Another Cookbook Review! My New Roots by Sarah Britton

  There is something relaxing about reviewing cookbooks. I love reading fiction but my writer's brain is always at work, analyzing, wondering if I can write something as beautiful as what I'm reading, or mentally correcting things that aren't well written. When I read a cookbook the my brain slows down. I enjoy the pictures and get inspired by the recipes. It makes me excited to get in the kitchen and create something for dinner. Because of that, I sent away for another cookbook to review, and it is so beautiful!

 My New Roots by Sarah Britton is everything a cookbook should be. The pictures are stunning, the recipes unique, and it lays open well which is pretty important in my opinion! It is full of plant-based recipes and is divided by seasons. It's perfect for leafing through for inspiration but it also has an index in the back so you don't have to remember what "season" the recipe you want is from.

  The book is brimming with information on different ingredients and I was thrilled to see charts on how to cook more types of grains and legumes than I knew existed. It has step by step instructions for  making nut butters, sprouting grains, making your own Ghee and more. That and the pictures was enough to make me fall in love. Everything about it makes me want to go to a farmer's market and cook my way through the seasons.

   Now that I've said what I love about this book I need to mention one other thing. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet. I found all sorts of dishes that I want to make but most of them require produce I may not always have on hand or grains that aren't at my normal market. I'm slowly collecting ingredients and I see myself using the charts and basic instructions regularly but most of the recipes will be for special occasions or when I am in the mood for something fresh and new.

  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to cook with the seasons and explore new flavors (or anyone like me who gets excited by illustrated instructions on how to prepare chickpeas).

I received a copy of this book to review from Blogging for Books.

Jade’s empathetic kindness flooded him with emotions he didn’t know he had and isn’t sure he wants to deal with. It would be the easiest thing in the world to leave and let Jade be a whisper in his past. He can exit now and regain his anonymity, or he can risk everything to stay and face her again. It’s not an easy choice, and when he’s about to decide, a woman from his past shows up, making his decision even more difficult. What really happened when Logan disappeared during Empath?

Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her. Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings. When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal. Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.

Empath is now FREE on most sales channels.
