Review: The Pumpkin Cookbook by DeeDee Stovel
The Pumpkin Cookbook by DeeDee Stovel is a perfect recipe book for fall! I don’t want to wish away the summer quite yet, but the fall and all of those yummy foods that come along with it are my absolute favourites. What is notable about this book of pumpkin inspired recipes is the fact that there are many ideas to incorporate the nutritious benefits of this vegetable all year long.
I always like to try a few of the recipes for my reviews because knowing whether or not the instructions are clear and easy to follow is key to any cookbook. Also, taste is a big factor here, and I can honestly say that The Pumpkin Cookbook delivers in its ability to provide simple, tasty recipes for all of the pumpkin-loving chefs out there.
It is sometimes difficult to assess the quality of the images in an eARC, however, I was quite pleased with this one and its ability to convey all of the different types of pumpkins and pumpkin dishes that are included in the recipes. There are some stunning pictures that will absolutely have you drooling for one of those delicious pumpkin breads.
Not only is this a book of recipes and ideas for creating meals and pumpkin inspired treats, it is a guide on all things pumpkin. Readers will learn how to select, store, and prepare pumpkins for enjoyment year round. I have bookmarked so many recipes, that I am definitely considering purchasing a copy of this book.
