Book Review: Duck Commander Devotions for Kids

Duck Commander Devotions for Kids
 by Korie Robertson and Chrys Howard

This book is adorable. The illustrations are super cute and kid friendly and the devotions are easy to follow for young children. We enjoy most of the books that come from Duck Commander and I do believe that we'll enjoy this book as well. I do think its for a child a little older than my son but we will hang onto it to read with him when he's older. This book tells stories in a simple manner that I think anyone would be able to understand. There is nothing fancy or over the top with this book and I do believe that it will be enjoyed by those looking for something for their children.

Book Review: Soul Food Love

Soul Food Love: Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family
By Alice Randall & Caroline Randall Williams

This cookbook is absolutely beautiful, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I didn't realize the first half of the book would be nothing but family stories. I did find them interesting but I don't normally buy cookbooks to read them, its just not my thing. I like cookbooks to be beautifully illustrated and the recipes to be easy to follow. This cookbook did have pictures but not as many as I would have liked and in all honesty a couple of the recipes were just silly. In the dessert section there was a recipe that said to serve a thimble of burbon and dark chocolate. I guess that would be good as a random tip somewhere in the book but shouldn't take up a full page of a cookbook. Overall its a beautiful book and the quality is great, but its not one that I will keep in my collection. It is also one I won't be recommending to family or friends.
