Top customer reviews
The recipes are both easy to follow and based on ingredients I can get at most normal food stores (ie: Trader Joe's, Rainbow, Whole Foods, etc.). Candice also does a great job of giving options, switch this for that, save money on this, etc. so I feel like I'm getting the best out of the recipe as possible.
I've already made a number of these recipes and recommended the book to many of my friends, which must make me a satisfied customer!
1. Excellent Recipes
2. Photographs of the Final Product
3. Useful tips, advice, and guidance
Candice Kumai's cookbook is written so that it can be appreciated by all chefs (beginners to advanced). Her advice is logical and reliable, and her tips are practical. Candice wants people to eat well but she gets that we all lead busy lives and sprinkles tips throughout her book to make us better cooks, hosts, and eaters...she is smart and her book is smart too! Her book spans the globe: bran muffins, crepes, chinese chicken salad, delicious and original soup and salad ideas, veggie main courses (quinoa, sleek greek, chili, lasagna, pad thai, falafel), beautiful paella, lean protein mains (sesame-ginger chicken, hollywood burgers, date-night rack of lamb), and drinks and desserts.
This is a cookbook worth owning and a gift worth giving! It is healthy and delicious.
I hope Ms. Kumai is in her kitchen working on her next book because her recipes aim to please and they deliver...delish!
Bonus, Candice is one of the sweetest people ever! I've made the brownies a couple of times and while yummy, I can't get them to stop turning out like fluffy chocolate cake. She took the time to respond to my e-mail and give me some tips for next time!
