review: supermarket healthy by melissa d'arabian

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen (that is, when I'm not at work or reading!), so I love trying out new recipes. I generally bring what I make to work (people working in newsrooms love baked goods) and the recipes I tried out from Melissa d'Arabian's Supermarket Healthy were tested on my coworkers. Although my coworkers said they enjoyed everything I brought in from Supermarket Healthy, I was disappointed at times. With the Cinnamon Popovers, for example, I felt there was too much butter.
If I try these again in the future, I won't use butter to grease the muffin tin. The recipes that were cooking rather than baking were much better. The Grilled Zucchini Pizza Bites were a huge hit (one person told me I should bring them in again) and I loved them too. This cookbook's angle though is "eating well without spending a lot." While the recipes do go for a healthier take by using low-sodium broth and the like, low-cost ingredients are not necessarily being used.
3/5
