In Happy Food, Bettina Campolucci Bordi shares a collection of easy and delicious plant-based recipes that anyone can incorporate into their busy life. Whether you’re looking to eat more veggies or have decided to turn vegan but don’t want to compromise on taste, this is the book for you. Bettina’s philosophies are simple: she believes that food is meant to make you happy! Whether it’s love at first sight because a dish looks so colorful and delicious, or at the first hit of flavors when they burst into your mouth, everything you eat should put a smile on your face. With recipes including Hearty Buckwheat Waffles, a tasty Korean Pancake, a delicious yet quick One Pot Curry in a Hurry, and the decadent Hazelnut Bites, Bettina proves that nutritious food doesn’t have to be restrictive. Happy Food is designed to take you through your busy day by including ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, meals for one, desserts, and snacks, and will easily meet the needs of any modern household. Bettina is also a firm believer that meat-free food doesn’t have to cost the earth – you’ll find recipes containing ingredients that can easily be sourced from your local supermarket, and she even uses white potatoes! Her passion and expertise lies in how to use everyday ingredients, and she makes them tasty in the simplest possible way. There’s an opening chapter on plant-based building blocks – such as nut milks, basic methods, and home-made bread – but the joy of Bettina’s cooking is that if you are time-poor, she encourages you to buy a good-quality store-bought versions of these instead: her message is that you can still have a nutritious and tasty meal, even if you do incorporate a few shortcuts. Inspired by food from the countries where Bettina has lived and worked – Tanzania, Sweden, Italy, Spain, and Bulgaria – this is vegan food to make you smile!
A beautiful, full-color collection of 100 tasty, simple recipes for unforgettable meals and gatherings from the enormously popular star of the ABC sitcom The Middle and Food Network’s Patricia Heaton Parties.
A busy working mother raising four boys, Patricia Heaton couldn’t be more comfortable playing “America’s mom” on hit television shows such as Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle. Though she may be a Hollywood star today, this down to earth, practical Midwesterner likes to have fun entertaining her loved ones and has never forgotten her roots.
Growing up in the suburbs of Cleveland in the 1960s, Patricia’s hard-working parents—like the characters she plays on TV—didn’t have a lot of extra money. With five kids to raise, extras like movies and restaurant meals were special treats. Home cooked dinners were rib-filling basics: meatloaf, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken, pork chops, burgers, fish sticks, and pot roast. Yet her mother didn’t let a tight budget stop her from dreaming big, inspired by Julia Child.
On her Food Network show Patricia Heaton Parties, Patricia celebrates her culinary beginnings, transforming familiar American fare into delicious, sophisticated, lightened versions for entertaining family and friends. In this fabulous cookbook, Patricia shares her budget-friendly, simple, and deeply satisfying recipes. Some will be on the healthier side, and all will be inspired by the dishes she loved growing up, the favorites she’s relied on to feed her hungry boys, and the scrumptious showstoppers she serves at her fun-filled, casual parties and get-togethers.
Patricia Heaton’s Food for Family and Friends features 100 recipes for appetizers, sides, and main dishes, as well as cocktails and “guest goodies”—little treats to send home with your guests, including:
- Pot Roast and Roasted Root Vegetable Hash with Poached Eggs
- Bite-Size Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli
