Cookbooks For Your Kindle

My Kindle Fire! I love it!

It has been over four months since I got my new Kindle Fire. Do I still love it? Yes! I do! Very much so. Every night, I read before going to bed and it is what I look forward to every evening. Sometimes I read out loud to my husband. Many times though, he falls asleep, so I just read to myself. There are many books on Amazon for free every day, so if you have a Kindle, you probably already know that. If you aren't a Kindle owner, you may want to download the Free Kindle Reading Apps from Amazon, that makes it possible for you to read Kindle books on your computer.

I have had people asking me for cookbooks for their kindles, so here is a list of some books I have found. These are NOT free books! You can find those on Amazon, but they change daily. Hope these cookbooks will give you an idea of some of the great books available for the Kindle.

More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand-New, Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes - This book is written by Stephanie O'Dea, who is a blogger and is very popular. Her blog is at Stephanie O'Dea.

The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet - This book is written by Robb Wolf who has a website at Robb Wolf and also writes a blog. He apparently has quite the reputation. I read some interesting reviews and testimonials about this Paleo Diet. It sound close to low carb but not exactly. Allows fruit, but not dairy..........I want both!

Casseroles - Best Recipes from Club, Church and Community Cookbooks - This book is full of good casserole recipes, as well as written and formatted outstandingly.  I know this because one of the reviews I read of this book, a reviewer commented on that fact. I love casseroles and will be adding this book to my kindle as soon as I add my gift card to my account at Amazon.

  The Happy Herbivore Cookbook - This cookbook written by Lindsay Nixon is a cookbook for a healthy vegan diet. Some of the reviews I read about this book, state that it doesn't matter if you are vegan or not, that the recipes will suit anyone who wants to eat healthy.

  Edible Wild Plants (The Wild Food Adventure) - This book is not exactly a cookbook, but does give directions on how to identify, cook and eat the edible wild plants. Written by John Kallas, PhD, who has a website at Wild Food Adventures for more information.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier (Enhanced) - Who has not heard of The Pioneer Woman? Ree Drummond writes a blog at The Pioneer Woman, where she writes about her life on an Oklahoma ranch. Excellent!

  30 Delicious Refrigerator Cake Recipes - Icebox cakes and desserts were popular when I was growing up in the 50's. My mother made them often. This cookbook written by Lori Burke includes how to cut the calories in the recipes. A good collection of easy to make cakes!

Quick-Fix Southern: Homemade Hospitality in 30 Minutes or Less - This book is written by Rebecca Lang, who writes for Southern Living magazine. I grew up in the south so liked the idea of a cookbook that shortens southern recipes for quicker preparation. No pictures, but I'd rather have more recipes and less photos on my kindle.

  Easy, Fabulous Bread Making: A collection of quick, no-knead, homemade bread recipes - Written by Barbara Mack, this book gives you the recipes for making no-knead bread, which is just what I wanted. Thank you, Barbara Mack! I can't wait to try it!

1001 Low-Carb Recipes: Hundreds of Delicious Recipes from Dinner to Dessert That Let You Live Your Low-Carb Lifestyle and N - This cookbook is written by one of very favorite authors, Dana Carpender! Her books have been essential to my low carb way of eating. This book is a compilation of her other books. She probably wanted to make it easier for us Kindle owners (and she did!). Her recipes are REAL food for a low carber! If you are searching for a way to get out of the rut of meat and salad (which is what I did), then check out Dana's book. You can also check out her website at Hold The Toast!

I think I will be doing this as a feature on my blog every Saturday. Highlighting some kindle books for my readers. Hope this helps you find some good kindle books. If there is a type of book you are looking for,  leave a comment or contact me using my contact me form. Thanks for reading!

I just have the basic kindle with wifi but I also cook with it. One of the best aspects is that when I spatter I just wipe it off, lol.

Thank you so much for sharing these cookbooks. I also got some from All you can books. I found on this site many eBooks with interesting recipes and I can't wait to have a little spare time to try them all.
When I'll have I don't know, because unfortunately I'm very busy with my work.
