Simple, healthy homecooking is exactly what you will find in Good Mood Food. The recipes are simple with easy to understand instructions and beautiful pictures. They use fresh, healthy ingredients and most are readily available.The book is divided into sections such as breakfast foods, main dishes, snacks and desserts. I liked the layout. Each recipe was on one page on the right with a full color picture of the finished recipe on the left page. Turn the page and you move on to the next one. Unfortunately the type of binding used does not allow the book to stay open. A perfect cookbook, for me, is one that will lay flat on the table so I can reference the instructions and ingredients while I’m cooking.This book was published in Europe so I had to translate temperature and measurements but that was not a problem and shouldn’t deter anyone from trying these recipes. I used one of the many conversion sites on the net, Traditional Oven is one of my favorites, to convert the measurements.There are a number of recipes that I want to try. The first one I choose was Apple and Oatmeal Muffins. I made a few modifications substituting cow’s milk for goat’s milk and added a little more cinnamon. Delicious.
