I really like recipes that come with pictures. (I want to know what the finished product is supposed to look like.) And I really like recipes that give all the pertinent information up front: number of servings, prep time, steps involved. (I want to know exactly what I’m getting into.) And I really like recipes of familiar food with a little pizzazz. Like caesar salad with tofu croutons, flatbread lasagna, and apple pie bars. And that’s why I really like this cookbook.
