A cookbook that is “Seriously Delish”

Today I’m posting about my new favorite cookbook, “Seriously Delish”.

Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats wrote this colorful cookbook. I’ve met Jessica twice through the Go Blog Social event and must say she is such a genuine doll.

Really, Jessica is so sweet and very personable. She was even willing to take a photo with me at the last Go Blog Social event. She probably thought I was a complete weirdo, but I posed anyways.

If you haven’t read How Sweet It Is blog, you definitely should, especially if you are a lover of food. The blog has so many wonderful recipes that make your mouth-watering.

Earlier this month Jessica released her first cookbook, Seriously Delish. I was so excited when I got it in the mail, despite having only weeks ago ripped out my kitchen for our remodel project.

While I can’t actually try out the recipes in the book I did take time out to read through it a bit.

The first chapter is an introduction about Jessica and why she cooks. I really like the back story and the reasoning behind her recipes and love of food and entertaining.

The book really shows Jessica’s passion for cooking. As she herself said in a talk, that for her she’s either passionate about something, or hates it, it’s never just okay.

The idea of doing only what your truly passionate about is something worth thinking about, obviously for Jessica it has paid off.
