Review for Strawberry Love

Review for Strawberry Love

Strawberry Love: 45 Sweet and Savory Recipes for Shortcakes, Hand Pies, Salads, Salsas, Strawberries, Red, Sorbet Cup, Pink, Cynthia Graubart, Cookbook, Baking, Yummy, Non-fictionI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I love strawberries, I love cooking/baking, so this book was a match made in heaven for me. And that cover. It is a good thing it an ebook, otherwise I may have licked or nibbled the cover. 😛

This, as the title also states, has 45 yummy delicious recipes all featuring strawberries. From making jam (with also clear instructions on how to clean jars) to waffles with strawberries to milkshakes to well.. many other delicious and making my stomach rumble in delight recipes. Well, OK, not all where delicious, or at least I don’t think strawberries on hamburgers sound very yummy, or chicken breasts with strawberry onion jam. Maybe they are, if I get the chance to try them, I would definitely do that.
And like all cookbooks, I have to do some editing on a couple of recipes as they contain nuts. I would so love a nut-free book for once.

The recipes can be difficult or long but there are also plenty of short recipes which don’t require a lot of time or ingredients. All recipes are written clearly and are easy to follow.

I like that on the sides is what kind of recipe it is. That makes it easy when one is flipping through the book. You can just search for the sides for the one you want. We got drinks, savory delights, and more.

Almost all recipes have a photograph included, I really loved those and I loved how homely and warm it all felt. This may sound weird, in my head it sounded much better, but what I mean is, in some cooking books it is all boring or stiff or looks like something out of a restaurant.

And I have to mention this as MANY US cookbooks don’t do it, this one also adds the Celsius! How often I have had to try and use Google calculator to find out what temperature I should set my oven and then pray it was the right one. 😛
Now all I have to do is convert cups/ounces to what we use here (grams and such), oh and inches to centimetres. But the important oven is at least done.

All in all, this was a yummy book and I would definitely recommend it. If I can locate the book I may also add it to my collection of cookbooks.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
