Comfort and Joy is filled with every day recipes inspired by Southern comfort foods. These recipes are made for one to two people, but they can easily be adjusted to feed more people. Which I absolutely love. Because I really rather make half a dozen cookies and not four.
I love Christina's approach to this book. You can hear her voice in her writing, inviting you to try her recipes. It's as if a friend is talking you through the steps to create every day comfort foods in your own little kitchen. You can find all sorts of recipes from breakfast to dinner and even more small batch desserts.The recipes are amazing and simple, the photos are gorgeous.
Where else would you find recipes for eggs baked in baguette, sweet tea fried chicken, or bacon parmesan biscuits! And these are only some of the recipes that she shares with us in her latest book.
I recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to make small batches of food. As much as I love desserts and comfort food as the next person, sometimes, I think I prefer small portions of it so that I won't have to eat the same food for days. Because if I make less of one dish, I can try more of other dishes. No? Just me?
Seriously, give this book a try, especially if you're a fan of Southern comfort foods. =)
Some folks think there's no reason to have small batches of bacon or sweet tea in a cookbook, but you know what? Not everyone that buys a cookbook knows how to make those things. That's why they bought the book in the first place. I think it's great that they're here.
This is a wonderful book for couples and singles, and families too. I especially love Thanksgiving for Two. So smart!
I think I love this cookbook even more than the first. I would highly recommend both her first and second book and her blog for anyone who loves to cook a real meal--from scratch, but only has two mouths to feed.
I would really like to give this book 3.5 stars. There are recipes in here that really don't qualify as such. Bacon for 2, put 4 strips in the oven, is a bit ridiculous. There are a few more like that.
The dinner section is rather short whereas the brunch/breakfast section is the biggest part of the book. I thought the Thanksgiving for 2 was a cute idea and of course more desserts are welcome, however iced coffee and teas for two and the like could have been placed as tips in the book rather than full page recipes with full color pictures no less.
All in all I do like the book but I think it was rushed and/or they just wanted to fill space.
If you want to make the very best bites, grab this book. I just inhaled her baked mac and cheese recipe for dinner. Not only was it super easy to make, it was the best mac and cheese ever to come out of my kitchen. I say that about every recipe I've made from this book. Cinnamon rolls = the best! Sausage pockets (the cover recipe) = the best thing I never knew I needed to make. If you are cooking for two, this is a must have for your cookbook collection.
