Seasonality is now more important than ever for foodies and home cooks and this new book is both an exhaustive recipe resource and an authoritative produce guide. With 1000 recipes organized by season, and "Season's Best" features highlighting which produce tastes amazing right now and how to make the most of it, Cooking Season by Season is an essential resource for being in touch with the flavors of the season.
  • Features over 750 full colour images
  • Includes Recipe Choosers for each chapter listing all the dishes that can be cooked for each seasonal ingredient
MY OPINION:
When I saw this book, I knew I had to get it. I love knowing what foods are in season and best to be consumed. With my love for cooking, I was eager, and chose two recipes.
 First main course. Of course.
Tomato, Bean and Zucchini Stew
I don't eat vegetarian often. I'm a meat chick. Well, you should know that by my Beef Ambassadorship.... anyways, I enjoyed this dish. The beans filled me up the way meat does, and the best part is, being a diabetic beans are really good for me. (They're high in fiber.) Plus, I'm a bit of a zucchini-virgin... I mean, I've had it, but never really cooked it before... so didn't know what to expect. Was really friggin' good!  
Best part is, the whole house smelled so good for hours afterwards. (Seriously, it's 3 hours past and it still smells amazing in here.) 
So now onto the second dish I tackled. Dessert.
Apple and Blackberry Brown Betty
OMG!! This was divine!!!
I can't have tons of sugar and this only had a couple teaspoons in the whole thing. It was sweetened naturally with the fruit and ice cream. It was so good! It hit the spot after that main dish. And it's also one I think I will make again and again.
I look forward to cooking some more out of this book. I definitely look forward to checking out each season as it comes, and mark my words, I will be cooking seasonally from it!

  2. A dessert with only a few teaspoons of sugar is one I can have. It looks delicious!

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
