Win-It-Wednesday: Vibrant Food Cookbook by Kimberley Hasselbrink

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Yes! It is time for a new WIN-It-Wednesday and we are on a roll with another fabulous cookbook giveaway!

This Win-It-Wednesday sponsor is the Vibrant Food Cookbook by Kimberley Hasselbrink… a cookbook that celebrates the ingredients, recipes and colors of each season.

Being the start of the summertime season, my first instinct was to page to the chapter on the bold colors of summer. With thoughts of my upcoming garden bounty, I was happy to see some exciting recipes using some of the vegetables and fruits I will soon be enjoying in abundance. Some of my favorites are the Sweet Corn and Squash Fritters with Avocado Crema, Summer Squash Pasta with Green Goddess Dressing, Smoky Red Pepper Soup with Pumpkin Seeds and Feta, and Summer Berry-Coconut Milk Ice Pops.

The vivid photography in this cookbook has the food bursting off the pages, tempting you to create them in your own kitchen, and enticing you to enjoy not only the flavors, but the beauty of your food creations. Usually when I make a dish, I dig in right away, but the recipes that Kimberley Hasselbrink has created in the Vibrant Food Cookbook begs me to step back a moment to admire… and appreciate… before my fork hits the plate. No wonder Kimberley is a photographer, as well as a food blogger (you must check out her fabulous blog The Year in Food)!

The recipes in this cookbook are truly a feast for both your eyes and your appetite. Made with fresh, seasonal (think local) and vivid foods, almost all the recipes in this cookbook are gluten-free (and the ones that are not “naturally” gluten-free can be super easily adapted to be so – i.e. swapping out regular pasta for gluten-free pasta).

All of these fabulous reasons are why I am so excited that Kimberley Hasselbrink the photographer and food blogger behind the new cookbook  “Vibrant Foods”  is the sponsor of this Win-It-Wednesday contest on!
