods in the entire world) and absolutely LOVED them all, so as soon as I saw that she had a cookbook, I had to order it. So glad I did, because this girl is a recipe creating genius.
The swearing strewn throughout this cookbook is honestly what first drew me in, haha. It’s hilarious to read through while following their seriously delicious vegetarian recipes. One thing I really love about the Thug Kitchen cookbooks (I also have Thug Kitchen 101) is that alongside providing you with a ton of crazy good recipes, they also teach you how to cook certain things, which is awesome. PS – make the mango curry.
If you’re looking for comfort food, then you NEED this cookbook. Hoooly moly. Her mac and cheese is TO. DIE. FOR. and if that’s not enough to convince you to get this cookbook, then I don’t know what is.
I used to find myself constantly making the same salads over and over and over, simply because I didn’t know what else to mix together. With over 260 ideas in here (everything from sweet to savory), this cookbook changes the salad game.
All five of these cookbooks have so many incredible recipes that are tried and true favorites of mine, and I can’t recommend them enough! What’s your favorite cookbook?
