Genius Recipes Cookbook Review – 4.8/5 STARS

By |May 25th, 2015|Genius Recipes|0 Comments

These past couple weeks I've been testing out recipes from Genius Recipes Cookbook. I pretty much decided I am inlove with this cookbook! OBSESSED really. Here's the deal. There was only one recipe that was so-so, and it was really just my preference...which could easily be adjusted (less vinegar). The rest that I made were [...]

No Knead Bread – Genius Recipes Cookbook Review

By |May 22nd, 2015|Genius Recipes|1 Comment

Garlic Green Beans – Genius Recipes Cookbook Review

By |May 15th, 2015|Genius Recipes|3 Comments

Next up on Genius Recipes, Garlic Green Beans. I've never really dabbed into cooking vegetables much. It kinda scares me. I feel like they are so easily overcooked, undercooked, whatever. Also, my husband is SO PICKY when it comes to vegetables and texture. He pretty much hates cooked veggies. Isn't that nice? Enter, the genius way of [...]

Simplest Roast Chicken – Genius Recipes Cookbook Review

By |May 13th, 2015|Genius Recipes|1 Comment

The first recipe to review from Genius Recipes is Simplest Roast Chicken. This recipe stood out to me because like the title, it was so simple! Also, you put your oven to 500 FRIGGIN DEGREES! Oh man. You should've seen me. I was checking the oven every few minutes, TERRIFIED I was going to burn [...]

By |May 8th, 2015|Genius Recipes|0 Comments
