Cookbook Club – Weeknights with Giada,204,203,200_.jpg

January’s Cookbook Club brought in recipes from Giada de Laurentiis‘s Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp Dinner. Overall this book went over well. The recipes were actually simple and easy to follow, with little to no tweaking needed to make them work – most of the changes were done by preference of the person cooking (e.g. the Apricot Oat Bars were made with cherries instead of apricots and the Creamy Sweet Potato and Rosemary Soup was made with a bit less broth to make it thicker). The only small complaint was that not every recipe had a picture, and sometimes it helps to know what the final product should be. Everyone enjoyed the dishes that were shared and thought the book was true to its name, they could could easily be made during the week.

We Tried the Following Recipes:
Creamy Sweet Potato and Rosemary Soup
Penne in Almond Sauce
Pastina with Peas and Carrots
Peach and Cherry Frittata
Apricot (in our case Cherry) Oat Bars
