We wanted to love this cookbook. We did. The design is friendly and accessible. The recipes are relatively easy. And we like Ellie Krieger's philosophy, which is basically: moderation. Go ahead and cook with that egg yolk or with that beef, but don't go overboard. And substitute healthier options when you can.
But we only liked this cookbook. We tried three of the recipes, the Olive Burgers, the Lemony Lentil soup and the New Tuna Noodle Casserole (which we modified somewhat). And nothing really knocked our socks off. They were all fine. They were quite edible. But they weren't fabu.
Still, we have So Easy (Hardcover) in really nice condition that we'd like to give away. So, if you think you want to give Ellie's recipes a whirl, leave a comment on this post by 10:00 p.m. PST, Sunday, January 10th and we'll randomly choose a winner.
If you're the lucky one, we'll email you on Monday, January 11th.
