I’m going to brag on a fellow blogger’s new cookbook. Karina’s Family Table Tastebook by Karina Allrich. This book is beautiful and full of great looking food. I can’t wait to start cooking!
I first found Karina on the internet as the Gluten Free Goddess. I had just been told I could not eat gluten and had no idea what to look for when cooking. I was very nervous and scared about the prospect of having to change my entire diet but learned within an hour of finding out just why it needed to be done. I had taken a vitamin that contained gluten and had that same terrible reaction that often occurred: the swelling of my abdomen, the immediate draining of all energy, the aches and pains and the headaches. Now at least I knew the source of these problems. I had to change my diet immediately and I was lucky enough to find a great resource to help me.
I read Karina’s blog often in the beginning. Not knowing what a blog really was or how it worked I did not sign up to receive emails when she posted new things. Learn from my mistake. If you find a blog you like sign up so you don’t miss a thing! After finding out there were so many more food items that irritated my system I again went back to the now Karina’s Kitchen blog. What great information, food advice and recipes.
Karina recently posted something new on a Tastebook. That sounded interesting but I had no idea how cool this was. I followed the link on her blog and ordered this wonderful cookbook. I was able to choose the cover I liked from an assortment. I could even dedicate it to someone if it was a gift. Well this gift was for me. When the book arrived it was all wrapped up in this beautiful green paper with my name on it. It was like opening a special treasure just for me. Every recipe she created has a photo that she took. Love that! Here is the cool thing, the book is spiral bound so it can be opened and I can add more recipes as they become available. How cool is that. It’s a living cookbook.
Thank you Karina for creating a wonderful cookbook, finding such a cool company as Tastebook and for sharing it all with us.
