Trisha's Table Cookbook Review
It's no big secret that I love cookbooks, or just reading in general. I love to leisurely thumb through cookbooks and even read them cover to cover.
I've always enjoyed Trisha Yearwood's cookbooks. I don't personally own her first two, but have borrowed them from my local library before. I love how they are each centered around old family favorites. Her recipes are easy to follow and ones that my own family enjoys. So when her newest book arrived on my doorstep, I was pretty excited.
This time around Trisha focuses on a bit healthier dishes, incorporating lots of fresh produce. She shows us how she's adapted the 80/20 rule in recent years. It's okay to splurge occasionally as long as we make sure to eat healthfully the remainder of the time.
I love the nice variety of chapters listed in the book. I haven't had a chance to do any testing yet, but there are a few that quickly caught my eye.
This spinach frittata looks like a wonderful addition to the breakfast table. While I tend to reach for something sweeter in the morning, I do appreciate a filling egg dish such as this one.
Chicken salad is one of my favorites for lunch, it's something I can quickly mix up in the morning before work. Trisha's version is made with Greek yogurt along with lots of yummy fillers such as: almonds, dried cranberries and apples. I love the idea of serving it over toasted french bread slices.
I'm always a sucker for a sweet treat and these no-bake bars are calling my name. They couldn't be any easier and I love how they incorporate pretzels for that sweet and salty combo.
I think I'll enjoy having this new addition on my bookshelf. Have you gotten your hands on this new one yet? Tell me which recipe is your fave!
In case you missed it, be sure to check back on Wednesday for the beginning of a new month long series; 31 days of family meals. The whole month of July will be devoted to new main dish recipes perfect for your family! I hope you'll join me!
