Featured Cookbooks & Recipes

For the new year, we’re starting a weekly post here on the blog compiling some of the recipes and cookbooks we’ve recently featured on Facebook and Twitter. Many of the recipes are samples from recently indexed cookbooks, so even if you don’t have the book (yet!), they can give you an idea of what each one has to offer. We will also share online recipes from indexed magazines and recently added member recipes, so it is our hope there will be a little bit of something here for everyone!

Some members have expressed an interest in trying some of our featured recipes, so if you get the chance to make any of these, we’d love to hear how they turn out. You can contribute to the forum threads Daily Cooking Inspiration or Cooking from Your Books, leave a comment on this post, add a note to the recipe, or tweet us a photo. Happy cooking & baking everyone!

    I agree, I'll look forward to reading this each week. Although I've got a horrible feeling it'll lead to even more cookery nook purchases!
