I was contacted by the one and only Greta Podleski, co-author (with her sister, Janet) of the Looneyspoons Cookbooks, and she asked if I would be interested in reviewing a copy of their latest cookbook, “The Looneyspoons Collection.”
With the seasons (supposedly…we got snowed on again today, so much for spring break) changing, I find myself shelving my recipes for the same old tired roasts and casseroles and I delve into new, fresh finds that feel light and springy. I am always looking for inspiration for cooking and spend a lot of time scouring cooking blogs and Pinterest for recipe ideas, so I was really excited to have the chance to review “The Looneyspoons Collection” cookbook. It arrived on my doorstep and from page one, it was a delight to pore over. The pages are all full-colour, a nice heavy weight of paper, and are filled with beautiful photos and lots of fun facts plastered all over the pages. It almost reads like a coffee table book or high-quality magazine and is just really fun to read.
I made their “FULLafel Patties” recipe and it was fantastic! It was really easy, it required ingredients that I already had in my pantry and spice rack, and the kids and husband gobbled it up in a flash. I will totally make them again, but in a double batch so we actually have leftovers!
The cookbook is a really great addition to anyone’s collection because it has such a great variety of recipes: sides, salads, main dishes and lots of vegetarian options, all with a focus on whole foods and healthy ingredients.
I am happy to be able to offer a copy of “The Looneyspoons Collection” cookbook to one lucky commenter. Just tell me your favourite spring/summer-time meal and you’ll be entered to win!
The contest closes on March 30, 2012 and the winner, chosen at random, will be contacted via email.
I received a copy of the cookbook for this post, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
