"Carreno has impeccable creds on the seemingly ubiquitous yet still growing phenomenon of one-bowl meals. . . . her take on value-added whole grains is deeply authoritative and inspiringly delicious. . . . [the] determinedly 'flavor first' approach draws on influences modern eaters want."
"Carolynn Carreno is perhaps the most honest and knowledgeable cook I know. She is fearless in her pursuit of authenticity and flavor, and she creates recipes that are filled with her unstoppable quest for deliciousness. She is truly a cook's cook."―Jonathan Waxman
"When Carolynn told me she was working on BOWLS OF PLENTY, I knew it was a great idea, and also that she was the one to write it. Carolynn is the rare combination of cook who has a 'chef' mentality. . . . Combining those two sensibilities to create 100 grain-based recipes, well, those will be grain bowls that I will want to eat for a very long time."―Nancy Silverton
"Carolynn Carreno is both a knowledgeable writer and an entertaining one, a writer with a flair for language and a talent for storytelling. She can make any topic interesting, even fun, to read about."―Colman Andrews

- The photos! Beautiful images that not only illustrate the ingredients and what the finished product will look like, they make my stomach growl!
-The ingredients are pretty much all things that I'm familiar with and that I can find easily in my neighborhood markets.
-I've always been a bit intimidated by whole grains and thus, I rarely cook them. Bowls explains each grain and how to easily prepare it.
-Sauces and dressings! Like I said, I mostly cook from my head, and there is a limit to the sauce and dressing ideas stored there. Bowls has a plethora of sauces and dressings that are new to me and a few (Thai Peanut Sauce and Caesar Dressing) that I'm so happy to finally know how to properly make. The Sweet and Tangy Vinaigrette is to die for and oh so simple to make.
-It's flexible! In my world, you must be flexible. Each recipe could be made with extra or leaving out ingredients. You can easily switch proteins or even the dressings. It's a great book to either follow each recipe to a T, or to peruse for inspiration. There is even a "Build Your Own Bowl" page with choices of protein, grains, veggies and condiments to mix and match.
So yes, I recommend "Bowls of Plenty" to cooks of all levels!
I have a serious pet peeve with cookbook publishers and authors which I will explain.
This is the first time I have expressed this grievance, because this is BY FAR the worst
example of this serious fault. SMALL FONT and PALE font color. I was so eager
to get this book, and now I cannot read it without a magnifying glass. Who in the world wants
to read a cookbook which cannot be glanced at on the counter to see the ingredients and
directions without squinting and using extreme reading glasses!!!!!!!
Grrrrr, grrrrrr, grrrrr, Bad, Bad Bad.
Cookbook publishers, get your act together. Beautiful photos mean nothing if the book
I have oodles of cookbooks and this is the worst on my bookshelf, which consists of
literally hundreds of cookbooks. I will probably throw it out, despite its probable worth, because
I CANNOT read its itty bitty pale font with ease.
Seriously, this is the SMALLEST font I have EVER encountered in a cookbook!!!
I can't wait to try the mixed berry crisp and also Birdies Oatmeal Cocktail sounds like the perfect addition to one of my breakfast trays fit for a lady/Lean Luxury. I'm planning on cooking through it and then using it as my Cook Book Club book of the month.
Thank you Carolynn for writing such a great book that is sure to become a well smudged favorite. Lucy
