Tessa Kiros Cookbooks

Way back in 2010, I was drawn to this cookbook because of it’s cover. While I firmly agree with the age old adage “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” – the reality of being surrounded by books everyday has yielded the reality that when evaluating cookbooks, what the creator puts on the front IS often what is featured inside.

This is a *lovely* recipe collection written from the heart.  Tessa couples her dishes with stories and advice, like you are cooking with a trusted friend. Her connection to her family, in particular the children in her life is evident,  and shows even in the organization,  as it’s categorized by color.

The food is real,  and in many cases so simple you would be nuts not to attempt it. Having enjoyed her work so much, I actually tracked down a previous cookbook:

This too is lovely.  And incorporates her real experiences into her food. Both make great gifts…for you or someone else. đŸ™‚
