I have two gorgeous cookbooks by Tessa Kiros. The photographs are beautiful, and she is a wonderful storyteller.

She is half Finnish and half Greek, and her husband is Italian. The recipes reflect these ethnicities.

The titles are: Falling Cloudberries and Apples for Jam.

So far this week I have made Baked chocolate pudding, Lentils and sausage, Lamb and green bean casserole, and Moussaka. Every dish has been excellent.

I am a cookbook junkie and these are fabulous.

Those sound like they would be lovely gifts. I will check them out for sure. My sister loves to cook and has a wonderful cookbook collection. Thanks!

I am a fellow cookbook junkie as well! It has been my dirty little secret! Now I have to sell my house and downsize to a zen like minimalist. I'm thinking I need therapy to transition to that person! I don't know this Tessa person, I'll have to check it out. You had me at "photographs are beautiful" and "wonderful storyteller". Some of my cookbooks I have never made a dish from, I just peruse them like a coffee table book. It is sort of like a meditation to browse a beautiful cookbook with photos and a lovely story. Not many understand. Hello there my kindred spirit!

You can check them out at Amazon. They would be great gifts!

Yes, every recipe has been easy to prepare and delicious.

positively4thst, glad to meet another cookbook junkie! We should start a thread for favorite cookbook recommendations!

My MIL used to say about me, to her friends, "She READS cookbooks, can you imagine?"

I thought everybody did!
