Let’s Head to the Kitchen: Time for a Cookbook Roundup
October is National Cookbook Month!
I love all kinds of cookbooks. I love ones with healthy recipes and those with fully indulgent recipes. And what about the pictures? I especially like cookbooks that have pictures so I have a clue what I’m trying to make.
Now, I don’t claim to be a fabulous cook. In fact, I’m pretty plain when it comes to my tastes. I am happy eating the same thing most of the time, but my family not so much. Still I don’t do a great job with variety and flavor.
To be honest, I mostly love sweets and treats. I love to bake cookies and bars and breads and muffins. Breakfast foods and desserts would be my preference but I can’t live on those alone! And even though my approach to healthy living is not about restriction and lists of what to eat and not to eat, knowing that I have a sweet tooth, I like to have healthier options when it comes to dessert. Sometimes I’ll indulge in a few bites (or even a full portion) of the real thing, but other times I prefer limiting the sugar and unnecessary stuff.
Like I said, I’m no cook. I’m not a registered dietician or nutritionist. I don’t prescribe meal plans or anything like that, but I do enjoy browsing cookbooks and various recipes. And so in honor of National Cookbook Month, I gathered a list of some highly recommended cookbooks from my friends. Some you can grab for free; others you’ll need to purchase if you’re interested. Some of the cookbooks are full of healthy options while others aren’t advertised as such.

Tiny Little Chef – digital cookbook, over 200 recipes
Good Witch Kitchen – Energy Boosting Meal Plan
Recipes for a Brand New Me – 21 clean eating recipes in this ebook
Grandma’s German Cookbook – Had to include this as it comes recommended from a special friend
Sweets in the Raw: Naturally Healthy Desserts sounds like something I need to check out fast!
Hungry Girl is one of my favorite gals to follow, and she has several great cookbooks. Her most recent is Clean & Hungry Obsessed. Lots of good recipes. All of her recipes use ingredients you are likely to have in your pantry. And they are always tasty.
Generations of Love and Food Cookbook – This is a lovely cookbook by Meme and her grandmother. Every recipe includes a picture.
Wow! What a list. I imagine you can find something there you’d like to check out. Many of these books are connected to websites where you can find lots of free recipes and just pin them for future reference.
Happy Cooking and Baking!
Cookbooks also make great gifts, so you may want to grab one for a friend. The holidays are just around the corner!
