The Forest Feast and The Forest Feast For Kids are wonderful cookbooks!! They are full of easy to understand tips that are helpful to beginning and experienced cooks. Beautiful photographs highlight the recipes and the tips. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious that you want to make whether or not you eat vegetarian. The recipes are not intimidating for beginning cooks (or kids) and the photographs make you want to dig in.
I made the Roasted Vegetable Gnocchi and it was delicious!! Easy to make, with the most time consuming part being chopping the vegetables, the meal came together quickly. Roast eggplant, peppers, and onions are combined with gnocchi and cheese. Once it was on the table my family inhaled it!! A delicious, easy to make meal for Meatless Monday that I will make frequently.
These cookbooks are 4+ and the recipe I made was definitely a 4, highly recommend both!!
