I have to admit, I am not quick to adopt food "trends" - quinoa and kale in specific! Some critics say this book is too "weird" and they may be in part referring to these ingredients.
Even though I stick to recipes with more familiar ingredients, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS COOKBOOK. I have tons of cookbooks, and some sit on the shelf with only a few tried and loved recipes. This is not one of them! Most but not all are quick and easy to put together with fresh ingredients.
I love all these recipes! Giada has found ways to deliver tons of flavor and high nutrition. If you are hesitating due to unusual ingredients, don't! I am in love with this book! And have many more recipes which I will be trying.
Vegetable Meatloaf- awesome! So filling and flavorful!
Southern Italian Style Chicken- tons of flavor!
California Turkey Chili- I added crushed tomatoes, but awesome. Freezes well, too.
Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary- very good
Sole with Lemon Basil Pesto- amazing!!!!
Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard Sauce- easy enough for everyday, awesome for company! A must try!
Mahimahi with Mango Vanilla Sauce- made with halibut- delicious! (Push sauce through a stainer to eliminate pulp)
Broiled Sole with Mustard and Chive Sauce- dinner on the. Table in 20 minutes! Yummy!
Butter Lettuce with Pear Dressing- omitted the tuna, but just delicious!
Farfalle with Chicken and Mushrooms - good
Turkey, Kale, Brown Rice Soup- yummy! Used escarole (like often used in Italian Wedding Soup) instead of kale
Green Pea, lettuce, and Fennel Soup - surprisingly delicious!!!
Orange Scented Almond and Olive Oil Muffins- nice!
Banana Walnut Smoothie Yummy
I've seen too many "diet" cookbooks that use too many weird "diet" ingredients, calling for ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, fat free dairy, and so on (ie. Rocco Dispirito in his "Now Eat this!" series -- although his Now Eat This! Italian is pretty awesome). I've always thought that they were pretty redundant, because I could have just substituted fat free/sugar free ingredients with normal recipes and get similar results.
Then there are these other cookbooks that emphasize on "a healthy twist on COMFORT foods". Seriously --I understand the whole need for comfort food recipes and all (because they are awesome of course), but I really don't need 10 "healthy" cookbooks that basically have different versions of the same old Mac & Cheese, Chilli, Sloppy Joes. It's like they (the cookbook writers) have to have a check list to check off when they are writing these cookbooks, instead of using a bit of creativity to maybe give their own twist onto them.
Giada's Feel Good Food is great because she is very creative in coming up flavor combinations for her recipes, often giving her own twist on the classics. So, instead of the oh-so-boring "miso/ ginger-soy salmon" that a lot of the diet cookbooks tend to include, she comes up with a "Grilled salmon and pineapple with avocado dressing" that has the crunchiness from the seared salmon, the sweet and tangy-ness from the pineapple, and the creaminess from the avocado dressing.Read more ›
