I need to start this review off with I am a HUGE Food Network lover, mainly of the legit cooking shows, not so much of the reality TV that overcompases it currently, although Cutthroat Kitchen and Chopped are good to watch.
I learned to cook regular non Italian food from Good Eats, 30 Min Meals, Emeril, If it was on Food TV I probably watched it. So when Blogging for Books offered me the chance to read and review a Food Network book I jumped for joy!
Melissa d'Arabian makes a pretty cookbook, not all of her recipes are super complicated but they are simple healthy meals that anyone, beginner or super chef can make.
The book is set up in meal format, so breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, salads, drinks etc. I think my absolute FAVORITE meal was the Tomato Sauced Baked Eggs for breakfast. They were amazing with some toast and I plan on making them often in the future!
I loved the “Blueprints” that were sprinkled throughout the book, they aren’t exactly recipes but ways to cook, techniques, and recipes bases that you could adjust to your own.
She also included the nutritional facts for each recipe which is great in a healthy cookbook! I know it isn’t super hard to type up a recipe on a site like myfitnesspal and get the facts, but it is super cool when you don’t actually have to!
If you are looking for a basic cookbook for healthy meal ideas and “Blueprints” I say supermarket healthy is a great one to try out!!
