The Recipe Hacker
The Recipe Hacker by Diana Keuilian
Diana has a popular blog which can be found here. This is a cookbook with some recipes from the blog, but many new ones as well. Diana loves food, but realizes that a lot of the food that we eat is not very healthy. So, she has found ways to make yummy things without as many of the bad things. All of the 100 recipes in this book are made without grains, gluten, dairy, cane sugar or soy. Wow! The beginning of this cookbook gives you some ideas of the healthier ingredients that are swapped with the not-so-healthy ingredients.
The book is split up into 5 sections: breakfasts, appetizers, main dishes, sides, and desserts. I am a very picky eater but there is almost nothing in this cookbook that I wouldn't eat. It all sounds so yummy! I also love that every single recipe in this cookbook has a picture to go with it. When I am cooking something I like to have a general idea of how it is supposed to look when it is done. This book definitely allows for that. Not only that, but the pictures are gorgeous. They are done very well.
All of the recipes look fairly easy to make as well. They ingredients are listed as well as just a couple clear instructions. I also like that each recipe tells you the prep time, the cook time, and how many servings it makes. One of our big problems in America is overeating. By knowing the serving size it will make it easier to control this. Each recipe also has a "quick tip" from Diana. These are all things to make the cooking process easier for you.
I am definitely a fan of this cookbook and Diana's recipes! I will be using this in my kitchen all the time from now on! Go buy this cookbook today! I highly recommend it!
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
