So, here it is. I haven't stopped cooking. I have actually been cooking quite a bit, but I haven't been cooking through one at a time, I was a bit in a wandering mood this winter. I have been traveling some, but also have been cooking one recipe from one book and another from other books. I finally finished five from this one.
Up first, was Greens with Gorgonzola Dressing. I really like blue cheese, so this was a winner for me. I am the only lover of Gorgonzola in my household, so I ate this for several work lunches. It keep well for those few days.
While reading the recipe for Farfalle with Broccoli, I wasn't sure about the anchovies. Giada specifically addresses this concern that it will melt away and leave nothing but flavor. Josh came home and smelled the fishy smell, but I didn't mention them to the kids and they both ate seconds. It was quite delicious.
I made Little Stars with Butter and the Basic Marinara Sauce in February. I made the sauce and froze most for later. I used it on stuffed shells and it worked out great.
Gnocchi with Thyme Butter Sauce was my final recipe for this challenge. I wasn't sure if it would be a hit, but everyone ate it. Delaney especially liked it.
I have several other recipes I want to try. I really thought I would try her Citrus Olive Oil and Chili Oil. I am sure I will come back to this book. I have been cooking out of one of our church's cookbooks and well as Lucy Buffett's Lu Lu's Cookbook. One of those will be up next!
