Comfort Food Cookbook
Highlighting American, German, Norwegian, and English Heritage Recipes



Available on iBooks®

     I am so excited that my Comfort Food Cookbook is available on iBooks® now!  Go check it out! Comfort Food Cookbook - Kimberly Cawi

     This is a comfort food cookbook that speaks to your soul.  It nourishes the body as well as the mind.  It is what your grandparents cooked on Sundays; it is holiday traditions.  These 140 recipes are the dishes that make my family feel loved and happy inside. The dishes are warm, gooey, savory, sweet, and sour.  I have highlighted the American, German, Norwegian, and English style of cooking I grew up with, because that is what I know and want to share with you.   I grew up in the Midwest where I went with my German grandmother to a small family farm for fresh vegetables every week in the spring, summer, and fall.  She taught me how to pick ingredients and how to cook.  I include dishes such as her sweet and sour German Potato Salad, a warm potato salad with bacon.  Plenty of braises such as Beef Brisket with Honey Mustard Glaze will fill your home with mouth watering aromas.  Drink a cup of Norwegian Gløgg with some Meatballs with Gravy and Lingonberries.  White Macaroni and Cheese with goat cheese and coconut milk updates the traditional dish.  English Prime Rib and Yorkshire Pudding finished with a Christmas Plum Pudding topped with brandied Hard Sauce creates an impressive holiday meal.  Originally these recipes were in print in 2011 under the title, Exceptional Comfort: The Recipes: Volume I, without the extensive photography.  Now enjoy this enhanced edition with hundreds of pictures as you scroll through the Appetizers and Beverages, Soups and Salads, Vegetables and Side Dishes, Main Dishes, Breads and Muffins, Desserts, Cookies, and Sauces and Condiments.  The first page of each recipe has a scrolling ingredient list with a featured photograph.  The ingredient list is shown again alongside the instructions on the next page, so the cook doesn’t need to swipe back and forth.  Many of the picture galleries show stages of preparation.  It is my intention to give the gift of Exceptional Comfort.  Enjoy!
