Breakfast Fruit Pizza

Today marks a week of cookbook giveaways on Bluebonnets & Brownies. Just in time for holiday gift giving, the three books I’ll share with you are all books I’m giving to friends this holiday season. Check back on Wednesday and Friday for two more fabulous cookbooks!

I’m starting the week off with Pam Anderson’s newest book. It’s no surprise that I’m probably Pam Anderson’s biggest fan. Long before I knew her or her daughters personally, I had been given Pam’s book, “Perfect Recipes for Having People Over” by my boss in a Christmas Secret Santa exchange.

Later, my boss would introduce me to Maggy, Pam’s daughter. It’s kind of a thing that happens when Americans end up in England. The Brits throw the Americans together, assuming that we’ll automatically like each other. Luckily for both Maggy and me, we did!

All this was long before we were food bloggers, but I do credit Pam for leading me into a passion about food. Pam’s books changed how I cooked. They helped me understand the techniques behind cooking. And if you’ve ever met the woman yourself? It’s impossible not to love her.

When Maggy announced on Twitter that Pam’s newest book was up for pre-sale, I think I was the first person to order it. Listen, friend or not, Pam is an excellent cook book writer. I will always have her newest books on my shelf, because they are always inspiring.

Pam’s book, “How to Cook Without A Book” was the first thing I chose to ever give away here on Bluebonnets & Brownies, because I use it all the time.

To this day, I think it has the most perfect and complete pantry staples list I’ve ever seen. And it gives those that are afraid to cook a real foothold on flavors and combinations so that they CAN experiment after getting down the basics.

“How to Cook Without A Book: Meatless Meals” is no exception. Pam moves you beyond the pasta and scrambled eggs to create some really spectacular formulas that you can use on both your meatless and meat-filled days.

I think that’s probably my favorite thing about this book. While the focus is on really fantastic recipes that you can use every day in a meatless fashion, this is an every day cookbook. Any of these formulas are also fantastic on days when you ARE eating meat. Not that you’ll even miss it. The recipes are that good.

My favorite recipe out of the book so far is for the breakfast pizzas. Sweet or savory, you can’t go wrong.

I made Pam’s formula for apple, cinnamon, and hazelnut fruit breakfast pizzas. Because I am addicted to maple sugar, I also added a little of that in. Magnificent, I tell you!

Sounds like a great book. My roommate is a vegetarian, so it makes apartment dinners extremely difficult because we never know what to cook. It'd be nice to start incorporating more healthy, meatless meals into our diet that we can all share and goes beyond pasta!
