I recently started watching Trisha Yearwood’s show on the Food Network, so when I saw her book listed as one I could review I was super pumped! Trisha’s Table; My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life is a cookbook where Trisha puts her 80/20 rule into place, by making good, healthy choices 80%, while still allowing her to splurge about 20% of the time. Even with her healthy choices, she still finds way keep her recipes quite tasty and mouth-watering. The chapters in the book include breakfast, pasta, desserts, and much more.
This is one cookbook that I think I could actually cook every recipe in the book. Trish keeps it real with everyday ingredients, but also has a section on many recipes called “Trisha’s Tips” where she give you tips on how to take make it even healthier. The Power Balls on p. 57 as well as the Raspberry Chicken on p. 114 are recipes that I find quite intriguing and just a bit outside of my cooking comfort zone. The Billi’s Houdini Chicken Salad on p. 78 and the No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Squares on p. 211 look to die for and I can’t wait to get in the kitchen to try these! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys cooking and would make a great book for a new bride.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
