Kitchen Tour + The Kitchn Cookbook Review




Welcome to my kitchen, my favorite room in our house.  This is the place I make messes, drink coffee, and dance around.  Did you know that dancing and singing makes cooking even more fun? 


This room was a labor of love when we moved in.  It is where most of the renovations happened, and where I spend more hours than I wish to count paining those walls white.  Those now-beautiful white walls used to be terrible dark wood paneling.  Thank goodness for paint. 



Where those pendant lights are, there used to be a wall.  We debated taking it down, but it was seriously the best decision we had to remove it.  I love being able to see the fireplace and have friends and family sit on those comfy couches while I cook.  It makes me feel like I am still a part of the party when I'm cooking!


This is probably my favorite little nook in our house.  It is where I drink my morning coffee and do my quiet time.  It is also where we sit in front of the fire in the winter.  This is where I sit and have coffee with friends.  It is my favorite.  Come over, and this is where we will have coffee! 


It is time for another cookbook review thanks to Blogging for Books!  Seriously, if you blog, go sign up.  All you have to do is write a review for the books you receive for free! It has been the best way to add to my cookbook collection.

The Kitchn Cookbook is one of my favorite additions so far!  One of my favorite part of this cookbook is it is not just recipes.  There are pictures of people's kitchens, cooking tips, how to care for your kitchen, on top of awesome recipes!  It literally has everything you need to cook in the kitchen.



How to Cook Well is one of my favorite sections of this cookbook.  This section includes tips on stocking the pantry and planning meals.  Y'all know how much I love meal planning, and this book has even more great tips.  I also love that it includes guides on what foods to buy organic, as well as essentials for baking, the fridge, and the freezer.



How yummy does this Baked Brie with Blackberries and Sage look? Um yummy!!


Probably my favorite section is the cookbook is the Kitchn's Cooking School.  This section seriously has some of the best tips.  It includes 50 skills that range from cutting tips, adapting recipes for the slow cooker, and some great baking tips.  Each tip is broken down really well to make it easy to understand.

The Kitchn Cookbook is so much more than a cookbook.  It really is a go-to for all things in the kitchen.  It even has great tips on how to set up a kitchen in the most effective way.  This book has taught me more about cooking, and helped me learn techniques that I though I could only watch on Food Network.  I highly suggest this book for anyone who loves spending time in the kitchen.  It is full of great tips and tricks on top of all the great recipes!

What is your most used cookbook?

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.  All opinions and photographs are my own.
