Here are some questions to think about when writing your book review:
The Plot & Characters
Is the story exciting and believable? Is it a story you can get involved in? Are the people in the story believable? Are you interested in finding out about them? Can you picture the characters in your mind?
Is it a Good Read?
Once you’ve read the beginning, does it make you want to read more? How do the characters talk to each other? Does it seem real?
You picked the recipe and now it's time to review it. The Mac n Cheese Pancakes from Eat Me: The Food and Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin were a huge hit at my house! Watch the video and see how easy it is to make them at home.
I. LOVE. THIS. COOKBOOK. Seriously people, is there a more fun-to-read, easy-on-your-busy-lifestyle, creative cookbook out there?
Fun to read because he's so entertaining and funny and he has a potty mouth that keeps it real.
Easy because I had left over macaroni to use for a pasta salad later in the week and although I do prefer to make things from scratch, using the dry pancake mix was a cinch. With all that maple-y, crunchy, cheesy goodness, I couldn't tell it was from a box.
