These are at the top of my list:
The key to eating a diet rich in vegetables and greens, in my opinion, is all about sauces. A nice flavorful sauce on top of any vegetable makes a delightful meal that anyone will enjoy. With an arsenal of sauces and stocks, you can pretty much cook anything! This cookbook even has alternatives for diet specific modifications.
If you’ve been reading OatandSesame for awhile now, you know that I’m a BIG gardener. That usually goes hand-in-hand with eating, right? I’m also a HUGE proponent of buying local and growing your own food, so this book is a MUST have for growing tomatoes. Whether you love to eat them fresh with a drizzle of olive oil or cooked down in a nice sauce, you’ll be the neighborhood expert on tomatoes with this book in tote!
A well-loved cookbook written by fellow food blogger, Deb Perelman, this cookbook will not let you down. All the recipes are familiar and comforting – recipes you’re grandma might have given you only fresher and more delicious. You’ll see that reviews on Amazon are 5 star.
A personal favorite, this cookbook is packed with healthy + flavorful recipes. Yes, you’ll find kale in a few, but overall, these recipes are pretty straightforward ingredients and have always made me very happy.
I bought this one after my trip to Austin. It’s a really fun book about all the Mexican dishes you know and love. You will find salsas and tacos that will ramp up your taco repertoire for that next #TacoTuesday!
Probably one of the most informative books on cooking, this massively heavy cookbook discusses the science behind almost everything. It teaches you the ins and outs of all your basic cooking skills and gives tons of recipes to branch out from. It’s like my food bible.
These simple recipes are great healthy ways to eat flavor packed meals without a lot of fuss! Although the title says vegan, these recipes are for everyone! Love the enchiladas in this cookbook!
I love that this book digs into why you are adding certain elements to a dish to make the flavors pop!
70 recipes for toast! And who doesn’t like a quick meal with fabulous options! I need this for quick lunch ideas!
