Ever since I got Ina’s latest cookbook, I’ve been cooking but being very lax about posting! I know, I know. But I swear, I *am* keeping track of all the recipes I’ve been making. I’ve listed them at the very bottom of my Cooking page. 🙂
Here’s the count to date along with some notes:
FOOLPROOF COOKBOOK – completed 12 of 88
Winter Minestrone & Garlic Bruschetta – very nice cold weather soup
Sicilian Grilled Swordfish – absolutely awesome
Easy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons – another great soup for winter
Mashed Sweet Potatoes – tasty and a nice option for a holiday side
Tuscan Mashed Chickpeas – just so-so for me
Israeli Couscous & Tuna Salad – great flavours
Chicken with Wild Mushrooms – to DIE for; the gravy alone is heaven on a plate
Easy Tzatziki with Feta – simple, quick and very tasty
Salmon & Melting Cherry Tomatoes – very tasty for salmon lovers
Zucchini Vichyssoise – Yummy!
Straw & Hay with Gorgonzola – Rich and tasty, decadent
Roasted Crispy Kale – What a cool side dish, reminded me of crispy spinach often found in asian restaurants
Overall, if I count all of Ina’s cookbooks, I’ve completed 215 of 695 recipes.
It’s been fun looking for recipes to use up the produce we’ve been receiving as part of our weekly delivery from Mama Earth Organics. That’s been really awesome – we’re now in week 4. We’ve been able to try some new vegetables (to us) such as red chard and kale. Everything has been of great quality so far and I look forward to receiving our new basket every week! Since I try hard to use up all the fruits and veggies from the basket, we’re eating lots of healthy food these days. And a nice side effect is that we’ve lost a few pounds – go figure!
There’s been tons of variety so far. In the past 4 weeks, we’ve received different apples, oranges, bananas, grapefruit, avocado, kale, red chard, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, beets, button and shiitake mushrooms, onion, leeks, garlic, broccoli, zucchini, baby bok choy, yams, and more! We’re super pleased of having made the switch – highly recommend to anyone.
