When I learned that Emilie from The Clever Carrot had inked a cookbook contract, I was super excited. I just knew everything in it would be mouth-watering, healthy, easy and super delicious. When I got my copy of the book, I was not disappointed. There are so many things I love about this cookbook. Let me just name a few of them!
I like the names of the chapters in the Table of Contents. They speak to me. It’s things like ‘Back to Basics’ which is making staples like broths.
There’s a chapter titled ‘Process This’ which focuses on clever uses of your food processor for quick and easy prep.
Then there’s a chapter of versatile marinades that do double and triple duty. You’ll find that in the chapter called ‘Freezer Marinades’
Another outstanding behind-the-scenes aspect of Emilie’s fabulous cookbook is that she did all the photography herself. Since I did the same thing with my cookbook, I know the intensity of the responsibility needed for making this dream come true. It’s not easy. Not only must you be a darn good cook, but you have to be multi-talented with things like food styling and photography. That’s what Emilie is~one multi-talented dear friend who’s giving you, me and the world a part of her heart.
Unintimidating, easy-to-follow and simple recipes that translate into elegant nutritious eating, The Clever Carrot has indeed proven that she is clever crafty talented home cook!
Finally, I love love chicken for so many reasons. Most of all, it’s healthy. I’m always looking for creative and easy ways to prepare and serve chicken. Here’s more great ideas from Positive Health Wellness ’20 Easy 15 Minute Chicken Dinner Recipes’!
