Highlights of April's Cookbooks Part 2

Last week, I shared a preview post featuring a baker's dozen of US cookbooks and one would think I'd be done. But as I stated, there are roughly 150 titles being released in April - I've only just begun! Today, I have another thirteen titles to share with Eat Your Book members. The next preview post will focus on international releases and then we will be headed to the monthly cookbook roundup before you know it.
