Love & Lemons Cookbook Review: A Unique Take on Veggies

Love & Lemons Cookbook Review: A Unique Take on Veggies

For the longest time, I was not about buying cookbooks. Like- WHY would I buy a cookbook when I could find a similar recipe online for free?

Because ...

  • It's better to get crumbs on a book (rather than an electronic device)
  • It provides immediate cooking inspiration (so you don't have to scour Pinterest)
  • There's something about having a physical book that makes the cooking experience more enjoyable. I have SO many e-cookbooks that I NEVER look at because cookbooks on Kindle are the worst.

So... I bought Love & Lemons. I came across the Love & Lemons blog & found Jeanine's recipes to be a unique take on veggies.  It wasn't just the basic spinach & kale salads - there was some ingenuity. The blogger is a Texan, so she has quite a few taco recipes (YAHOO!) Also, her recipes are constructed so that the leftovers can be used for another meal (i.e. salad one day, soup the next day.)

Often times, I find myself without meat in my fridge & I want to whip something together quick. What I like about the author she's not fully vegetarian, so her recipes (although vegetarian) can have a "meaty" taste.

The book is broken down by types of veggies, so you can just base your recipes on what you have your fridge. The photography is amazing & inspires me to cook.

Good for..

  • Healthy eating
  • Veggie inspiration
  • If you enjoy grocery shopping

Not so good for...

  • Super quick recipes
  • You don't have a high turnover on your veggies
  • You're a heavy meat eater

Would I recommend? Yes- the book looks beautiful on the shelf & the recipes are delicious & inspiring.
