Get Cooking with Honey and Put a Little Sweetness Into Your Life

Around the globe and dating back to ancient times, honey has been considered “liquid gold” for its uses as a sweetener and as medicine. It is an obvious choice as a food ingredient, and honey’s naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal for incorporating into spa treatments. 


Honey is a cookbook by Julia Rutland that features 50 recipes―from drinks to desserts to entrées―for cooks who enjoy great flavor. 

The author is a professional writer, recipe developer, recipe tester, food stylist, and television/media demonstrator, so you can be certain that every dish is a crowd-pleaser!

The book’s full-color photography adds to the enjoyment of cooking. Plus, tips about honey varieties and how to help pollinators, as well as honey crafting ideas, add to the value of this wonderful cookbook. Julia further provides plenty of useful information on buying honey, using it as a replacement for granulated sugar, and more. 

We love honey because it sweetens and enhances flavors naturally and it provides a natural energy boost. Add Honey to your cookbook collection, and put a little extra sweetness into your life.
