My review: I'm a sucker for great cookbooks! The Lion House is one of my very favorite places to eat in Salt Lake City and I love trying out new recipes so for me this was a no brainer to buy! I've made a few recipes out of this particular book and I was truly impressed. I made some Banana Bars that were out of this world and a recipe for Lemon Bars that is far better than any others I've tried. If you like to cook make sure to check out this great book!
I bought my own copy of this book, all opinions are my own.
