Simone is a public relations and marketing pro who knows how to find the perfect gift, for the perfect budget. She’s been blogging about gift-giving since 2008. Find her insights and ideas on her blog, http://honeebeegifts.blogspot.com. When she isn’t blogging or finding the perfect gift, you can find her enjoying the arts, good food, and working with several community nonprofits.

This annual collector's edition book features over 700 recipes that appeared in the glossy pages of Cooking Light Magazine throughout 2011. To make it easier for the kitchen novice, pictures are included of many of the dishes and for the more experienced chef you can give your take on many of the healthy dishes. The book takes you from the beginning of the meal until the end, with easy to prep appetizers and delicious desserts...and of course entrees to die for. This would make for a great gift for someone new to the kitchen or someone who just wants to shake things up a bit. Ladies, we must move away from the salads and grilled chicken breast at some point...while still being healthy of course, and with the help of this cookbook, why not do it today?
