Simplify Supper Review
Who doesn’t want supper to be simpler? I love to cook. I love making dinner for my family and having everyone together for the evening meal.
I also live in the real world. There are work schedules, sports schedules, homework, church commitments, social activities, and a zillion other things competing for my family’s attention every night. And frankly, I don’t always have a couple of hours every day to cook.
Enter Simplify Supper by Krista Numbers. Simplify Supper is packed with delicious family dinners, with an emphasis on Latin and Italian foods, and I don’t think there’s a recipe in the book that takes more than 30 minutes of prep time. And most take less than that.
We tested out the Costa Rican chicken last week. It took me about 5 minutes to mix up the marinade, and the usual amount of grilling time for dinner. My family pronounced it a “keeper.” I’ve added the Simple Beef Stroganoff and Bowtie Chicken Pasta Salad to this month’s menu. I was also happy to find an easy Sopaipilla recipe that actually cooks up like it should (though the picture of tasty-looking round sopaipilla made me laugh, since the recipe calls for squares—and I’ve never seen a round sopaipilla).
If you’ve never experienced the delicious delight of a sopaipilla, you should buy this cookbook just for that recipe—and then try all the others.
In addition to the tasty and time-saving dinner and dessert recipes, Krista has filled this beautiful book with quotes, family-dinner tips and hungry-making photography. The last one is always a key to a great cookbook in my world. If just reading the recipes doesn’t hook you, the photos of every recipe in the book will pull you right in.
