Is anyone out there who loves cookbooks? I have a ton of them here and always look for more. I am not especially a cook, that is hubby's department but I do love to bake. So recently when I was asked by Brenda if I would do a review/giveaway on this book I accepted.
It has 186 pages of recipes for your enjoyment. Its called The Lazy Gourmet by Robin Donovan & Juliana Gallin.
There is a Measurement Conversion Chart and the Index at the back of the book.
Part 1-The Basics
Three chapters here.
The recipes. Now talking about recipes here is a good example of what you will find inside this book.
Crispy Baked Rosemary Potatoes
This beyond-easy, unembellished dish never fails to please a crowd. Its like "comfort food plus."
Serve alongside meat, poulty, or fish.
2 pounds small potatoes (Such as red-or-white-skinned new potatoes or Yukon Golds) halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a baking dish, toss potatoes with the oil, rosemary, and salt until thoroughly coated. Bake in preheated oven, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour, until potatoes are browned and crispy.
Serve this with
*Grilled, roasted, or braised meats
*Duck Legs in Port Reduction (page 124)
*Steak au Poivre (page 129)
Examples of some of the desserts in this book are
**Poached Pears with Bittersweet Chocolate Drizzle
**Bananas Bread Pudding Foster and **Cherry Clafoutis.
These are 3 of the great desserts you will find in this book.
One lucky person is going to win this cook book.
Good luck everyone!
