Cherry Bombe......is the bomb

Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) has said that, to her, cilantro tastes of dish soap; to me, beets taste of the dirt they grew in.  Therefore, I was really disappointed that the first recipe of the book was Beet Ricotta Dumplings.  When the first word is beet, I know I am never going to make that recipe!

But the book bounced back (even though there are four beet recipes in this book), with the other 90 plus recipes.  There are several in here that are so simple yet I don’t know why I’ve never seen them before!  Candied grapefruit pops!!  I’m making these little suckers this weekend!  What a wonderful idea…..and so fun!  With citrus season coming on strong, I’m imaging myself making varieties of these pops!!!

This book has a vintage feel to it.  One that I think will last and make the reader excited each time it is picked up.  A novelty of the book is that it begins with main courses and then moves into the soups & salads and sides, with apps, snacks & sips later in the book. This book will delight with recipes of manicotti with cherry tomato sauce (and who doesn’t have an over-abundance of cherry tomatoes right now from the garden????), San Beiji – Taiwanese three cup chicken, Adobong Manok Sa Gata – Filipino vinegar chicken, three-cheese cauliflower gratin, grilled oysters with gremolata & chili butter, and finally so many fun sips that I cannot begin to list them all!

Many well-known women contributed a recipe to this book and provided a little tid-bit of information (I always love those – sometimes they are my favorite part).  Women supporting women – my favorite of all!
