I almost feel like I am saying good bye to the summer by saying goodbye (for now) to this month’s Cookbook of the Month. But even though I am super excited for the weather to cool down a bit and for fall flavors, I do have to remember that I love ice cream no matter what the season or the weather outside, so I need to remember to get this book out more often!
I covered a wide range of different types of recipes this month, and I’m glad I didn’t just stick to one kind of recipe. There was a custard based ice cream, a non-custard based ice cream, a frozen yogurt and a granita. I always like choosing a wide range of recipes to really get an idea of how good the book is.
I am very pleased with this book, although I already knew I would be, since I’ve made a couple of recipes from it previously. This book did not let me down. There were some I liked more than others, but overall, it was a successful month. And now I have many more recipes marked that I need to get busy and make!!
Kiwifruit Granita – 3 out of 5 stars
Toasted Coconut Ice Cream – 4.9 out of 5 stars
Peach Frozen Yogurt – 4.5 out of 5 stars
I really have been itching to buy a new cookbook, but my husband is having knee surgery this month and will be out of work for a couple of weeks. So needless to say, spending money on a cookbook is not really what I should be doing. So back to my shelf I went, and I decided to choose a book that I haven’t made very much from. So this month’s book is The Joy of Cooking. I’m sure almost everyone has this book on their bookshelf. I didn’t get a copy of this until about a year ago, when I picked it up at a local thrift store. Score!! But I can’t believe I have only made one recipe from it this far. This is going to change over the next month, though!
