The Real Girl’s Kitchen by Haylie Duff

The Real Girl’s Kitchen, released by actress Haylie Duff in 2013, is essential for all people trying to get their cookin’ on. The cookbook was born from a blog that Duff started on which she shared entertaining tips, simple but elegant recipes, and general kitchen hacks. The blog became a favorite for her fans and foodies alike, so it was only natural that a cookbook was her next step!

This filling cookbook provides recipes for all occasions, from green smoothies to salads to snacks for your cheat days. It’s perfectly balanced to really appeal to the “real girl” who maybe wants to stay healthy, but can definitely reason having a cookie or two.

All of the recipes in Duff’s cookbook are completely original, so you won’t find them anywhere else. One of the recipes with the best reviews is her grape, pecan, and chicken salad, which looks more like a treat than a well-balanced lunch. And, for the bakers of the family, there is Duff’s totally original take of an apple turnover made with a crescent roll! Not only are these little apple pie crescent rolls scrumptious, but they’re also totally adorable and the perfect serving size for a little “cheat” when you’re in the mood for something sweet!

For more sweet treats, try her chocolate dipped bacon paired with vanilla ice cream or her Nutella pizza with a homemade crust! Yummy!

The recipes are said to be fun, easy, and whimsical as Duff ties in stories along with them. This book is also unique, as she includes two recipes for dogs! And, for the kale-lovers, there is a whole section for you! So, don’t miss out!
