Review ~ Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold Cookbook: A Love Story Told Through 150 Recipes (Fool's Gold #12.1) by Susan Mallery

New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery invites you to taste the local cuisine of her beloved fictional town and share in a year's worth of deliciously seasonal recipes. 
Fool's Gold is known as the Land of Happy Endings, but it's also the land of hearty appetites. Throughout the series, the residents of Fool's Gold have found joy, comfort and good times through food. Now two local Fool's Gold chefs will also find love through food! Join them as they flirt, fight and fall in love, one season at a time. 

You'll also find favorite recipes from popular characters in the series, such as: 

Heidi's Arugula, Corn and Cherry Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese. 

Liz's Spaghetti for the Girls. 

Denise's Summer Berry Pie.  

With chapters for summer, spring, fall and winter, you can find the perfect recipe for everything from holiday get-togethers to cozy date nights, always using the freshest ingredients. And the heartwarming love story that is woven throughout is Susan Mallery at her finest. 

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.
I love all of Susan Mallery' s stuff, but I was super excited to get the cookbook. Not only is it filled with more than 150 great recipes from the Fool's Gold Series. The cookbook is divided up into 4 sections Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, each section has great recipes for that time of year. Recipes such as Fajita Quesadillas in Spring, Buttery Tilapia Dijon Dill Green Beans in Summer, Blueberry Muffin Coffee Cake in Fall, Christmas Morning Chocolate Swirl Buns and Homemade Hot Chocolate in Winter.

Not only do you get all these great recipes but she included a Love Story in as well. This is Ana Raquel and Greg's Story. Ana Raquel and Greg have been in competition with each for years. Ana Raquel considers Greg her biggest rival, but when both bring up making a Fool's Gold Cookbook to the mayor, she suggests they work together. Sparks start flying.

I have tried and loved a couple of the recipes and long forward to trying more. Only problem is every time I look at the pictures, I become hungry. I truly enjoyed reading Ana Raquel and Greg's Story. This is definitely one cookbook I highly recommend.
