I’m not an eBook kind of girl. I like REAL cookbooks that I can put my hands on…that I can thumb through…that I can get tomato sauce all over in the kitchen…that Annie can color on when I’m not looking. But, I’m still cooking through my eCookbook stash here because I have collected quite a few from friends and fellow bloggers. And plus, I know some of you are REALLY into eBooks.
This week I’m talking about one of the first eCookbooks that I ever BOUGHT. Yes – I bought this one…most of my eBooks were given to me, but I did purchase this one. And I am so glad I did! I was new on the “real food scene” and had no idea what I was doing. Trina knew…and I bought her book. One of the best things I ever did. Real Fast Food is a GREAT cookbook…even if you’re “old” to the real food scene. (All Real Fast Food links are my affiliate link – and I have to tell you that to cover my behind.)
Trina Holden is a great cook – she’s a great person – she’s a great mom – and she’s a good friend. Real Fast Food will teach you what you need to know about real food without overwhelming you. It’s full of great tips and fabulous recipes (her ranch dressing is delish!). And it’s easy to read…and it’s printable – as you can see I did print mine. And you’re not surprised.
I chose Caesar Salad Dressing to share with y’all today (with Trina’s blessing) – even though I had the option of sharing NutButter Brownies. But since I shared Almond Flour Brownies last week, I didn’t want to overdo the brownie thing. Now that I think back – that might have been stupid. Overdo brownies? Yeah, right. Like that would EVER happen.
What did I change in this recipe? Not much – as I said, Trina’s book is about whole-foods already. I just sorta made this recipe more STACYFIED. I need to trademark that phrase. I did use Greek yogurt instead of mayo and changed a few of the ingredient amounts.
BONUS for this recipe? No anchovies. Anchovies give me the willies. *Shiver* You did know Caesar dressing usually has anchovies in it…right? If not, sorry I told you. Spoiler alert!
This recipe is so easy. You just put everything in a jar and shake it. I mean, really. Even a caveman could make this dressing – and by the way, I don’t get those commercials. Trina says this recipe will keep about a week in the fridge.
I’m not really a fan of Caesar dressing, but Barry LOVES it! So, I made this for him. I did taste it and it tastes just like the stuff from the store…but homemade with no “added ingredients.” Barry said it was really good! So, another winner for Cooking Through Stacy’s Stash!
