Book Review: The Girl Who Ate Everything

Book Review The Girl Who Ate Everything

NOTE: The following post is not a sponsored post, nor does it contain affiliate links. I purchased this book of my own accord and all opinions are truly, honestly my own. No one is paying me to rave about this. 

One of my…goals…{I suppose you could call it} for this year is to be more intentional with the way I cook. It’s easy to fall into that cooking slump where the day drags on and suddenly it’s an hour till supper and you have no idea what to cook. I don’t enjoy cooking as much when this happens and in order to crawl my way out of that slump, I decided to be more intentional with my cooking. For me, that means planning out a weekly meal plan and it also meant updating some of my cookbooks.

The best part about cookbooks for me is the pictures. I love seeing beautiful photos of the food I want to make and often the photo is what helps me decide I want to make the recipe in the first place. So when I was on a mission to buy myself some better cookbooks, I knew The Girl Who Ate Everything was likely going to be right up my alley. It did not disappoint! Seriously, I have cooked from this book every single week since I got it. It has chapters for appetizers, breads and rolls, breakfast, main dishes, salads and sides, and, {of course!} desserts. Each recipe has a photo and contains simple ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. {A plus for a busy budgeting mom!} The photography is beautiful and the layout is simple and clean cut, making cooking from it so enjoyable!

I don’t think I’ve had a complaint yet from my hubby after cooking something from this book. Cooking is so much more fun when you know it will be a hit with your family! I have cooked my way through most of the main dishes and have definitely found some favorites. A few of the recipes include: Peanut Butter “Cheese” Ball, One Hour Rolls (a definite family favorite! I will never make any other type of roll!), Crème Brulee French Toast (not as fancy as it sounds; so simple to throw together!), Creamy Asparagus Chicken, Corn Souffle, and Cookie Crusted Chocolate Chip Cake.  If you are looking to upgrade your cookbooks and want something that is family-friendly, I highly recommend this book!

What are your go-to cookbooks?
