Soups, Stews & Breads by Gooseberry Patch
Cookbooks are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. I love curling up with them the same way I do with gardening seed catalogs in the winter. You can practically see the imagination thought bubble floating above my head as I peruse page after page, delicious feasts of grandeur and delight heaping themselves upon the gleaming table in my mind.
Soups, Stews & Breads did not let me down in this regard. It is packed full of over 400 recipes that just wrap you up in cozy comfort from the second you view the photos.
They begin with Everyday Comfort Soups, which covers old standbys as well new twists you may not have considered. This is followed by a section on Hearty Chowders, Chilis and Stews- these are meant to stick to your ribs and are dense enough to be entire meals unto themselves. The section on Slow Cooker Soups is handy for those of us who can’t always be home to stir a bubbling pot all day. The huge section on Breads, Muffins, Rolls and Biscuits could make me weep with lust. They finish up with a chapter on sandwiches, which everyone knows are the best accompaniment to a great bowl of soup.
The photography is lush and crisp. The recipes are well-written and thoughtfully explained, with lots of quick tips interspersed throughout to help you on your way.
This book is an absolute treasure-trove of ideas. I feel like any cook or baker will get years of scrumptious use from these recipes.
From the publisher:

Now for the best part! The publisher would generously like to give a copy to one of the readers of The Outspoken Yam! Yay!
