I asked my wife if she remembered where our copy of Betty Crocker’s Healthy New Choices came from and she says she bought it. That’s the problem with having a crummy memory and also not paying much attention to cooking for so long, I have no idea where most of our cookbooks came from. I believe her though, she’s pretty darn smart. Anyway, after a week eating fried seafood, subs, ice cream, pizza and whatnot on vacation, I figured it would be a good idea to try a few healthy recipes out for last week.
Overall my endeavors–which I’ll be writing about the next few days–turned out pretty good, though I did notice that the recipes tend to be a little light on flavor and maybe not all the ratios have been perfected. Just because you’re keeping things light doesn’t mean you can’t throw in a few extra herbs or spices to take things to the next level, you know? Luckily, I’ve learned a few things here and there that helped, but I also took some notes that will hopefully help out next time I give them a whirl. Moving forward, I’d probably double some of the more flavorful elements of the dishes to make my mouth happier.
