deceptively delicious....

Pin It Now!

I picked up this cookbook at Costco the other day. I heard about it from a friend who saw Jessica Seinfield on Oprah talking about it. The deception is that the recipes have added vegetable & fruit purees "hidden" in them as a way of getting more fruits and vegetables into your children and just making food healthier overall. Althought the concept in not new, I do love the retro look & feel of this cookbook and most of the recipes are very easy & straightforward....so easy that Hunter could easily tackle many of them on her own. We made the macaroni & cheese recipe together for dinner the other night. It was fun cooking together and the meal was ready in about 20 minutes as promised. What I enjoy most of all is that this cookbook is so fun to look thru and very inspiring to cook from....all natural ingredients. Love that!

I see that you read A Thousand Splendid Suns. Thoughts? It's been sitting on my "have not read" shelf with The Namesake since I moved to India. They're next on my list though...now that I can focus a little bit.

Well...I loved a Thousand Splendid Suns. I thought it was well written..I enjoyed the two main characters (woman) and how their relationship blossomed over time. Most of my book club enjoyed it as well...I liked it better than the Kite Runner in fact.
Have you read "Eat,Pray,Love"? I think you would enjoy it....it is not too heavy of a read and written with a lot of self-deprecating humour. She spends most of her 4 months in India in an ashram exploring meditational practices, which was very interesting to read/learn about.
