Can you believe it’s Monday again?  Where DID the weekend go?

The one great thing about Mondays is that I get to post another review and giveaway!

Today it’s my pleasure to review “The Picky Palate Cookbook” by Jenny Flake.  You may already know Jenny from her hugely popular blog, Picky Palate.  Jenny is an on-the-go, stay-at-home mom with two young boys with picky palates, and the wife of her high school sweetheart of 12 years.  Jenny has been creating and writing her own recipes since 2001 and has competed in many food competitions across the country.

The Picky Palate Cookbook is chock-full of  recipes that will please any picky eater.

Some of the recipes I want to try are:

  • Pesto-Parmesan Baked Eggs
  • 3-Cheese and Bacon au Gratin Potatoes
  • Parmesan Roasted Carrot Fries
  • Chicken, Zucchini, and Black Bean Enchiladas
  • Bacon-Wrapped Honey-Mustard Chicken Tenders
  • Smokey Maple-Baked Salmon over Garlic Corn
  • Homemade Salted Soft Caramels
  • Chocolate Cake S’mores Cookies

While this is not a gluten-free cookbook, many of the recipes are naturally gluten-free or can be made gluten-free by adjusting the ingredients.  😉


This is a beautiful cookbook, with delicious recipes and wonderful photos by Matt Armendariz.
