Book Review - "The Loving Kitchen"

Book Description from the publisher:

The Loving Kitchen is a collection of comforting recipes straight from the kitchen of popular food blogger LeAnn Rice.

You know the feeling you get when you’re an overnight guest in someone’s home, and you awaken to a hot-off-the-griddle breakfast? Or when a coworker brings in a pan of her famous brownies to celebrate your recent promotion? Doesn’t it feel great when dinner at the neighbors’ house includes multiple courses of scratch-made recipes and conversation that lingers beyond dessert and that last cup of coffee?

For many of us, these are the moments in which we feel most loved. That’s the idea behind The Loving Kitchen. Get your family’s day started right with LeAnn’s fluffy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, or a bowl of Almond Coconut Granola and yogurt. Keep your favorite sports fans fueled through the entire game with hearty servings of Hot Sausage and Spinach Dip, or toss together a Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad for lunch with your dearest girlfriends.

Want a signature dinner you can serve on those special occasions? Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Orange Cranberry Glaze with Creamy Smashed Baby Potatoes is the perfect meal to celebrate a milestone. LeAnn’s sunny narrative and ideas for bringing people together will remind you that the best meal you’ll ever cook is the one you prepare as an act of love.

My Review:
"The Loving Kitchen" is a wonderful collection of recipes that LeAnn Rice has compiled in a beautiful book filled with photographs to go along with the recipes. There is a section of breakfast foods, a section of bread recipes, a section for soups and sandwiches and a section for desserts, among others.  LeAnn shares a remembrance or a little side note with each recipe that she has included in this book that makes this cookbook so personal.  Cinnamon scones, baked crab dip, cheese overland macaroni and cheese, apple-cranberry chutney, and chocolate peanut butter cream pie are just a few of the many delicious recipes that are included and ones that I cannot wait to make and enjoy.  None of the recipes seem overly difficult and they require common ingredients; this combination results in delicious food to share with family and friends.
