I am so thankful for the public library – they have some great cookbooks.
Tyler Florence, as I’ve said before, is one of my favorite cooks, and this is one of his first cookbooks (if not his first). So, I can tell he’s come a long way in his writing style and use of photography, but the recipes are still stellar! This is a great beginner cookbook but one who has knowledge of cooking and money to spend. The recipes aren’t generally “cheap” but he does tell you why these ingredients are important. He also tells the beginning what to stock her kitchen and pantry with to be able to cook creatively!
I want to make these:
Cherry Poppy Seed Muffins (which I made and they were delicious)
Creamed Chicken with Mushrooms
Green Curry Chicken
All the sushi (when I’m not pregnant) – I love it how he teaches one how to make sushi and dim sum!
Chicken Cacciatore (I love Sara Foster’s – so I might see if its better)
All of his side dishes (which often make a meal.
Pick this up and cook through it. You will expand your cooking repertoire and eat good at the same time!
