My Review

Another cookbook in the 4 Ingredients series by Kim McCosker.  Each recipe has four (at the most) regular household ingredients and each recipe is accompanied by a lovely photo which I always appreciate.  It helps if you know what the finished product should look like!

The cookbook is divided into the following sections:

  • Breakfasts and Brunches
  • Snacks and Lunches
  • Slow Cookers and Casseroles
  • Pots and Pans
  • Roasts and Bakes
  • Soups and Stews
  • Pizza, Pies and Pasta
  • Sweet Treats
 There are some terrific recipes for main courses such as the Honey Baked Chicken and Garlic Cream Shrimp.  The Leek and Potato Soup recipe is one to try for sure!  All of the desserts sound amazing particularly the Key Lime Pie and Scones.  This cookbook is a wonderful addition to your cookbook collection!  Keep an eye out for it in February.
