Once again...

Never renew your resolution to cook healthier for your family right before the holidays. I can't even count the number of times we had pizza in the last 6 weeks!
Now that life is back to normal, i got a chance to try yet another outstanding cookbook from Amazon. This one is not necessarily geared towards the healthy lifestyle but all of her recipes are so simple and create outstanding taste combinations that I had to ty them. Frankly, the more gourmet recipes I try, the more I realize that beginning a meal with whole foods is almost always better for you, even if it does include some heavy cream or other such indulgences! I've tried two of her recipes and am very impressed. She starts off each section with a simple recipe and then explains why it works and ncludes other spinoffs using the same idea. It has actually helped me understand how flavors work together so that I can be more of an imporvisational cook myself! Recipes forthcoming...
