The Looneyspoons Collection by Janet and Greta Podleski

Cookbooks are generally not that exciting for me, but I absolutely loved this one. First of all, let me start off with how humorous this book is. Each recipe has a crazy name to emphasize its taste or ingredients. Such names include: Shrimply Irresistible, Do the Chunky Chicken, Tickle Me Elbows, or Everybody Loves Raysins. The authors also add in some of their own food humor throughout the book. I never thought I would laugh so much reading a cookbook. Besides, look at the title; I think that says it all.

There are over 325 different recipes in this collection divided into14 different categories. I love the fact that every other page has a picture of the dish. I don't know about you, but I love visually seeing what it is I am about to make. Scattered throughout the cookbook are recipe tips, nutrition nuggets, and other usual and interesting tidbits. Every recipe has a calorie, fat, protein, carbohydrate....count.

I have already made a few recipes and from this book and they were delicious. I found the recipes easy to read and very accurate in detail. I appreciate the fact that there are healthier recipes, some gluten free and vegetarian dishes( for my budding 13yr old vegetarian). I plan to make many more recipes from this book. Definitely a worthwhile cookbook .
