The Skinnytastes Cookbook

The Skinny Taste Cookbook via Besotted Blog

Gina Homolka’s, Skinnytaste blog is one of my go-to’s when I’m stuck for meal ideas (full disclosure, I don’t cook or eat anything that is reduced fat, so I will just use the whole version for her recipes). The recipes are usually very simple to prepare and I have found many that are toddler approved. One of our favorites from her blog is the mini broccoli omelettes, these come together in minutes and supposedly are perfect for freezing but we have never had leftovers to try that. Gina has an active community and from her crazy Pinterest following (some recipes have been pinned over 700,000 times if that’s any indication of how wildly popular she is).

I have not bought this book yet, but I have had the opportunity to peruse it in person and it is gorgeous! The photos are by famed food photographer Penny De Los Santos, which should give you an indication of the quality of this book. I recently borrowed it from the library, which was a quick download on my Kindle, if your library has this option it has been like a ‘kid in a candy store’ fun to preview cookbooks and read novels that I ordinarily wouldn’t purchase, I highly recommend the service!

  1. I really love all of her recipes – some of them appear in my kitchen on a regular basis – specifically her chicken Milanese is just perfect. I got her book recently as well but I haven’t had much of a chance to test it out so thanks for the reminder.

  2. Love, love, love Skinnytaste recipes! Picadillo is amazing and super easy and versatile. Butternut squash pasta dish is absolutely lovely. Everything I make seems to turn out better than expected. She offers easy substitutions which is great when you have guests who might have food aversions.
