Cook Book Design: Part 3

Dear Reader,

As my third post in this weeks Cook Book Design collection I thought today I would share a couple of cook books on my book buying list.  This first one I found on Anthro and quickly realized that it wasn't just pretty it was smart too.

The Family Dinner by Laurie David
"David has packed the book full of easy tips on everything from how to set the table for take-out Chinese food, ways to get the kids to taste everything on the table, dinner table conversation starters, and of course, greening your dinner experience. David even devotes a whole chapter to family dinners after divorce -- something she had to face after her split from husband Larry David. Read more go {here}

And my second, The Good Neighbor Cook Book by Sara and Suzanne
"Opportunities to share food abound, whether it’s your annual block party, hosting duties for book club, or a desire to bring some comfort to an ailing or grieving friend. Yet so many of us stumble through these occasions because we don’t know what to cook or don’t think we have the time. (Do corn chips and bottled salsa ring a bell?)

The Good Neighbor Cookbook is here to guide you confidently into your kitchen. We created it around a simple premise: The gift of homemade food is a labor of love, but it need not be laborious." To read more go to {here}.  Lovely, lovely!

Make sure to peruse our Organize section of the printables directory for tags and recipe cards for your kindly food endeavors!  Check back Friday for a new recipe related addition! Here are two of my current freebie favorites:

{Above} is a lovely gift tag for your good neighbor giving from the lovely Joy Ever After.
{below} is a recipe card with matching labels from The Small Object, I love the simplicity of her designs.  Lovely.

I don't know about you but I am going to go out and get these this weekend, you can get them from Amazon or Anthropologie carries The Family Dinner and Barnes and Noble carries The Good Neighbor Cook Book.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
