Cookbooks are recipe suggestions and authentic is just an interpretation. My favorite recipes are listed below each cookbook and it just means that, MY FAVORITE and the ones I go back to time and time again. I’m still working my way through these cookbooks myself. Poke around, have fun, and hope you end up adding some of these delicious recipes to your menu. Here are the cookbooks that scratched my travel itch during quarantine.

Like, I’m glad this dumpster fire of a year is coming to an end, but I know that 2021 has the potential to become garbage, too. I’d like to believe that most of the madness and sadness are behind us. So, even though I’m flipping off 2020 and can’t wait to put it behind me, I am also trying to remain optimistic because it’s all I’ve got.
