April Showers’ 40 Favorite & Delicious Family Recipes that “Even a Man Can Cook” will do exactly what it says on the cover - provide readers with a list of tasty and healthy comfort foods that need only a little effort, time and money to prepare. The cookbook comes with simple instructions and clear, tantalizing pictures of food ranging from the classic old-fashioned cottage pie to the intriguing orange-scented parsnip soup. Showers has also included a lot of advice about food storage, preparation, measurements, nutrition, and so on which will prove highly useful to newbie cooks.

As a college student with an interest in cooking, I always enjoy trying out new recipes which are inexpensive, nutritious and filling. Thus, I was quite delighted to find April Showers’ 40 Favorite & Delicious Family Recipes that “Even a Man Can Cook.” Making meals like Spaghetti Bolognese and mashed potatoes using the recipes from this cookbook has been a fun and tasty endeavor so far. I look forward to attempting some of the more unfamiliar recipes too - it will be interesting to see what the tabbouleh and baked deviled salmon will taste like! I also appreciate how this cookbook encourages experimentation - many of the recipes suggest interesting variations which can be made to give your meal a little zing. All in all, I am quite pleased with 40 Favorite & Delicious Family Recipes, and I think you will like it too.
