Giada’s Feel Good Food: Does it taste good?

You have seen her on TV. She has promoted numerous Food Network programs. She has written more than one cookbook as well. Her name is Giada De Laurentiis. I have tried several of her recipes from online, but this was the first time I have tried recipes she has published in her cookbook. I recently got ahold of a copy of Giada’s Feel Good Food, and was very excited to try the recipes. Was her cookbook good? Why not take a look?

The first recipe that I tried was Tzaiski Salmon. I loved the bright flavors of the tzazki sauce paired with the simply clean taste of the salmon. It was a satisfying meal for any week night dinner that the whole family could get behind. Just take a look at my creation of this recipe!

The second recipe that I put together was more on the snack category. It was a Vanilla, Almond, Date Smoothie. I loved the simple sweet taste that was satisfying to drink. I think this would be perfect for the upcoming summer heat. I will be making this recipe again and again.

The third recipe that I tried was the Baked Fruit with Ricotta. This recipe was jammed packed with flavorful fruit and powerful spices. It was juicy and flavorful. However, I was not a fan of the fruit when it was topped with ricotta. It was a complete texture clash. I think I will keep the recipe of the baked fruit just remove the ricotta.

I think I am going to reference more recipes out of this cookbook. What are you going to try?
