I won a copy of this book through Goodreads! I give it a 4 out of 5 stars because I felt some of the recipes had ingredients I have never heard of nor would likely be easily obtainable where I live. I thought it was a well thought through cookbook and that the majority of recipes would be easy to make and functional in everyday life. The personal stories Curtis Stone included in the book were relevant and I believe mealtime is a great way to bring a family together. This cookbook not only has the meal recipes, it includes quite a few extras from sauces and spice blends to pizza dough. There is nothing worse than having a great recipe that tells you to go to the grocery store and find some silly paste or dough when it could just as easily be made from pantry ingredients so I appreciated those recipes as well. Good Food, Good Life: 130 Simple Recipes You’ll Love to Make and Eat is the perfect title for this book as it contains all sorts of recipes from breakfasts and snacks to dinners and desserts and I would highly recommend it as a great gift to anyone.
