Her simple recipe for slow-roasted tomatoes was a revelation; slice a batch of vine-ripened tomatoes horizontally in half (cut into thirds to cut down on cooking time), place seed side up in the oven on a baking sheet, add a bit of olive oil and a tiny pinch of salt on each slice, stick it in the oven at 275 degrees for 3-5 hours, and voila--the most flavorful roasted tomatoes that beat jarred sun-dried tomatoes any day. I used them in her recipe for the arugula salad with crostini melted with smoked mozzarella and it was the easiest meal ever. I used some of the tomatoes today with melted smoked mozzarella on a baguette with butter lettuce sprinkled with the balsamic dressing, and it made for an incredibly delicious and quick lunch that my husband loved.
I had made some chicken stock using the frame of a leftover roast chicken and incorporated her easy recipe for chicken dumplings (flour, baking powder, and half and half), tossing spoonfuls of the mix into the broth, and it was delicious. Page 44 includes a handy matrix that provides common equivalents for some of the more health-oriented ingredients she uses that you can use to substitute if you can't get your hands on agave nectar, Vegenaise, spelt flour, etc. The recipes are flexible so that you can make them as traditional or healthy as you want, and she is very quick to accommodate both audiences with helpful tips within the recipes. Aside from a few recipes that require more prep work like her roast duck, most of the recipes are family friendly and easy to prepare with a short ingredient list for most. The cookbook is also liberally sprinkled with poignant vignettes and photos from Gwyneth's childhood reflecting the impact of her father on her life and includes beloved recipes passed down from her family members. In the process I also gleaned some great tips on how to incorporate your children in the cooking process; she offers quick tips on how she modifies condiments/ingredients in recipes to accommodate her children's palates. As a mother of two girls under the age of 7 who like things very "simple," I appreciated that perspective tremendously. Beautiful photos, fun reading, great recipes that you can actually use for the modern family and can whip up in a pinch...in short, a great cookbook.
Be sure to try the Caramelized Brussels Sprouts recipe; this was one I had avoided since I've never cooked Brussels Sprouts before, and the recipe seemed too simple to be tasty. My relative encouraged me to try this, and it is UNBELIEVABLY good. The sprouts come out nutty and rich; be sure to use plenty of kosher salt and lemon juice. I've used a package from Trader Joe's and microwaved the bag for 3 minutes in lieu of steaming, and it worked out fine. I've made this about nine times now...still loving this.
I read this one first and although there's some cute anecdotes and a few recipes that look interesting, if you have more than very basic cooking skills, you'll find yourself shaking your head a bit as you flip the pages here. Many of her 'recipes' are variations of a very simple and basic recipe and many are so basic that you really don't need a recipe at all. As an example, there's a recipe for a turkey blt...that offers nothing new and surprising, just common sense how to assemble the sandwich. So when I finished this book I was left with the overall feeling that there's not much here that isn't already obvious to most people who like to cook.
Fortunately, the opposite was true of the Cheryl Crow book, which blew me away. Page after page of creative, and mouth-watering recipes from her personal chef, that are also healthy. There's so many I can't wait to make and tonight am starting with a slow-cooked braised chicken taco recipe that is easy, healthy and looks delicious.
