My Review
Cook It Live It Eat It is an easy to follow cookbook filled with both recipes and stories/pictures from the author's travels (most of which inspired the dishes featured in the book). From Asian cuisine to Caribbean cuisine, there's something new and unique for readers to try. 
The one thing I did notice about a lot of the recipes is that they use rice or pasta. Lots of dishes with rice/pasta are featured. If that's not your thing, then this cookbook may not be for you. But even with that being said, there are still many other intriguing sounding dishes to make.
Some of the recipes I thought seemed like they might be good were:

Creamy Chicken and Smoked Bacon Stew with Cheesy Mash
Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Noodle Soup
Mac & Cheese with Caramelized Onion and Bacon Crumb
Spinach Ravioli with Lemon and Sage Butter
Ultimate Roast Potatoes
Basically all of the desserts (I love sweets!)

I enjoyed discovering new recipes, seeing the photos to accompany them, and even reading the stories about the author's travels. The only downside to the cookbook is, I'm American, so some of the measurements have to be converted (like 120g cold butter is an entire stick, or 8 tbsp). But other than that, I rather enjoyed reading through this cookbook, and I can't wait to try some of the recipes.
4 stars!
