I just love the take on the recipes! The beef and pickle tacos have become a regular at our home, so yummy!!! Everything I tried so far was super easy and delicious! You have to buy this book if you want to treat yourself with amazing foods for every time of the day!
I was pleasantly surprised at the number of southern and southwestern inspired dishes in the book. Make no mistake, this is a book about cooking from scratch and the recipes are inspired by dinner parties. They have a few more ingredients and the cook-times are not super suited to weeknight after work preparation. That's fine! There are a zillion books for those situations. I call these types of books "weekend recipes" when you want something dazzling and really enjoy the process. You can really tell these recipes are form the hearts of the authors and if you've seen any of the Instagram videos on the prep for this book, you know they are the real deal. Ill probably make everything in this book at least once - and there are more than a few that will be family meal favorites for years!
I bought this cookbook after seeing Jessie and Julie on Kelly Clarkson’s show. I don’t usually spend my money to make celebrities richer, but I read some reviews here that said that the recipes are not quick weeknight, quick to throw together, meals. I’m retired and in this Covid landscape, I’m home, with not a lot to do. So, spending time in the kitchen, making a meal for my family, is right where I want to be these days. I had a pork tenderloin to make for dinner. I was planning on my usual - sear it in a pan, finish cooking it in the oven, and finish with a beautiful sauce, but at the last minute, I remembered my new book and looked up “pork”. There was a recipe for “crispy pork loin” with green chile chutney. I just happened to have all of the ingredients on hand. It was the most delicious thing I’ve made in a long time. The crispy pork medallions were exceptional with the seasoned flour mix, and the chutney put the whole dish over the edge! I can’t wait to try another recipe from this cookbook. There are so many that sound delicious.
This cook book will have you laughing out loud as you earmark every I-want-to-make beautiful page. It is full of relatable kitchen experiences and clever time-saving and delicious-ensuring tips. Love, love, love!
This is one of the best cookbooks I've ever purchased. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical of the celebrity angle, but these recipes are the real deal--clearly written, explained well (even for a novice) and the results are awesome! I hope this is the first in a series as I can't wait for the next one.
This cookbook was cute and funny with some really great recipes. You can tell the authors are best friends and enjoy cooking together from the banter in the recipe headers. My only complaint (and its not really even a complaint) is that probably half the recipes have some form of chile in them which is usually too much heat for me. Still, I'm glad I got it as it will inspire me to make more southwestern food (and maybe even try a chile dish or two).
