As you probably know, I’m a huge fan of Cooking Light magazine. I am a member of their blogger community and make their recipes at home on a regular basis. I love their healthy take on classics as well as the vast array of ethnic recipes adapted for easy at-home preparation. Their newest cookbook is a real standout. Cooking Light Global Kitchen: The World’s Most Delicious Food Made Easy is jam-packed with amazing recipes. The book is written by David Joachim, the New York Times bestselling author and writer of more than 40 cookbooks.
I don’t gush over things people send me just because they are sending me free stuff (even though free stuff is always nice). But this cookbook is great — really great! It’s full of useful recipes that look delicious, are easy to make, healthy and always seem to just turn out right.
So many of the recipes looked good that I invited my Mother-In-Law over and we made a feast by cooking up a bunch of the recipes. Quick Lamb Kofta, Roasted Potatoes with North Indian Spices and Cashew Chicken were served up with great success. That’s just the first few I’ve tried too; their are so many I want to try that it’s daunting. Here’s a few from my must try list:
- Vegetable Samosas with Mint Chutney
- Koren Stewed Chicken with Spinach
- Lemongrass Shrimp over Rice Vermicelli and Vegetables
- Cashew Fudge
- Chocolate Baklava
- Lamb and Chickpea Tagine
- Champagne-Browned Butter Chicken
- Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms and Mascarpone
- Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas
And that’s just a very small sampling of the recipes that look amazing in this book. Of course the best part is that since they are from Cooking Light, you know that they are also healthy.
Actually, no, that’s not the best part. The best part is that Cooking Light sent me two copies of the book. One for me, and one for me to give away. So, go ahead and enter my giveaway. Since I’m a fairly small blog, I don’t get a million entries so there is a great chance you’ll win.
