Fans of Martina McBride’s music know how she loves to share the wonderful things in her life. It makes sense, then, that she is sharing some of her (equally wonderful) recipes with us in this beautiful book. The plentiful photography (with full page photos of each recipe), top-notch binding, and excellent printing on coffee-table-book quality paper makes this a truly keepsake cookbook.

I especially liked her recipes for entertaining, like the yummy baked olive cheese dip, that I served with artisan olive bread. My family loves the Cheddar Biscuits with Bacon, Creamy Garlic Pasta with Parmesan Cheese, and the no-bake Peanut Butter-Chocolate cookies. Many of the recipes are very simple, using inexpensive, everyday ingredients, and are quick and easy to put together, even on a busy weekday evening.
