This is a gorgeous cookbook! It is filled with beautiful pictures that make the food look so appealing and just so homey and comforting. There is also a nice variety of recipes in this book and tips included in regards to the ingredients and recipes to try when and where. This is like a typical cookbook as far as the chapters, as there is one for dips and snacks, another chapter for side dishes, another for sweets, and another for slow-cooked recipes. There is also a chapter devoted to recipes made in a 9x13 pan. What makes this cookbook unique is that each of the recipes is specifically chosen for this book with the idea that it is going to be shared with a group/taken to a potluck. Therefore, the recipes will travel well and can be prepped ahead of time. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to spice up your next potluck!
