Super Natural Every Day - Cookbook Review

Source: blissfulbblog.com via Melissa on Pinterest

I love cookbooks. Have I said that before? They have evolved so much in recent years. The anecdotes that accompany each recipe in many modern cookbooks draw me right into the kitchen with the author, with all the smells, sounds and comfort that home cooking elicits. I love reading where a recipe came from, getting insight into its evolution or what the dish means to the creator.

Super Natural Every Day didn't fail to reel me into Heidi Swanson's San Fransisco kitchen. While I noted which recipes I wanted to try, I got a glimpse into her culinary life, like an old friend catching up over tea and muffins. Which I have to say, where healthy and delicious. Not at all dry (don't ya hate a dry muffin?) quite flavorful, and the recipe was straightforward.

On the whole, the recipes in Super Natural Everyday were a nice balance of unfussy and just sophisticated enough to not put off the novice cooker. I enjoy trying new dishes, expanding my repertoire and Super Natural Every Day was a welcome invitation to do so with a wide variety of fresh ingredients and lovely photography.
