Peas and Thank You
So by this point, a blind man could see that I am in love with Peas and Thank You. I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful recipeas Mama Pea has compiled into this book. The recipes are delicious, nutritious, and easy to put together. Even as a single gal without a family to take care of, my time is limited. I'm a busy grad student trying to balance work, school, and play. I don't want to spend hours in the kitchen, laboring over a meal, and with Peas and Thank You, I don't have to. I can eat yummy, wholesome meals (and scrumptious snacks, too!) in 30 minutes or less. I've definitely sampled some recipes from other books that have a quick prep time, but leaves me wanting more in terms of flavor. That is absolutely not the case with Mama Pea's recipeas.
In addition to the wonderful recipes, Mama Pea share funny anecdotes and adorable pictures of her precious peas. Her writing style and sense of humor draw you in from the first page - I pretty much read through the cookbook like you'd read a novel. Have you ever wanted to read a cookbook? I sure as hell haven't. The pictures and stories add a personal touch that engages her readers and endears her to them.
If you haven't bought this book yet, go do it! If you're hesitant (though you shouldn't be - I'd never lead you astray!), you can go here and preview the book and five recipeas. How cool is that?
So get check it out and give peas a chance!
