Jo Kenny, cookbook author and blogger (Girl Eats World), has released her second cookbook, Girl Eats Good: hearty, nourishing, stress free recipes . The cookbook is filled with fairly easy recipes using standard ingredients that are easy to find and cook with. It isn’t clear why these recipes are stress free – some cooks stress whenever they are obligated to cook, so is there a way to measure a recipe due to the stress level of preparing it? While there are some appealing recipes, they are vegetarian, which doesn’t interest most carnivores, and will make this book one that they won’t want to add to their cookbook collection.
The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow for any cook, beginning to advanced. The recipes are also in metric (Kenny writes from the UK), but there is a conversion chart included at the beginning of the book. One problem with the recipes is that when it calls for “a can” of something, it doesn’t give the size. Most canned ingredients come in more than one size, so it would be nice if the recipes specified the sizes.

One positive aspect of this cookbook is that there is a beautiful, professional photograph of each recipe, which makes them appear mouthwatering, and will entice cooks to make them for their friends and families.

All told, this is a nice cookbook, and one that vegetarians will want to own.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
