Today I am starting a new feature here on my blog called “Cookbook Corner”!
“Lick The Bowl Good” By: Monica Holland
“Lick The Bowl Good”, as its title suggests, offers delicious “Classic Home-Style Desserts With A Twist” – and boy does it ever! Just flipping through the cookbook, you will see delicious looking photos and recipes for desserts such as “Grandma’s Chocolate Cake”, “Fresh Strawberry Cake” (the amazing cake featured on the cover), “Banana Pudding Cheesecake”, “Pecan Pie Mini Cupcakes”, “Midnight Chocolate Chip Cookies”, “Snickerdoodle Cream Cheese Blondies”, and “Lemon Shortbread Tart” to name just a few.
When I first got this cookbook, I immediately grabbed my Post-It note flags and started marking recipes I wanted to try. About halfway through the cookbook though I realized that I was marking every recipe! Ha!
The cookbook is beautifully done and includes “Bakers Notes” throughout the book to help the reader enhance their knowledge of baking. It also includes a personal look (along with pictures) of the author, Monica Holland. Flipping to page 77 (“Brown Sugar Shortbread”) and seeing the picture of Monica and her cute little boy Hayden will really warm your heart…as well as make you want to try the recipe with your kids!
Monica Holland is a food blogger (like me) and a dessert lover (hello – like me) and her first cookbook brings the best of both worlds together, as well as getting a personal glimpse into Monica’s life and family.
I highly recommend this cookbook to people who know how to “Lick The Bowl Good”…
