Cookbook Crush

It's All Good finally came up on my queue at the library, and let me tell you, this is a good cookbook!  Even in this day and age where recipes are perpetually available via the internet, there's just something about reading a recipe out of a cookbook that I prefer.  Call me old fashioned, I guess.

Gwyneth's cookbook focuses on returning to whole foods, eliminating processed foods, and creating a diet that is clean, healthy, and packed with proteins and leafy greens.  Basically, every page looks utterly healthy yet simultaneously delicious!  

While I enjoy homecooking, and enjoy trying out new recipes, but unless I have a specific recipe to follow point by point, I don't have a lot of memorized staples in my repertoire.  Particularly in regards to vegetables, which I typically prefer anyway as an entree to chicken or beef.  That's where I think this cookbook prevails; with recipes that seem easy enough to make, eventually memorize, and master without the need of skimming a cookbook page at every turn.  

A few recipes I've got my eye on...
+ grilled asparagus + portobellos with shallots + soy dressing
+ broccoli rabe with garlic + red chili
+ simple beet salad
+ carrots with black sesame + ginger
+ charred corn with chimichurri
+ roasted cauliflower + chickpeas with mustard + parsley

I got this from the library too! I made her siracha salmon with the Vietnamese salad - it was really good! But I did NOT make my own siracha, I just used the stuff from the store.

I'm not much of a cool but this one sounds like something I might actually use! And of course I love Gwyneth. :-)
