I wasn't thrilled to be honest with you about this next cookbook. Once again, I have not cooked anything from it prior to this week. I can see why.
I am talking about The Smart Diet by Better Homes and Gardens.This cookbook is poorly laid out. There is so much empty space and "fancy graphics" on each page that the recipe was in one tiny corner of each page. The only photographs were not always of the completed recipe but of one of the ingredients in the recipe.
I decided to make Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup.Here are the ingredients I used.While the soup was delicious, I was disappointed with this cookbook and may just be listing it soon on Amazon.
I would however, like to share with you one of my favorite kitchen tools - Cuisinart's Smart Stick Hand Blender.I use this instead of a blender to blend my soups. Very powerful and so easy to use.
Do you have an immersion blender? What soups do you like to make?
I'll tell you who you are."
