MAINLY new never before seen recipes with a couple of amazing ones from her blog,
This review is from: The Picky Palate Cookbook (Hardcover-spiral)
I am a BIG fan of the picky-palate site and I cook primarily with her recipes since they always turn out fantastic and end up being staple meals that my family requests over and over.
When I cook with Jenny's recipes I never feel like I am wasting my time or money. Shopping for ingredients is easy (hit up Trader Joes and Costco for almost everything you need). She provides a "Pantry Must-Have" list in the beginning which makes whipping up her recipes mid-week even easier.
What most impressed me about the book is that it did not end up being a bunch of recipes that I have already seen over the years on her site (unlike some other bloggers). There are a tiny handful of items in the book from her site, but they are the seriously delicious ones.
I pre-ordered the book and spent the past weekend cooking up a storm around here: Oven baked BBQ Chicken (on the cover), Weeknight Mashed Potatoes, Apple pie and Buttermilk Pancakes. The "Momma's Homemade Mozz.-Stuffed Meatballs - these freeze well- (pg99)" and "Green Chili Chicken and Lime soup (pg145) are to die for.
Excited to tell everyone I know about this recipe book and I wish Jenny Flake all the best!
