Cookbook Cleanup Book 15 - It's All Easy

Next up is It's All Easy by Gwyneth Paltrow.  This is her 3rd book, and the one I have cooked the least out of.  This is one of those books that I would love to really love and cook out of lots, but my children would never allow it.  But we are working on it, and them, and we tried 5 recipes.

First was Shrimp Stir-Fry, (with some alterations to the sauce) with shrimp and snow peas.  It was easy to make and very good.

Next was Turkey Meat Loaf which again, with a few modifications - was really really good.  I would definitely make it again.

From the breakfast section we tried Breakfast Crepes (aka pancakes) which again, were easy to make and very good.  The kids loved them.

I put the Chicken Enchiladas on the menu one night, but when the night came they seemed like too much work, so instead we made the sauce - left out the spice for the kdis - and served the sauce with ground beef for tacos.  It was good; The Boy was crazy about it and finished off the leftovers for lunch the next day.

I love chia pudding, so I tried the Ginger Chia Pudding with ginger and coconut water.  Easy to make and delicious.

We enjoyed everything we tried and nothing was difficult or complicated.

There's definitely more dishes I want to try - Zuni Sheet Pan Chicken, Noodle Pot Soup, Chicken Salad Nori Wrap, Chocolate Mousse (made with avocado and almond butter), Balsamic Macerated Berries with Cashew Cream, and many more.

This is a good book with some interesting ingredients and lots of nice photos.
It stays.
