Food Blogger Adds Whole New Meaning To The Terms Little Black Book
Susan Russo, is the co-author of "Recipes Every Man Should Know" a little black book containing something much more valuable than girl’s telephone numbers. It contains recipes. Packed with easy to follow recipes and kitchen tips this book is geared toward the non-cooking male.
I decided to gift this book to Danny, a 20 year old college student that works for my husband. Living on his own for the first time; Danny is just learning his way around the kitchen and loving it. The book contains about 100 recipes ranging from hearty breakfast foods, to bar food, meat and potato dinners and even desserts.
Danny made two recipes from this book and from what I hear he is planning to make many more. He started with the Tortilla Pizza topping it with chopped green bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, pepperoni and a cheese blend of Cheddar and Mozzarella. His reaction: “it was pretty damn good.”
The second recipe he tried was the Poor Man's Pasta Carbonara. Never having had Carbonara before this recioe was a bit of a challenge. Not sure what to expect; he wasn't overly impressed with the look of this dish but he tells me it tasted delicious.
Danny's overall reaction of this cool little book was positive. Although not all the recipes were things he would eat on a regular basis there were quite a few that he can't wait to make.
