Country Heaven Cookbook: Family Recipes & Remembrances by Ava Miles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Country Heaven Cookbook: Family Recipes and Remembrances by Ava Miles is a 2014 self publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the author and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is a collection of down home goodness Ava Miles as compiled from her own recipes and those featured int eh Country Heaven novel. I have lots of cookbooks on my kindle but I have never reviewed any of them because I didn't really know how to go about reviewing a cookbook. But, since this in conjunction with on of Ava's novels I thought I might give it a shot.
First of all all these recipes sound really yummy. I come across that a lot in cookbooks but then when I start looking at the ingredients and the difficulty level I have that “it looks good on paper” thought. If I actually attempted the recipe... well it wouldn't come out quite like the cookbook said it would. Not so with this one. These are recipes that pretty much still to the ingredients we all usually have on hand and are awesome desserts, breads, and pastries. These recipes are not overly complicated and I had my tummy growling especially thinking about those stuffed apple crepes.
This book also contains an extended except from Country Heaven the novel which features a few of these dishes. This book is nice companion to the Country Heaven novel. Also, ( sold separately- LOL) The Country Heaven Song Book is also available.
The only compliant I had was the lack of photos. ( This could be because of the digital copy I have)
This one gets 4 stars.
