Our Favorite Cookbooks

We have loved sharing some of our favorite books that we have been reading, and the books that we are looking forward to reading in the next couple months, so we decided today to share with you another list of books that we are loving--cookbooks! The majority of the meals we make in our homes are from a handful of cookbooks and we thought we would share our favorites with you and also hope we get some recommendations on some of your favorites.


 I’ve mentioned here on the blog before that I am not a huge fan of cooking and to be honest a lot of times it’s because I have no idea what I’m doing, so having a cookbook with step by step instructions that are easy to follow is super important for me. I actually really love baking especially around the holidays so I love a good cookbook with a lot of delicious desserts and treats to make so be sure to check out one of the cookbooks we are sharing called Sweet Laurel!

Skinnytaste by Gina Homolka


This one is a personal favorite of mine! I’ve been using it for a couple of years now and everything I’ve made has been delicious. I also love her cookbook Skinnytaste Fast and Slow, this is a great one because I love dumping ingredients into a crock pot, and if I'm not using a slow cooker, than I love meals that are really quick to throw together in under 30 minutes. There is a new one coming out in October that I'm looking forward to preordering called Skinnytaste One and Done, which is full of recipes that can be made in the slowcooker, instant pot or just one skillet, that sounds easy enough to me! 

Against all Grain Celebrations by Danielle Walker


Ashley introduced me to Against All Grain Cookbooks, but I especially love this one when putting together meals for our family around the holidays. I love that now when we gather for holidays we can plan our meals with options that are better for us, but that no one will no the difference because it all tastes so good. Danielle also has a new cookbook coming out at the end of this year called Danielle Walker's Eat What You Love, featuring comfort food recipes. 


Sweet Laurel by Laurel Galluci and Claire Thomas


This is a new favorite and to be honest we have only baked one cake from this cookbook, but I CAN’T WAIT to make more! Every recipe sounds divine, and my sweet tooth is already so excited to try the Caramel Blondies, her pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and the skillet cookie! Every recipe is made with whole foods and are grain free, so win win!

Fed and Fit by Cassy Joy Garcia

Ashley and Trey have been following a Paleo diet for the last several months and absolutely crushing it, and when I want to hop on the Paleo wagon I love using this cookbook. My favorite recipe is the Barbeque Chicken Potato Casserole, we are all big fans in our house!


So what did I miss? I'd love to know any cookbooks that you all might recommend and bonus if they are contain clean, whole food recipes!
