My Thoughts:

One of the first things that caught my eye about this cookbook was the pictures, they are so colorful and really bring the recipes to life.  They make me desire to try the recipe even though I know that I am the only one in my house that will eat it, picky kids can be a blessing or a curse at times. I like the breakdown of the book too, especially for the main meals. There is a chapter with weeknight dinners that are easy to make and many are even one pot meals. Then there are the special family dinners, and all the bread and cookie recipes that I am looking forward to trying.  All in all I think that I will be making quite a few of the recipes in this cookbook. I also like the information pages about the different provinces of Ireland, that is a really nice touch.
