Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas Great Reads and Great Authors - Martha A. Cheves

I’ve never met Martha personally but she has a good soul. I know this because I read her cookbook called Stir, Laugh, Repeat, Finding Joy While Playing in the Kitchen. It has some great recipes in it that only use a few ingredients, which I appreciate, but it has a whole lot more. It has heart! It has vignettes about happy times and funny stories to go with each recipe. It also has great tips with each recipe than can help a novice cook become a good one. This is a great cookbook to have in any kitchen!

I met Martha cyberly through Sunny Frazier (see previous entry). Sunny recommended Martha as a book reviewer. Martha is also excellent at critiquing books. I could be biased about that. She gave great reviews for both of my books which I am exceedingly grateful. Her blog called A Book and A Dish features authors, Martha’s reviews, and the must have ingredient is the authors must submit a recipe that goes with the book. It is great fun seeing the recipes that the authors picked.

Martha has a new book coming out called Think With Your Taste Buds - Desserts. I can’t wait for this one. Desserts are my favorite! I hope you will check out Martha’s recipes and pick your favorites. The easiest way to do that is buy her cookbooks. Enjoy!


  1. I second that about desserts. Thanks for stopping by, Stephen!
