To me, the point of home cooking is both to save money but also to eat healthier. I want to avoid buying processed, high sodium, high fat expensive take out!! So in my mind, healthy dinners don't rely on pre-packaged processed convenience foods, variations on heavy cream (cream, half and half, sour cream, packaged cream cheese, etc). I am lactose intolerant for one!! Almost all the recipes in this book are full of cream. That's a lazy way of adding flavour to food. And I couldn't feed my young child most of this food because she should not be consuming the amount of sodium most of these recipes would have. Is it any wonder they don't give the nutritional information per portion?!
I am really not opposed to bacon and butter and I usually use that stuff in moderation with a massive dose of veggies. These are veggie-deprived recipes (maybe because the author thinks veggies need to be done up on the day of...which is fine...but then I really didn't need this book).
Some examples of processed food/ rich additions (I am quickly flipping through the book right now):
- Elegant Mushroom Cups: 4 Tbsp of margarine (yuck) and 1 cup heavy cream.Read more ›
