Sponsored by Tomoson.comIf you are in the market for a recipe e-book, look no further than the Ultimate Recipes e-book from http://www.cookingconnect.com/! The book contains 5,000 recipes including 1000 Atkins Diet Recipes, 101 Camping & Outdoor Recipes, 101 Recipes for the Deep Fryer, 111 Egg Recipes, 120 Lip-Smacking Good Jam Recipes, 300 Chicken Recipes, 470 Crock Pot Recipes, 65 Tried and True Traditional Amish Recipes, Cat Heat Biscuits and Garlic Fried Chicken, Cheesecake Recipes, Chocolate Recipes for Chocolate Lovers and Many More.
When I first downloaded this e-book I was incredibly overwhelmed! There were 4 zip files to download and each one was FULL of recipes and photos and information. I had no idea where to begin and I put off writing this review for a very, very long time because of this. Eventually I said to myself “One Step at a Time” and sang some Jordin Sparks. (Whenever I am overwhelmed that song calms me down and tells me what to do to get through things – just take it one step at a time!) I went through the PDFs one by one, zip by zip.
I’m not sure if the actual e-book comes as just one document, but what I was sent was a bunch of separate documents so it made things a bit harder for me to shuffle through – but I did it! 😉 There are a few recipes that I have no use for – specifically the crock pot recipes (I don’t have a crock pot) and camping. But if you do have a crock pot and/or camp – there are 101 Camping & Outdoor recipes ranging from Hamburger Stew, to chicken, to fish, and lots more. There are 470 crock pot recipes – lots of soups and puddings, some breads, dips, etc. Coming in at 480 pages if you have a crock pot I think it would be difficult to NOT find something you’d like to make in here.
The first area I checked out for myself was the salads. I’m trying to eat healthier – especially at work. I am always looking for something that I can easily make in advance and bring to work for lunch so I don’t end up at Wendy’s or some other fast foot joint every afternoon. I think I could try each and every salad included in this book and not have to worry about trying to same thing twice for many, many months. The salads were broken down to Vegetables, Fruit, Fish, Meats, High Protein and Other. Also included are recipes for several different kinds of dressings (my favorite!). This ebook has definitely given me some ideas and I really need to start making an ingredient list…
Another area of the book that caught my eye was “gift jar” recipes. These are always on lists for stocking stuffers, inexpensive gifts, what to get for people you don’t know well, etc. All of these recipes sound delicious – lots of great cakes and cookies. Some of which can even be cooked in their jars which is extra awesome. I’m not sure I have it together enough to makes some of these for this Christmas, but definitely next year I can see this happening! Or maybe just during the year as well – as I’m always down for some cookies or cake. (Which is probably why I need to start eating healthier at lunch…)
The final section of the book I am going to focus on (If I kept going about all the sections of this book I would probably end up being here for a year – there is a TON of content) is PUDDINGS! The fact that there is an entire PAGE for the table of contents – with 3 columns full of puddings is what intrigued me the most. Potato pudding, Carrot pudding, Indian pudding, Honey Pudding… the list goes on and on (and on and on!)
