If there is one thing I love, it’s got to be cooking (and baking). The other day I was looking for some new recipes, especially now that the summer is coming up. I love simple, quick recipes, that I can do easily when coming home after work. I really often look at online recipes to find myself some inspiration, though love having an actual book at hand. As much as I’m a total lover of the internet and accessing new information in almost-real-time, I still love having actual books when reading – old-fashioned, I know.
I’m quite the little fan of Donna Hay when it comes to cooking and had to buy the new book. Actually, I bought a different one first, and my mom bought the one depicted on the above photo. But she decided she liked the recipes more in my book, and vica versa. It’s always great, when you’ve got several cooking-lovers in the family and close-by and can easily switch around what was just bought. If you haven’t already checked out the website, you really should: Donna Hay has got some amazing recipes!
Not only am I a little fan of Donna Hay, but also of Gwyneth Paltrow. I keep checking her blog, goop.com, to see what new recipes she has put up. And what’s easier then checking at all times? Exactly, a book. The other day, while looking for her book online on Amazon, I instantly decided to buy some american measuring-spoons as well. A must-have, for some of the amazing recipes. You might have noticed from my last recipe, that I used the measuring spoons to get the perfect end-result. Investing a little money can sometimes bring such great results – so if you’re still looking for some measuring-spoons, I can only recommend these ones!
Where do you get your cooking inspiration, any favorite books, blogs or websites? I’m always happy to receive new tips!
