Free Christmas Cookbooks

I downloaded 5 free, Christmas cookbooks from Amazon last month. I have read through them all and will give you my honest review. I am an amateur in regards to all things cooking, so I will base my reviews on the quality of the instructions and simplicity etc. I will include links for you to get your copies if you wish.

Holiday Cooking Made Easy by Les Ilagan

My Review:

I give this book 4/5. This cookbook is crammed full of recipes, some new to me, and some that are twists on old classics. A lot of effort has gone into compiling this, and the recipes are laid out well.

Christmas Recipes by Cheryl Leonard

My Review:

I give this book 3/5. This is not quite my cup of tea, but thats not to say it won’t be yours. Some recipes require expense such as crab meat.

There are no pictures in this book, so I can’t visualise the meals, but it is laid out well, and a vast array of dips, sauces, butters, and spreads are included.

Christmas Drink Recipes by Kelly Michaels

My Review:

I give this book 3/5. I never knew there were so many Christmas drinks! The various hot chocolate recipes are right up my street, but as I’m not a fan of coffee or peppermint, that rules out quite a few.

There are no pictures in this book either, but the recipes are simple and concise.

Favourite Christmas Cookies by Various Authors

My Review:

I give this book 3/5. This book is based on the favourite recipes of the characters in the authors book- Ten Christmas Brides. It’s a cute idea.

There is an introduction to the recipe in regards to the characters which was unique, but the recipes themselves didnt excite me. I wouldnt say they were all that Christmassy either.

Easy Recipes for Christmas Cooking by Various Authors

My Review:

I rate this book 4/5. This book is crammed with content. There are pictures with each recipe and the recipes are Christmassy.

There’s even a planner, so you get the timings of all aspects of your Christmas dinner spot on.
