Book Review: The Chopped Cookbook

ver again let the question, “What's for dinner?” stump you. The Chopped Cookbook features secrets for combining pantry staples to make exciting meals.
If you’ve ever looked into your fridge, hoping for inspiration to strike, let The Chopped Cookbook help you shake up weeknight dinners. Just as each basket on Chopped has many tasty possibilities, so, too, do the contents of your refrigerator. By showing you how to spin your favorite ingredients into 188 fun, doable, and delicious recipes—including go-to guides for making salad dressings and pan sauces, four-ingredient market baskets that can go in many tasty directions, and ideas for ways to reinvent pasta dinners—the culinary masterminds at Food Network set you up for mealtime victory every night.

I have a major weakness for cookbooks. Just ask the bookshelves in my kitchen! So, when the opportunity came up to review this one, I couldn't resist. I'm a big fan of the show. Now, if you're also a fan of the show, you're probably worried that this book is filled with recipes with insane ingredients like they use.  I am happy to report that I didn't see a single ingredient that I haven't used in recipes before. Whew! Plus, nearly every recipe includes a gorgeous photo of the completed food. I loved the fact that it gave a list of ingredients that could add specific types of flavor to your food. It also includes a great section on how to choose fresh fruits and veggies. If you love to eat, love to cook and love food porn..or heck, any of the above, I highly recommend this cookbook!
