I'm a cooking machine

This cookbook is hot fire, lol. Seriously y'all, you need to get this in your life. I don't care if you can't cook, you still need this book. I am a super picky eater and I haven't made anything I didn't like yet. I learned about it on Spiced Honey's blog (which I lurk on, lol). She raved about it so I thought, why not? I promise you will not regret it.

Recipes I've tried so far:

Hearty Black Bean Chili with Homemade Tortillas
Chicken Parmesan with homemade tomato sauce
Pizza Bites
Buttery Rice
So-Serious Suffocated Pork Chops (last night's dinner. A-MA-ZING!)
Broccoli with Garlic and Parmesan (with last night's dinner too. A-MA-ZING TOO)
Roasted Garlic Fingerling Potatoes (I love me some garlic potatoes)
Broiled Chicken
Curried Chicken
Cheddar Garlic Biscuits (I've blogged about these before. BEWARE: Don't eat the whole pan. People will talk about you. And you just might get sick)
Grilled Garlic Steak

One of the things I like about this book is that they provide a main dish paired with side dishes. So if you are cooking challenged you can see what goes with what. If you want any of the recipes I posted tell me which one and leave me your email address. Once you try one recipe you will happily run out to buy the cookbook.

Anybody have any cookbooks they would like to recommend? MamaCount got me a Better Home's and Garden cookbook but I haven't used it or liked it nearly as much as my Get 'em Girls' Guide.

yeah, this is a good one. They have a website you shoudl check out. I actually borrowed the book from the library first. The recipe for the brown sugar glazed Salmon is the TRUTH you hear me........I've used that glazed as a dipping sauce for so many other foods.

At any rate, yeah this one is a good one. I also recommend: Make it Simple with G Garvin, Chef Jeff Cooks, and cooking with Style with Delilah

Well, I love cooking but lately I've been running out of ideas, making the same things over and over. I've never really cooked from cookbooks before so I can't recommend any, but I will mos def check this one out. Great post, thanks a million.
