Stephanie Meyer. Released 17th March 2020 by Callisto on their Rockridge Press imprint, it's 180 pages and available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately.

yields and cooking directions. Most of the ingredients are easily sourced at
any moderately well stocked grocery store. The
book also includes short author bios, and a metric conversion chart,
but lacks any index or general ingredients index.
My one quibble
with the book is that the recipes are mostly not photographed. There are
some photos, and they're clear and attractive, but they only represent about
5% of the recipes included in the book.
