Hive Five: Cookbooks!

Now that everyone knows I love to bake, I thought I would share some of my Kindle ebooks that are just for baking.  Every single one of these are excellent cookbooks that I have found for free on Amazon.  Every so often they go back to being free, so just keep an eye out for them!

I picked up this ebook just to have more frosting recipes on hand wherever I go.  Plus, The Cake Doctor uses simple ingredients that I always have on hand.  These recipes are super yummy and super easy.

Book Blurb:

In this special bite-sized e-book, Anne Byrne presents thirty delicious frostings that will take your cakes and cupcakes to the next level. Uncooked frostings: Crushed Peppermint Buttercream, Fresh Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, Peanut Butter Frosting, and an elegant Coffee Buttercream. Cooked frostings: silky Chocolate Ganache, Frosty Lemon Glaze, Penuche Icing, and Anne’s Perfect Chocolate Frosting. Includes a Frosting 101 primer and sidebars throughout with tips, tricks, and advice. Whether spread, poured, or drizzled, these icings make the cake.

100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Fabulous Dishes to Get You Everything You Want in Life

I picked up this ebook because of the fun history behind it.  As an added bonus, the recipes are amazing and simple!!  This is a must have cookbook for every woman.

Book Blurb:
Once upon a time, there was an easy roast chicken recipe, handed down by a fashion editor at Glamour magazine to her assistant, who was in search of a dish to prepare for dinner with her boyfriend. She made the chicken. Her boyfriend loved it. He had seconds. And shortly thereafter, he proposed. But that’s not all: Three more young women at the magazine made the chicken for the men in their lives who then, in short order, popped the question. Glamour published the recipe—dubbing it, naturally, Engagement Chicken—and since then, the magazine’s editors have heard from more than 60 women who have gotten engaged after making the dish.

Commitment-phobes be warned: This bird means business!

Of course, there is more to life than weddings. And there’s more to this cookbook than Engagement Chicken. 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know also includes 99 of the magazine’s other most-loved, best-reviewed dishes, all designed to get you exactly what you want in life, exactly when you want it. From Prove to Mom You’re Not Going to Starve Meat Loaf to Impress His Family Chardonnay Cake, these recipes will help you cook with passion and persuasion. And they’re all written with your real life and real needs in mind. Because whether you’re a novice or an expert, cooking should never be intimidating—and it should always be fun. (end)
