The Kitchen Flowers
Around the Globe Cooking; 200+ Delicious Recipes
This book captures health and wellness and a bold and mindful approach to a healthy eating lifestyle. It celebrates the gastronomic and cultural customs of American, Mexican, Greek, Hispanic, Italian, Indian and Chinese. Something else to look forward to in this book are gobs of goodies for cooking fun and drinks that will blow your mind. Make your family flip when you serve up these dishes at dinnertime. No matter what’s bringing you to the table I hope you’ll find new recipes you can’t wait to share and enjoy everything from meats to beverages and breakfast to dinner. Some that may seem rich or heavy by today’s standards. Prepare them as is or change them and substitute lighter ingredients to suit your own taste or dietary needs. Expand your kitchen repertoire with authentic recipes from turnip bake, cobb egg salad, lemon sesame pistachio crusted chicken, sushi, pork and shrimp pad thai, cajun sirloin with mushroom leek sauce, chicken lombardy, shrimp scampi, mushrooms with shirataki noodles, roasted butternut squash soup, maple bacon wrapped carrots and hazelnut coconut bread. Get fancy in the kitchen if you enjoy that sort of thing. Keep the fridge stocked with raw veggies and fruit. I find it helpful to wash them as soon as I bring them home from the market. Some veggies like carrots, celery, sweet peppers and cucumbers can be sliced ahead of time. Keep washed mixed greens on hand so that you can always throw together a quick salad. Remember almost any leftover can be turned into an omelet or stir fry the next day for a whole new meal.
