But she also knows that you won’t sacrifice quality for quickness.

Cooks&Books&Recipes Featured Cook Alice:
Hello, Cooks&Books&Recipes readers! I’m so happy to be here with you all today. When I heard that RecipeGirl, Lori Lange, was coming out with a cookbook, I wanted to get my hands on it immediately. If you don’t read her blog or haven’t heard of her, Lori Lange (aka RecipeGirl) is pretty popular. She went from being an elementary school teacher, to a stay-at-home-mom, to a recipe developer and food blogger. Lori started her blog in 2006 and now has a huge following. I think it’s her easy-going and approachable style and her simple, straightforward, and delicious recipes that have her fans coming back for more.
When I received the The Recipe Girl Cookbook in the mail, I was glued to it for a few days straight, just flipping through all 300+ pages. From cocktails to sides & salads to dinner ideas to my favorite “20 Themed Menus for Entertaining” (I love that Lori put this into her cookbook), RecipeGirl has it all covered. And I am continuing to enjoy The Recipe Girl Cookbook: it is a great one for home cooks at all levels, with recipes you’ll probably be cooking over and over again.
