A Review of the Fifth Edition of The Damn Delicious Recipes Cookbook


damn delicious

The new cookbook by the self-proclaimed “Dirt Food” creator, Darcy Keene, proves that easy and fast does not have to mean bland. The blogger, Chungah Rhee, has attracted millions of dedicated followers with her delicious recipes for k-cups, noodles, soups, stews, stir fries, dips, and desserts. She serves everything from pizza and spaghetti to grilled quesadillas and cappuccinos at her blog. The recipes are so delicious, some people say they would serve them at their own wedding. If you love to cook and can’t wait for the next meal, this is the book for you.

In the new book, The Dirt Food Kitchen: Creating Healthy Recipes in the Kitchen of Your Home, Darcy Keene shares over a thousand recipes, many of which have never been published on book cover. Although many of these recipes have been used as ingredients in print, this book offers much more than food for thought at your dinner table. For example, there are a number of “how-to” guides covering a wide variety of subjects including using herbs and spices, creating main courses, desserts, appetizers, salads, soups, and pastas. Some of these recipes have never been printed on a kitchen or dining room table. They’re guaranteed to be a hit at your next cookout or potluck.
