Sweet Reads Box Limited Edition Cook’s Box August 2021: Farm, Fire & Feast by Michael Smith πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

As a kid my family’s menu consisted of two choices — take it or leave it. But as an adult with my own family, I tend to cater to my kids’ tastes. And by that I mean I ask them what they want and their dad makes it. πŸ˜‚ Really, I’m more the baker than the cook. But that doesn’t preclude me from collecting and enjoying cookbooks (many, many cookbooks, LOL) and dreaming of meals and desserts I might try, ones the whole fam jam might like.

Like Sweet Reads’ monthly boxes, it’s packed with delicious treats to eat and drink and some other fun and functional items to enjoy with the book.

I received The Cook’s Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.
