The Comfortable Kitchen: 105 Laid-Back, Healthy, and Wholesome Recipes

Alex Snodgrass. Morrow, $29.99 (272p) ISBN 978-0-06-307541-2
Recipe developer and blogger Snodgrass (The Defined Dish) puts a modern spin on comfort food in this versatile collection of nourishing dishes that never fall short on flavor. While many of her healthy, crowd-pleasing recipes—such as crunchy chicken tinga tacos, lemon avocado oil cake, and Vietnamese-inspired “Shaking Beef” salad—are paleo-compliant, readers shouldn’t be deterred by the label, as each one is packed with taste. Snodgrass also provides a vast assortment of recipes suitable for other dietary programs—including a creamy Cajun chicken and wild rice soup that is gluten-free and diary-free; and grain-free and vegetarian-friendly roasted veggie enchiladas verdes. Meanwhile, other dishes—like burgers, spicy shrimp pasta with tarragon and basil, and individual Texas “sheet” cakes—can be modified with simple ingredient substitutions or omissions. The book concludes with a chapter of appetizing cocktail recipes from Snodgrass’s husband, Clayton, that reimagine classics such as the margarita (which gets a raw egg white added to it for a frothy effect) and the Moscow mule (updated here with a mezcal and elderflower liqueur). This is perfect for busy home cooks who want to expand their repertoire of healthy recipes. Agent: Nicole Tourtelot, the Gernert Company. (Dec.)
