Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Green basil smoothie

    • mharriman on October 21, 2021

      Better than most green smoothies I’ve had. I was able to pick off the last remaining good leaves from my basil patch to make 1/4 cup. I think the basil helps stem the bitterness of the spinach. Husband thought it tasted similar to a green gazpacho. This one’s a keeper.

  • Strawberry almond smoothie

    • mharriman on October 20, 2021

      Interesting version of a strawberry smoothie. The almond butter mutes the strawberry flavor which I was wanting more of. It’s a good smoothie, just not my favorite strawberry one when I want the strawberries to stand out. On the other hand, there’s a decent amount of protein in this drink.

  • Breakfast chia seed pudding

    • mharriman on October 22, 2021

      This recipe is essentially the same as the chia seed pudding in Giada’s Feel Good Cookbook but it omits the Greek yogurt. I liked this version a lot and It was very easy to put together the night before for a quick start breakfast.

  • Steak salad with white beans and sweet shallot dressing

    • mharriman on October 21, 2021

      I halved most of the ingredients for husband and me, and we liked it enough to tag it as a repeat. I used romaine instead of escarole lettuce. We thought the fresh tarragon was the ingredient that made everything pop with extra flavor. I used New York strip steak which was thicker than the skirt steak prescribed and in the photo. Mine was rare after 4 minutes of pan grilling on each side. I put the steak back in the pan, raw meat side down, for a minute on each rare side to get the doneness I wanted (medium). Served with whole wheat rolls and Cotes du Rhône wine.

  • Shrimp and endive salad

    • mharriman on October 19, 2021

      Just Okay. I liked the mustard , lemon, and olive oil dressing but it tasted too strong to me mixed with endive, jumbo shrimp, and orange sections. For my taste buds, I prefer a more neutral or citrus-based dressing with fruit in a salad- personal preference.

  • Fusilli with pesto and green beans

    • mharriman on October 17, 2021

      A quick, tasty meal. I cut most of the ingredients down to 1/4 for one person. I added asparagus spears since I had those on hand. The pesto makes the dish. Without it, it’s pretty bland (started eating it and realized I forgot to add the pesto!).

  • Amalfi lemon chicken

    • mharriman on October 19, 2021

      Very good. Husband and I really liked this lemon chicken recipe. I liked that the prep was easy ( especially compared to my ATK version) and then you just pop the pan in the oven for 40 minutes to do other meal prep things. This went well with the roasted broccoli in same cookbook. The two roast at the same temperature, which makes putting a tasty meal together a snap.

  • Crispy roasted broccoli

    • mharriman on October 19, 2021

      Not really a recipe- more like a reminder of temperature and time needed to roast, but good to know companion side dish for Amalfi chicken recipe which is in same cookbook and roasts at same temp on lower rack. Sprinkled on Parmesan cheese before serving.

  • Raffy's chicken with preserved lemons

    • mpo on May 08, 2021

      Solid dish and I added fennel to the liquid as it simmered for 25 minutes. I'd make this again.
