Hi Cooking Friends– I’m guessing that’s most of you. For my birthday this week two friends gave me cookbooks– and they are the best! I’ve already made the Moroccan Chicken from one of them and it was so good! Thought you’d like to see them.
Checked this book out from the New Book shelf at the library. I started to dog-ear pages (I know– in a library book??!!) of recipes I wanted to try and it was half the book! So when Jenon dropped it off as a gift I was jumping up and down! Everything is so so beautiful and just unique enough. Amazing photography and little garnishing touches.
And this book I browsed through at a store on vacation– but being the cheapskate (frugal??) person that I am, couldn’t bare to buy it on first acquaintance. But after I described it to my friend Joy, she scooped it up for me! Everything in the book is a big board or platter full of ingredients– S’mores Platter, Beach Board, Mediterranean Board… And I have the Big Board from breakfast a few weeks back to fill up with all these yummy recipes! Such fun ideas more than recipes! I think you’d love it!

Hi Chris– I know our kids in Wisconsin can pull up a mean cheese board!!
What wonderful gifts Rhonda. Enjoy. 😍
Thanks Brigid– What have you been cooking up lately?? hugs!
Mostly salads Rhonda- greek and potato. Not a lot of cooking as weather has been hot for more than 2 weeks. 😎 Lots of beach picnics. Making the most if it. 🌼
Sounds perfect Brigid– summer’s here! xox
Thanks so much for these recommendations Rhonda. I will look for these in our Library! Aren’t cookbooks getting more and more beautiful these days? xo
Hi Debra– Agree! I’m having the best time just pouring over the pictures in these books! Have you been baking much lately??
Not baking lately, but cooking. Did some mozza pesto tomato pizzas yesterday, and overnight marinaded some nice chicken and beef bbq skewers with veggies and pineapple. 🙂 You?
These look wonderful, Rhonda! What incredible gifts these would make! xo
Thanks Lisa– It’s been fun to read through them! Loved your Memorial Day post. thanks thanks.
Well Happy Birthday, Rhonda!!! These cookbooks look great! I’ll have to check them out! I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of these recipes in your blog posts real soon! 😊

YES!!!!! You got your board book! What a thoughtful friend.
Yep– it was a sweet gift! When is your birthday Lacey?? think I’ve only seen kid’s birthdays in your posts!! xox
Haha that’s probably true. Mine is in Jan right after all the holiday hoopla. By then I’m over all the going and doing and not really wanting to celebrate it much.
Hmm… Can you delay it a month?? Seems like everyone could use a birthday pick me up in February!! hugs dear girl.
That is such a great idea. I think I really may consider that, thank you.
When is your birthday Rhonda? Mine was also around that time, June 2nd. I wish you all the best, belated happy birthday, I hope you had a lovely day!
These look like great books! xox
Mine’s May 29th– Happy Birthday to you!! I saw the cake you made– Amazing! Birthday hugs from here!
