Straight Up Tasty: Meals, Memories, and Mouthfuls from My Travels by Adam Richman is cookbook chalk-full of recipes inspired by his travels around the country. The book is divided in to chapter according to the meal as wells as Sides & Salads, Sauces & Condiments, as well as Sweets.
Nutty Chocolate Crunch Bites on p. 211 in the Sweets chapter has my mouth watering. The Easy Carbonara on p. 148 in the Dinner chapter looks simple and delicious. While the Tortellini, Pine Nut, Swiss, and Olive Salad on p. 106 in the Snacks & Small Plates chapter has me intrigued. This cookbook is well organized with simple photographs. I was disappointed that there weren’t more stories and photos from Adam’s travels that related to the recipes. I think most folks would find these recipes easy enough for the most part.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
