I am an avid reader. Seriously. I always have a book on my iPhone, hardback and either audible or cd book going. Sometimes all at the same time.
And one of my favorite authors is Jane Green. She is one of my have to buy authors. Her books are real and always deal with a real-life problem.
Recently I saw a post on Jane Green’s Facebook that her cookbook, Good Taste, was coming out. Having been an early backer of her cookbook on Kickstarter, I was so excited to learn that she was having it published again for those folks who weren’t able to get in on the early promotion.
I’ve made one of Jane’s recipes before, and loved it so I knew I had to have this cookbook.
It is beautifully written, has wonderful vibrant photos and the recipes are simple yet scrumptious.
For this review I went with Jane’s Sweet and Sour Nuts because I have been on a pecan kick lately. The citrus adds a nice burst of flavor to the dish and these can be served at a party or put in mason jars for gifts.
If you haven’t read a Jane Green book, do it. And if you like audible books, she reads her own and her accent is divine!
