Brown Eggs and Jam Jars by Aimee Wimbush-Bourque

Subtitle: Family Recipes from the Kitchen of Simple Bites

Published: 2015

Genre: cookbook

Length: 308 pages

Interest: I saw it recommended on one of the websites I read as a great cookbook to read and not just for the recipes. My local library had it so I thought it would be worth checking out to see if it was worth buying.

Summary: There is a wide variety of recipes that emphasize using fruits and vegetables in season and cooking with whole foods. Each recipe has a paragraph of commentary about the recipe or a story behind its creation or use. The recipes are interspersed with homesteading tidbits and essays on how to involve kids in making food.

Final thoughts: This cookbook is definitely worth looking over. It’s got gorgeous photos on every other page and I found the bits on eating real food and getting kids involved and the seasonality of her recipes quite interesting. That being said, most of the recipes are not something my picky eater would eat. They looked very yummy, but too much mixing of ingredients for his liking.

Title comes from: It evokes the down home, simple life the author leads and espouses in the cookbook

Reading challenges fulfilled: none since I just skimmed this book
