|Orange Balsamic Glazed Salmon|
I love to cook and having the opportunity to review Homemade with Love, Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen has been a great opportunity.
When I received the cookbook, I looked over the recipes from cover to cover. My family does not eat beef or pork and one is a vegetarian, but I looked over every recipe. I came across so many recipes that I liked and wanted to cook. Trying new dishes seems to make my family happy. And I love to see them happy, especially when I have tried something new and it turns out right. With my busy schedule it is sometimes hard to learn a new recipe, but with Homemade with Love, Jennifer Perillo offers easy to follow, yummy recipes.
I like looking for good dinner ideas, so the one recipe that I tried was the Balsamic Glazed Salmon. My family loves salmon and for years I have not been very creative in the way I make it. The recipe was easy to follow and the cook time was not too long. I have to admit, I did add a little more honey than the recipe called for (just a little). After it was done, my family came to the table and my seven year old looked at it and said, “This does not look like you made it how we like it, is this salmon?” I told him yes, sit down bless the food and eat it. The fish was the first thing he tried. I looked at him and asked, “How do you like it?” Mind you, I gave him a smaller portion than normal. He replied, “May I have more?” I had won him over. There were not any left overs. Orange Balsamic Glazed Salmon is now one of my new salmon recipes. There are other recipes I plan on trying. Next week I will be making the Easy Roasted Vegetables. I am sure they will be a hit as well.
I agree that, In HOMEMADE WITH LOVE, Jennie shares with readers how to set up a homemade kitchen, including creating the perfect pantry—from the dry goods you should always try to have on hand, to what to stock in your fridge and freezer. From there she covers the everyday basics, offering shortcuts with homemade baking mixes to use as the base for all the yummy treats you’ll want to make for the family.
