Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

This is the first post in a series of recipe blog reviews. I am searching blogs far and wide for the best recipe blogs I can find to share with you. This is part of the new "Recipe Mountain" project we are working on. I hope you enjoy!!

The first blog I have reviewed is called:

     The autor of "Yummy Books" is Cara Nicoletti. Cara says on the about page of her blog that she is “a butcher, former pastry chef, and writer." Cara lives in New York. Cara grew up in her grandfather’s butcher shop and has cooked professionally since 2004.

         This blog caught my attention during my quest for great recipe blogs. Not only does Cara have amazing recipes, but her recipes are tied to some of the best literature in history.

     What started as a book club with a few friends led to the creation of this blog. Cara says “I started Yummy Books as a way to keep the tradition of literary eating alive and share it with all of you.”

     I never even heard of literary eating until I stumbled upon Cara's amazing blog. The blog itself is very simple and easy to navigate. The categories are listed by author down the side of the main page. All you have to do is click on an author's name and it takes you to recipes from their books. 

     Here are a few examples that I personally fell in love with while reading Cara’s blog:

Where the Red Fern Grows Skillet Cornbread with Honey-Butter

Hansel and Gretel Gingerbread Stout Cake

Twilight Blood Orange Panna Cotta

     I personally would love to have a literary dinner with Cara!! I think it would be fun and the food would be absolutely delicious

     I find that it blows my mind how people can come up with the most creative ideas ever, and I believe Cara has done just that with “Yummy Books.” I strongly encourage you to take the time to visit “Yummy Books” today and follow Cara’s blog. I truly believe you will not regret it.

     Cara's blog has been featured in The New Yourk Times Diners' Journal, She was a finalist in Thekitchn.com's Best Recipe Blog Competition, PMC Magazine's Spotlite, StyledOn.com's Featured Blogger, and Foodpress.com.

     Please take the time to visit Cara's blog today and let her know what you think about her delicious recipes and her amazing ideas on literary dinners.
