I have gotten to know several Iowa bloggers through our love of food. We all have our own style and preferences when it comes to food and cookbooks, but I think that is what makes this group so great.
Jeni Eats, is also a big fan of her church cookbooks too, for many of the same reasons that I do, and that they have so many "retro" recipes. One of her other favorite, and go-to cookbooks right now is The Spoonriver Cookbook. She loves how the recipes are so approachable.
Modern Rural Living, loves her newest cookbook, The Kitchy Kitchen. She loves all the imagery in the cookbook and can relate to her as a blogger and You Tuber.
In the Kitchen with Jenny, cherishes her family's cookbook that she helped her mother-in-law put together the year before she passed away from cancer. This cookbook not only tells her family's story, but passes along her mother-in-law's traditions. And another thing that makes it so special, is that the front cover has a copy of a water color of the family's home.
Simplify, Live, Love, likes Not Your Mother's Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook. Life is busy and making food ahead of time for your family is a must for Michelle and her family, as well as probably all of ours. This cookbook includes a variety of recipes, ingredients and cuisines, while using less processed foods than the freezer meals of decades ago.
The Sustainable Couple current favorite cookbook is The Elliott Homestead: From Scratch cookbook. This cookbook teaches traditional ways to cook nutritious food. Personally when I saw this cookbook's cover, I thought it screamed Kelli and her passion for whole foods.
Chez Bonne Femme has wrote two cookbooks! Her first, The Bonne Femme Cookbook looks at every day French cooking and her newest, The Braiser Cookbook, shares how to braise through several different methods and ingredients. I highly recommend checking out her Pork Meat Balls with Dijon Cream Sauce recipe from her newest cookbook!
