Have you checked out Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook? I know, I know, a cookbook from an actress? Get real. But seriously, this is by far one of my favorite cookbooks so far. First of all, the pictures make you want to cook every last recipe in the darn book. And even if you don't happen to have some duck confit lying about your kitchen, there are plenty of recipes that ARE do-able for the average everyday cooks out there like myself. Roasted tomatoes? Yes, please! Kale fried rice? My daughter LOVES it. Super easy stir-fried chicken? Could cook it blindfolded now.
