Lick Your Plate by Julie Albert & Lisa Gnat: The gorgeous photography and recipe layouts make Lick Your Plate a pleasure to use. Creative and fun, Albert and Gnat felt like my new BFFs in the kitchen, peppering culinary wisdom (did you know that “lasagna” comes from the Latin word lasanum, meaning “cooking pot”?) throughout this wonderful book.
We really loved that recipes often came with suggestions from within the book to create a complete meal and even provided creative ways to use leftovers. Lick Your Plate will have a permanent place on my cookbook shelf. $32 | Available where books are sold
