healthy living // it’s all good: meal # 1

when i discovered gewneth paltrow’s new cookbook “it’s all good” i just had to get my hands on it! in pure excitement i shared it with you all and let you know that my dear friend meredith & i were going to attempt to get together once a week over the summer and make a meal for our men from this pretty little cookbook. 
MEAL #1 : 
Go-To Tomato Sauce (page 273) 
*****5 STARS. 
easy, delicious, & saves well!
Turkey Meatballs (page 105) 
*****5 STARS. 
OMG! these melted in our mouths. so fun to make & so quickly eaten up. they were a hands down favorite. bruce keeps asking when i am going to make more & john couldn’t believe turkey could taste so good! SCORE.   
Spicy Brussels Sprouts (page 154)
****4 STARS. 
everyone ate them which was a surprise & a plus as both of the boys made mention of their dislike of brussels sprouts! i was also pleasantly surprised! 
obviously i need to work on my food photography skills. gweneth’s pictures are far more lovely than mine! 
i encourage you to grab her book & try some new things!!! then, let me know all about it!
