When we started our real food journey, I was overwhelmed. Instead of taking baby steps, I jumped in full force and threw away everything that contained white sugar, white flour, and came in a box or had ingredients I couldn’t pronounce.
The sense of accomplishment was amazing. I felt great. I knew that I was making the best decision for my family. Feeling proud of myself, I walked to pantry to start dinner.
Unless we were going to eat olives with a can of black beans for dinner, I needed recipes. Recipes that were delicious and not taste like cardboard. Recipes that my family would ask for again, but that were simple enough for a mom of littles to create while having babies crawling at her feet.
It’s taken awhile to find cookbooks that I love, but it was worth it. These are my go to cookbooks. Several of them I followed their blogs and loved their recipes so purchasing the cookbook was a no-brainer. Go ahead and add them to your wishlist. Ask for them for your birthday or Christmas, even your un-birthday. They are that good.
