Tastes Like Home: Most Anticipated Cookbook of the Year

As if her blog didn't give me enough reasons to gain an extra ten pounds due to overeating, Caribbean author and cook extraordinaire, Cynthia Nelson, has written her own cookbook, Tastes Like Home, published by Ian Randle Publishers (IRP). Now, IRP published another very well known, respected and timeless cookbook, The Real Taste of Jamaica by Enid Donaldson.

While both books are a must-have for any Caribbean food lover, Tastes Like Home boasts a modern, full-colour design that even includes multiple images per recipe to accompany some of the detailed step by step instructions. Visit or the Facebook page for more information. 

By the way, to add a twist to this blog, I will be trying out a few of the recipes and blogging about my experience using the book. That will enable me to give you a proper review of how well the book functions as, of course, a cookbook is really an instructional guide. I can't wait to see if it is as clear and precise as it seems. And hey, I can't wait to get some yummy Caribbean food in my tummy too. 

Books should last a while. Wouldn't you agree? Perhaps that is why recipe books are one of the most gifted and purchased types of books around.They often last a number of lifetimes if kept in good condition and are often passed down from one generation to the next. What are your favorite cookbooks? I'd love to know.
