Around the Table by Martina McBride

Around the Table is not only a cookbook but also an entertaining guide. Martina has tons of ideas for throwing parties all throughout the year and gives great tips for what to stock in your pantry for last minute get togethers. She also has a game plan laid out for prepping and setting up a party. This is such key advice because timing is not my strong suit. Once again the pictures are beautiful which is such a selling point for me! This book is so well put together and just screams grace and poise. Love love love it!

But it Here
Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist

This book is actually an assortment of essays with recipes included, not just a regular cookbook. She writes about family, friendships, faith, and the struggles in between. It's endearing to read something so honest and open. You can't help but to want to be Shauna's best friend when reading this book.  She shares the joys and pits of life all while encouraging the reader to have faith through it all. I identified with many of the emotions she was sharing and even some situations she has been in. I loved feeling like I could be encouraged by her life by reading this heartfelt book.  She has a real passion for cooking and the way she writes makes everything sound delicious. I tried several of her recipes on the very same day that I read them. They were scrumptious! I make her bacon wrapped dates all the time and I also love her risotto! Everyone who wants a quick read filled with scripture, quirky stories, and go-to recipes should pick up this book.
