One of the gifts I received during my birthday was The Bob Ross Cookbook; a book so wholesome I was surprised it didn’t burn my hands while holding it. It features paintings by Bob Ross himself, and is written in such a Bob Ross sort of way. Is it gimmicky? Yes it is, Bob Ross is after all a living meme, and that’s ok because the cookbook actually features a lot of nice recipes. I’m on my weekend now, and wanted to try making the “Brunch Palette Quiche”. It calls for Gruyere Cheese, but I couldn’t find any to buy, so I decided to use smoked Gouda instead. It also calls for spinach, but I used a mix of spinach and kale. This is fine though, even the book talks about cooking as its own art form much like painting or anything else. I mean, look at this:
It tastes really good with slices of french bread. If I had time I would have made some form of pancakes to go with it. I’ve never made quiche before, so this was fun! It’ll also be a nice breakfast lunch to take to work with me. It was so good that I had to have two slices. 😛 I’ll have to check out some of the other recipes when given the chance.
I rate this book 420 out of 10.
