Touched by such kindness

20130831-185243.jpgWhat a wonderful surprise to receive such a thoughtful gift in the mail.
My girlfriend Jen that I have know for many years…out of the blue sent me this amazing cookbook & loving card.
She knew I would love it!
Instantly, I was hooked and could not put it down.
I have made a few of the recipes and they are no less than a palate pleaser.20130831-185551.jpg

I have to honestly say this is the best chicken recipe I have ever tasted.
It is so juicy, tender and cooking on the bone always adds more flavor.
Using organic whole chicken is a must!



Lemon preserved and then marinated in Harissa sauce.




Another fabulous recipe I have now made several times is her turkey meatballs.
I did change out the arugula for kale though.



What I love most about this book as she shares in such a positive way how we can stop eating so much processed foods. -Easy recipes from making your own salad dressing to sauces.
So many more recipes I can’t wait to try.

I can’t thank my girlfriend Jen for how grateful I’m for her introducing me to this wonderful book.
What it reminds me of is this truthful quote from Michael Pollan.
