In recent years, I have viewed cooking as a chore. It was a chore I took no pleasure in, most likely due to the fact that I had no confidence in my abilities. I am happy to say that my feelings about cooking have completely changed this year. My daughter and I began cooking together and cooking no longer seemed like a chore. My time with my daughter is a blessing! I began looking forward to our meal planning and the time we were spending together in the kitchen. This new interest in cooking influenced a new addition for me – cookbooks! Yes, I now have a very full baker’s one! It had a great deal of empty space in the past!
We had the opportunity to review the Ultimate Recipes ebook 5000 recipes last week. This ebook is just what its name implies – it’s the ULTIMATE recipe ebook! When I originally opened the ebook, the first words that came to mind were, “Oh my goodness!” There are so many mouth-watering recipes which I knew instantly that my family would love. I began making a brief list of the recipes that I want to prepare in the upcoming weeks, including Apple Pie Coffee Cake, Chicken Divan, and Apple Glazed Pork Roast. With my husband traveling so often now, I have a real interest in using my crock pot on a regular basis. 470 crock pot recipes! Let the meal planning begin!
The Ultimate Recipes ebook 5000 recipes contains recipes from the following categories:
1000 Atkins Diet Recipes
101 Camping & Outdoor Recipes
101 Recipes For The Deep Fryer
111 Egg Recipes
120 Lip-Smacking Good Jam Recipes
300 Chicken Recipes
470 Crock Pot Recipes
65 Tried And True Traditional Amish Recipes
Cat Head Biscuits And Garlic Fried Chicken
Chocolate Recipes For Chocolate Lovers
And Many More .....
There are so many recipes that I do wish that a Table of Contents was included in each of the recipe files. There are several that have a Table Contents and some that do not. It would be a huge time saver for me to know exactly what page I need to go to.
Included within the ebook is The Complete Library of Cooking: A 5 Volume Set Covering Everything You Need To Know About Cooking. This is an enormous reference guide to cooking. I needed this! This volume set provides an immense amount of information about food and preparation. My goal is to not only learn to cook a variety of foods, which this ebook is certainly going to help me do, but I really want to learn about cooking as well.
I laughed to myself when I thought about what this ebook would look like if it were printed. It would take up my entire baker’s rack! Personally, I love the fact that recipes are contained in an ebook and therefore, take up less space. However, I do like to print out the recipes I use most often so I can easily pull them out when I am ready to cook. I do not like to keep my computer near the kitchen – God forbid something gets on the keyboard!
