I was lucky enough to be able to review this Cook Book before its official release! And I have to say we have already used several of the recipes. The very first recipe I tried was the recipe for Our Best Bites Creamy Corn Chowder.

And it turned out brilliantly if I do say so myself! Seriously?It was a hit with all?but one. Remember this post? He hates soup! But everyone else LOVED it! It was the perfect comfort food for a cold February day!

And then?just because?we decided to top dinner off with an awesome summery drink. Even though it was frigid outside?it was fun to pretend we were on a tropical island sipping a *fancy drink* aka Brazilian Lemonade.

Now THIS was a hit with EVERYONE! I may or may not have made me another batch the next day when the hubs and kids were at school and work?but I?ll never tell!

Thanks Sara and Kate for letting me give your Cook Book a try! I love how great your recipes are and love all the tips and helpful hints you placed throughout the book. There are also several new recipes in the book that are not on Our Best Bites site!

Here are some details about the book!
- Published by Deseret Book under their Shadow Mountain Label
- In addition to containing the most popular recipes from the Our Best Bites blog, the book features about 40 new recipes and variations that will stay exclusive to the book (like the Black Bean Mango Salsa seen in the picture below!)

We wanted the book to be modeled after the concept of our blog, which means that in addition to recipes, you also get tons of tips and mini tutorials. For example, see how to easily pit a cherry on the same page as Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream.

Other great features include:
-A Rollover Ingredient list: which gives you ideas for what to make when you buy a unique ingredient and don't use the whole thing in one recipe.
-Recipe Tags: to easily spot things like quick and easy meals, or things you can make ahead.
-Serving suggestions: references for accompanying dishes to make meal-planning easy!
We had SO much fun putting this project together and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you! We'll be sharing more details and updates as the release approaches!

**I was not paid in any way for this post. I did however receive a copy of Our Best Bites Cook Book of my own to review. All opinions stated are mine. I have not and will never give a positive review for an item(s) that I personally would not like or purchase.
