This week was our daughter-in-law’s birthday. We gave her an awesome gift and she loved it! You see, Mindi loves to cook. She loves to peruse cookbooks and find the perfect dishes to make for her family. She’s quite the incredible cook too. At times it’s difficult for moms to come up with a healthy meal that everyone … husband and three kids … will like. Let me tell you, Mindi’s pretty well mastered the task!
I’m excited about the new My Recipes – America’s Favorite Food cookbook that we gifted Mindi for her birthday. This isn’t just an ordinary cookbook!
My Recipes – America’s Favorite Food has a unique recipe Scan-It/Cook-It feature. You could call it a picture cookbook. (And that’s important to me! I like to see what the finished product is “supposed” to look like.) But these aren’t just pretty and appetizing photos! All but a few have an invisible watermark. With the DigiMarc Discover app, you can scan the photo and get special tips on preparing that particular recipe, more recipes like it, or watch the entire recipe in action. Simply download the DigiMarc Discover app to your smart phone or other sensor equipped device. Follow the scanning directions for the recipe you’re making and, voila! A how-to video or other informative hints! Check out how easy it is to use!
Scan the Coconut Shrimp with Maui Mustard Sauce and you’ll get a video showing how to peel and butterfly shrimp. This recipe is intriguing to me and I can’t wait to try it.
The video for the Chocolate Turtle Cake will show how-to frost a layer cake. I’ve been baking cakes for over 30 years and I still learned something from this tutorial.
By scanning the Spicy Black Bean Hummus photo, you get 7 more recipes that use black beans. Now, I’m here to tell you … I’ll be borrowing Mindi’s My Recipes – America’s Favorite Food cookbook. I promise you! I am loving the variety of healthy appetizers, main dishes and desserts. All. Of. Them! So, do you have a special someone on your holiday gift list that loves cookbooks?
