We have all enjoyed this cookbook and tried some of the recipes - and so far have been very pleased. The skinny fries are fun to make - and the lemon drizzle cake? Fabulous...
I first discovered Clodagh McKenna when she was on Rachael Ray about a year ago and ran out to buy her cookbook Homemade. I love Clodagh's fresh, seasonal style of cooking and all of her dishes have a homey feel to them. I was thrilled to discover her new book Clodagh's Kitchen Diaries and plan to cook my way through the book month by month. I love how the book is organized and the stories that accompany each recipe. I loved the Red Velvet Cupcakes in February and her modern twist on Bacon & Cabbage Soup was delicious on a cold winter day in March. Of course for St. Patrick's Day, I will be making the Beef and Guinness Stew (and the chocolate mint cupcakes!). I can't wait to delve into April in New York. The recipes are easy to follow with clear instructions, and many are perfect for weeknight dinners. And, throughout it all, you feel like Clodagh is cooking right beside you in the kitchen. I can tell that this is going to be one of those cookbooks that I use over and over again.
This is the latest recipe book from Clodagh which is much more substantial than her previous books (more than 300 pages long). The layout is easy to follow as it is broken down into each month of the year with recipe and meal ideas for special occassions throughout the year. It is easy to follow, very stylish and beautifully illustrated. I have personally made the Guinness and Beef Stew recipe which was delicious and everyone in the family loved it! The smoked slamon pate which I also made couldn't be easier! Many of the recipes in the book have also featured in Clodagh's restaurant in Dublin. Ones which I have tasted and loved include the mini gourmet burgers, the crab cakes, and of course some of the cakes including the coffee and walnut cake which is the best! This is a book to pick up on a regular basis throughout the year for wonderful recipe ideas and a bit of stylish inspiration for a meal!
I got tyhem for my Wife and Daughter and picked out which one was more effective for each one of them. They loved them and will share them with each other...
Very pleased with the structure , pictures and recipes of this cookbook. I have cooked several and my family is pleased with them.
