As much as I enjoy trying recipes from blogs & pinterest, there's just something about holding a cookbook in your hands and flipping through the pages. Most recently I've been cooking from Kelsey Nixon's Kitchen Confidence. This cookbook is filled with 100 recipes that are practical, everyday recipes that I would actually want to make--think cinnamon rolls, banana bread, pot roast, chicken salad, chili, mac & cheese, brownies, birthday cake, etc. But while they are delicious recipes that frequently come out of every cook's kitchen, I really like Kelsey's spin on some of the classics: she puts an Asian spin on traditional chicken noodle soup, roast chicken is jazzed up with Moroccan spices, twice baked potatoes are made with bacon and bleu cheese. This cookbook is a great blend of everyday recipes and also a modern twist on these traditional recipes. I've made several recipes from this cookbook and look forward to trying more. Below are links to three of the recipes from her cookbook that I've previously shared here on the blog.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
