Well, it’s official…I’m a Food Affairiate! I was blessed to be selected as one of the Bloggers to receive a preview copy of Beth Aldrich’s new book, Real Moms Love to Eat! Now this is a review that I can really get into, one that involves food!
First, I have to say that Beth is a vibrant, exhilarating writer. Before she sent me a copy of the book, I thought “I hope this isn’t just another cookbook”. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The book is not only about recipes, it’s also about Beth, her family, and her love affair with food. We get insight into why Beth wrote the book, and why she cares so deeply about each and every one of us. She teaches us that it’s ok to love food, and we can still be healthy and happy while still indulging in the food we love.
This is definitely not your mother’s cookbook. It has fun-filled pages that not only teach you what you should eat, but why. Beth’s writing style is very fluid and entertaining, you can almost imagine her smiling as she put pen to paper. The advice that she gives is not pushy or rude, but she definitely gets her point across. I absolutely LOVE her whimsical stories, especially the one about the cupcakes ( you’ll have to read the book to find out what I mean 😉 ). I’m also excited to find out that I can still eat chocolate, actually…I’m required to eat chocolate! One of the recipes that I’m dying to try is Real Mom Peach-Blueberry Crumble, it sounds divine! Another is Pork Tenderloin with Apple Chutney. But first I need to get my husband on board with all of this, he’s definitely the cook in our house 😉
I’ve actually read the book twice, yes twice! I feel invigorated every time I open the book to continue the food journey with Beth. One thing that I’ve found is that I’m learning new things the second time around. You don’t find that very often with books these days. Make sure you stop by Beth’s Real Moms Love to Eat website to pre-order her book for a chance to win fabulous prizes!About Beth Aldrich
