A Few Favorites – Recipe Review from Kim @ Pouring Down Like Rain

I asked a few of my friends to choose one or two recipes from my new cookbook A Few Favorites and try them out.  I am enjoying seeing how they put their own twist into the recipes and, and I will be sharing their reviews with you as they come in and share the pictures they provided.

First let me introduce you to Kim from Pouring Down Like Rain.  She is a wonderful writer and cook; and I look forward to her posts and the wisdom she has to share.  I hope you will stop by her website for a visit.  She chose to make the Gluten Free Brownies and Quinoa and Black Beans.  I’m going to share a little of what she wrote about the brownies and then include her full review for you to click into.  You’ll want to check out what she added to the Quinoa with Black Beans to make it her own.  I can’t wait to try her version.  Remember recipes are only a template and you can always change to meet your likes and needs.

So here is what Kim said about the brownies – For Full Review – Click Here 

“For dessert, I made Debbie’s Gluten Free Brownies.  Have I mentioned that I love chocolate?  Yes, I think I have a few times now.  Well these brownies are so easy to make; just a few ingredients and you’re placing them in the oven.  And, if I’m being completely honest, some of the best I’ve ever tasted.  I actually picked every single crumb out of the dish I cooked them in.  I couldn’t get enough.  These did not last very long in our home.

I didn’t know what to expect with the almond flour; I’ve never cooked with it before.  I have to say, I’m a big fan.  If you are looking for gluten free brownies, look no further.  These are heavenly!”

Thank you, Kim, for giving the recipes a whirl and I am glad they are something you enjoyed and will make again 🙂 Doing my happy dance.

 Drum Roll Please….Introducing

Deliciously Inspired’s First Cookbook 

E-Book Title Pic

My appreciation for cooking started 40 years ago when I made my first sugar cookie. I have learned a lot in those four decades and many of the ingredients have changed due to food sensitivities in our family but I feel that each challenge increased my knowledge and allowed me to adapt standard style recipes to meet a variety of needs.   It has long been a dream of mine to create a cookbook that would allow me to share tried and true recipes from my kitchen with others.  These dishes have not only nourished my family and friends but have helped create memories as we gather in the kitchen during the preparation – the eating – and yes, even the clean up.

I enjoy the abundance of information on the web but I have missed not having the recipes gathered together in a cookbook format.  I wanted A Few Favorites to be able to not only be utilized on a computer but as a hard copy version as well.  Below you will see the different ways the recipes can be accessed:

  • Download the cookbook onto your computer (desktop or laptop)
  • Bring your laptop into the kitchen to pull the cookbook up to follow a recipe
  • Print a hard copy in black and white*
  • Print a hard copy in color* (You can have Staples, etc print out the cookbook to save the ink on your printer.)

*TIP:  If you came into my kitchen – I would show you my makeshift cookbooks that sit on my shelf.  You can do the same.  Here’s how to create your own cookbook with your printed copy.  Buy a binder and some sheet protectors.  Now place the recipes into the sheet protectors.  This will protect your recipe during the cooking process.  Voila! – you now have a cookbook that is ready to pull onto your counter when needed.  

This collection ranges from main dishes to desserts (Thai Pasta Salad, Gluten Free Brownies, Quinoa and Black Beans and Best Ever Pancakes are just a few of the recipes you will find.  Note – Several of the recipes have not previously been shared on the blog).   To purchase your copy please click HERE  or you can find the cookbook in Deliciously Inspired’s new tab titled “E-Books”.  (Once the transaction is complete, you will receive an email with the cookbook link for you to download to your computer and enjoy.)

I want to take this opportunity to thank God, my family (my husband and daughter for their continued technical support), my Deliciously Inspired friends and the many people who have been my taste testers for their encouragement.  It was instrumental in making my dream into a reality.

From a Grateful Heart,
