Last month we discussed winter themed reads including a historical novel set within the colder seasonal months, a lengthy fantasy novel, and a chilling thriller. (You can read more about them here.) This month, we are going to focus on books that will warm you (and your home) on cold winter evenings.
Here are some awesome selections for winter time comfort food:
Comfort in an Instant: 75 Comfort Food Favorites For Your Pressure Cooker, Multi Cooker, & InstaPot by Melissa Clark – This book is full of cozy weekend recipes and soups. Just perfect to make while it’s snowing outside. With these “set it and forget it” recipes, you can even read by the fire while dinner is cooking!
From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from the Boss Dogg’s Kitchen by Snoop Dogg– Not only is this book fun to read, but it also has a recipe for the ultimate winter comfort food…. baked mac and cheese. Yum!
American Cookie: The Snaps, Drops, Jumbles, Tea Cakes, Bars, and Brownies We Have Loved For Generations by Anne Byrn– There is absolutely nothing better than the smell of fresh baked cookies in the oven. Does anyone disagree? Pick up this book and find your favorite recipe!
See you soon!
