About Live Life Deliciously
AS A FORMER FOOD EDITOR AND STYLIST with Martha Stewart and food director of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine, Tara knows how to create and showcase gorgeously themed meals for every lifestyle and occasion.
In her first cookbook, she shares more than 120 delicious showstopping recipes that are designed to impress. From leisurely weekend brunches spent over burrata cheese with grilled peaches and orange zest chimichurri to easy weeknight rice bowls with carrot-ginger dressing to a mouthwatering Italian crostata baked tart, Tara explains how to put together and master several special go-to dishes from the culinary capitals of the world to add to your repertoire.
The book also features a section where she provides a basic recipe which can then be easily transformed into two or three new recipes to make meal planning a breeze during busy weeknight schedules.
Live Life Deliciously with Tara Teaspoon shows serious foodies how to present food as an interesting and beautiful culinary experience with dishes that taste as delicious as they look.
I am always in the mood for a good cookbook. I love to read about food, recipes and peoples lives. This one by Tara Teaspoon has a lot of interesting features. I really enjoyed reading about her. I had never actually heard of her before.
That being said. Her recipes seemed a little bit over the top for me. I like to make a dinner that tastes good, is quick and easy to make, that I don’t have the ingredients for. I don’t love having to buy things I’ve never heard of or are hard to find. To me, that’s just a pain.
I did love that she had lists of pantry staples and essential equipment. And it was fun to read the little headings to each recipe. I made a biscuit recipe from this book. It was really good, my family enjoyed them. And I want to try her recipe for Focaccia bread.
I was sent a copy of Live Life Deliciously as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
