Tara Teaspoon is an experienced chef with a passion for her craft. She has worked with Martha Stewart and was the food director of Ladies Home Journal Magazine.
She credits her mother with her creativity and enthusiasm in the kitchen. Tara worked alongside her mom in the kitchen since she was old enough to reach the counters.
Through her work Tara has access to the best equipment and ingredients, but she understands that home chefs often have to make-do with what they have.
Of course, she recommends that you have every variety of pot and pan and every small kitchen appliance. She does however, offer work arounds and often encourages readers to buy inexpensive options.
Her list of pantry staples is realistic. It includes items like garlic, chocolate and soy sauce, with nothing more exotic than red curry paste. You will have most of these items in your pantry already.
What I Cooked
Lemon-Butter Salmon with Herbs
This recipe is as simple as the name suggests. It requires little more than pan frying the salmon in butter and olive oil with garlic. This is now my go-to salmon recipe, it is absolutely the best salmon recipe I have.
French Bistro Mushroom Burgers
This is a clever twist on traditional mushroom burgers. Instead of topping the burger with mushrooms, you actually add sautéed mushrooms to the burger patties. This tastes fabulous with the herb seasonings. I will be making this again!
This cookbook is a great option for home chefs. It includes lots of simple yet flavorful recipes. Plenty of interesting side dishes, easy main courses and tempting desserts. Live Life Deliciously is perfect for cooks looking to spice up their traditional American cuisine.
As a former food editor and stylist for Martha Stewart, Tara knows how to create and showcase gorgeously themed meals for every lifestyle and occasion.
In her first cookbook, she shares more than 120 delicious show stopping recipes that are designed to impress. From leisurely weekend brunches spent over burrata cheese with grilled peaches and orange zest chimichurri to easy weeknight rice bowls with carrot-ginger dressing to a mouthwatering Italian crostata baked tart, Tara explains how to put together and master several special go-to dishes from the culinary capitals of the world to add to your repertoire.
The book also features a section where she provides a basic recipe which can then be easily transformed into two or three new recipes to make meal planning a breeze during busy weeknight schedules.
Live Life Deliciously with Tara Teaspoon shows serious foodies how to present food as an interesting and beautiful culinary experience with dishes that taste as delicious as they look.
