Goodreads Summary:
The more than 150 recipes and dozens of gorgeous photographs in this book will inspire you to find perfection in the simple and the seasonal. And with all of Fool's Gold with you in the kitchen, your every celebration will have a happy ending!

My thoughts:
Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold Cookbook is inspired by her love for cooking as well as the her well-known series, Fool's Gold. She designed this cookbook to be very user friendly. It contains yummy, easy to do recipes. I love this because I'm a busy woman like most of the women out there. I don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen and to be honest, recipes with more than 6 steps intimidate me. So as I flipped through this cookbook I realized that Susan Mallery had women like me in mind when she made this cookbook. I've made a few of her recipes and they turned out really good. Also some of the recipes come from the characters in the series such as: Liz Sutton's simple and fresh Summer Squash Saute (so good). I also love that Susan has separated her recipes according to the season. And the recipes are perfect for each season. 
And for a bonus surprise Susan Mallery has included a short story into this cookbook. The story is woven throughout the entire cookbook.  You don't have to be familiar with the Fool's Gold series to enjoy this story. Which is what I love about Mallery's writing. However I must warn you, it will leave you wanting to read more about these characters and the town. 
I would definitely recommend this cookbook to anyone and everyone. It's full of yummy recipes and a heartwarming story!
