Now don't let the title of this book confuse you as it is not all about recipes with cinnamon (which I must admit promtped my inital excitement), it just happens to be the name of Izy Hossack's blog that subsequently prompted a book release. I for one and am very glad that this happened, even though I had never heard of Izy before, as this book is modern, chique, and full of delicious recipes. Unlike a lot of cook books, I want to eat things off pretty much every page.

For me this book is a collection of naughty and nice recipes. Obviously the naughty ones are the things that just taste too darn good turn, like the red velvet cakes, amaretto torte, boozy mocha layer cake, or the swedish chocolate cake (to name just a few). Yet the nice recipes are what surprisingly excite me more in this book, as the recipes are healthy, fresh, both looking and taste wise, and packed full of flavour. Some of my favourites have to include courgette spaghetti with chilli, corn soup, beef chilli, and cauliflower risotto, although the other untried or tested recipes I'm sure will be equally delicious.

Izy also provides basic dip recipes that again are fresh and cleansing, from standard dips of guacamole and salsa through to a chickpea and pomegranate dip There are also various cookie, bread, and salad recipes that are sure to excite more tastebuds.

As with any good cookbook you also get the standard 'how to' guide, which shows you everything from how to line tins, and making basic bread, pastry, or ganaches, through to making salted caramel sauces and treacle butters.

I find this book fresh, exciting, and modern. I'm sure it will suffer through many years of use and I am very happy to add it to my on show collection.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Author Izy Hossack is a young food enthusiast and blogger who has created a really fun and vibrant cookbook with lots of quick and easy to prepare recipes. I do agree with other reviewers that the font size is quite small – that may be fine for people of Izy’s age, but personally I had to use my reading glasses and I prefer to cook without them. That aside, this is nicely laid out with lots of attractive photographs and is fun to read as well as cook with. The book is split into sections – Breakfast and Brunch, Sides, Mains, Sweet Snacks, Desserts and Staples and ‘How-To’s’. The staples are not of the simple how to create real basic dishes for people who have never attempted cooking before (such as Delia’s ‘How to Cook’) but a list of Izy’s staples, such as pastry (with detailed instructions on how to prepare a cake tin), pesto and almond butter.

Where this book really comes alive is on the sweet and dessert sections. However, saying that, the breakfast and brunch section is also delightful – with delicious Chocolate and Banana French Toast, Cinnamon Rolls and No-Bake Chocolate Granola Cookies, which are fun to make with children. With Halloween coming up, I intend to try the Malted Pumpkin Gingerbread and I really liked the Udon Noodle and Mushroom Soup. I would not suggest this as a first cookbook, but it does have some great recipes, most of which are really quick to prepare. I also liked Izy’s sheer enthusiasm and style of writing. Perhaps next time her publishers can take pity on older readers and just make the book a little easier to read, because she does deserve a wide readership. However, I accept that the book was produced with readers of Izy’s age in mind as presumably they are the ones who follow her blog. Great book with lots of useful ideas and delicious recipes and I am sure I will use it often.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Izy Hossack was a new name to me, but although still a teenager, she has been making a name for herself on the net via her blog, Top With Cinnamon, which she has written since 2011.

I had half -expected Izy to be American - almost right, she is the Londoner daughter of an American Italian mother, and therefore her recipes contain metric, imperial and US measures. Many fans of the blog will no doubt have already purchased the book - just three recipes are from the blog, but there may be others, who like me were intrigued by the title.
Cinnamon does feature in three of the recipes, for those who are fans of the spice, as Izy is. There are Pretzel Cinnamon Rolls and Cinnamon, Pecan and Oatmeal Cookies, plus instructions for cinnamon sugar.

Baked goods feature heavily throughout, there is a strong emphasis on these along with simple recipes for side dishes such as focaccia and pitta bread. This is exactly in keeping with Izy's blogs which has literally dozens of sweet recipes, some savoury ones, but very little for anything that can be classed as a main course. The Top With Cinnamon blog won the Editor's Choice 'Best Baking and Desserts Blog' award at the 2014 Saveur Best Food Blog Awards.

The book does have a 'mains' section, but this includes a rather good recipe for udon noodle soup and some light salad dishes, which pushes the definition a bit.
In fairness, this does probably reflect what goes on in Izy's environment. Living at home as a student, cooking a main meal was out of her hands - she got to make snacks, cakes, scones and biscuits that she could take in to school to share with her friends.

Ingredients lists tend to be quite short - very short in some cases.
