Book Review: The Book Blogger's Cookbook

What do books and food and blogging have in common? Well, Tristi, of course! And so what better place to find a review of The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook than here? There are other sites reviewing it, and doing a mighty fine job of it, and I think it makes total sense that I should be included on that list. Seriously, my middle name is BooksandBlogsandFood. But it was hard to fit on a birth certificate, so my mom decided to cut her losses and use Paige instead.

But I digress.

The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a compilation of recipes of foods mentioned in books that have recently been published by some of the most exciting up-and-coming authors I've seen for a long time. Compiler Christy Dorrity had a unique idea - she found book bloggers who had reviewed those books, asked their permission to quote the review, and then partnered the review with the recipe and a bit about the book. What a great way to join together the things that feed our bodies with the things that feed our minds.

You might notice as you flip through the book that two of the quotes are from me. That was a lot of fun. It was also fun to read the other reviews and then to salivate over the recipes. Yes, salivating can be fun.

If you like books, if you like to eat, if you like eating while you read, this book is a must-have.

FTC: I received a free download of this book in exchange for my review and was compensated in no other way. I was not paid for the quotes inside the book, nor was I paid to review the original books.

This sounds like a terrific book and I'm a sucker for cookbooks. Bummer thing is that I haven't converted to an e-reader. I'm a luddite in that respect!

I love getting new cookbooks and trying different recipes! (Looking forward to yours too, Tristi.)

Debra Jayne East said...

Sounds like a must have for someone like me who gets her best recipes from the internet! I spend a lot of time surfing for good food and this would be great! The free kindle is a plus and I sure could use one.

What an excellent idea! I wonder if other authors go for the least time consuming, easiest to make meals as well! Too much time in the kitchen means less time on the computer. :)

Tristi Pinkston said...

James, it's actually Tristin Paige, but good on you for remembering my middle name!

Marie Higgins said...

I love cookbooks...but what I'd really like to find (or have someone make) is one for people who are hypoglycemic. Yep, that's me! I hate it and want to fix it! But Tristi, knowing you like I do, I KNOW you'll do great with this cookbook.

Oh...and I've always wanted a Kindle. (grins)

Books, food, and blogs. Doesn't get any better than that!

Tristi Pinkston said...

This isn't the cookbook I wrote, Marie - rather, it's one I'm helping to promote, but yes, mine is pretty marvelous. :)

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Sounds wonderful! Can't wait to read it.

Stefanie said...

This sounds like such a fun cookbook. You're right. Books and food are a perfect combination.

Amber Lynae said...

I would say our middle names are very similar... Reading and eating are how I would love to spend everyday.

Great review Tristi I will have to check out the book.
