    This book is more about the show and contestants than recipes. I’d like to see more recipes and less bios.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Turkey and pork meatballs with orecchiette pasta and spinach-almond pesto

    • crandall57 on July 26, 2016

      We used gluten free pasta; didn't have artichokes, so threw in some roasted red peppers; didn't make the spinach-almond pesto, just added some almonds at the end with wine, lemon and parmesan. Will make it again and make the spinach-almond pesto, nice meal, great meatballs. Used gluten free flour for the meatballs.

  • Pickled Asian slaw

    • Acarroll on November 12, 2021

      Very good - I loved the combination of sweet and tart. Served this with the char siu pork sopes from the same book.

  • Corn sopes with char siu pork and pickled Asian slaw

    • Acarroll on November 12, 2021

      In my husband's words, this was "epic". I couldn't find char siu sauce so I made one from the book Wicked Healthy. I used pre-made sopes that I baked at 400 degrees for 17 minutes (at high altitude). The flavors and textures of the sopes, sauce, BBQ pork, and slaw worked beautifully together.
