The Loving Kitchen by Leann Rice

The Loving Kitchen by Leann Rice
Published by Thomas Nelson

Open up this cookbook to find a bevy of wonderful recipes just waiting to be created in your kitchen.  Leann Rice has created a cookbook that any woman  can use to create wonderful home cooked meals reminiscent of your grandmother's cooking and a comfortable home.  The concept behind the recipe book is a grouping of comfortable recipes straight from the author/blogger's kitchen.  Ms. Rice includes such recipes as:  Creamed corn, fried chicken, oven-baked BBQ ribs, various sandwiches and soups, and berries and cream layer cake, and oh so much more!  I'm so excited about this book, because the recipes have easily attainable ingredients and are realistic for my family. 

Ms.. Rice also includes a section on reaching out and gathering in.  It's about showing love to your family and friends through your cooking.... The book also includes well done food photography, and as a photographer that is one of the first things I look at.  I only wish every recipe had a photo or that there was a photographic index of every recipe.  I know this book will be a staple in my home for the coming years.... I think I'll wear it out.... maybe I should have it spiral bound so that I can use it more handily... who knows.... I just know I'll be using it quite often.

This book was received from the publisher, and I was not required to give a positive review.  All opinions are my own.
