Book Review: Cook Like A Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons, and Culinary Secrets by Anne Burrell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book not only gives you the recipes but idiot proof cooking directions in the recipe. I only gave this book 3 stars because while the directions were very easy to follow I would not make 90% of the items in this book.

I did try two recipes though, Truffle Deviled eggs and Mac and Cheese.I almost never follow a recipe to the t we substitute out things we will not eat and replace with things we will. 

First off lets be honest I left the truffle oil out so I followed the directions and made deviled eggs. Why you may ask would I leave the main ingredient out? Simple have you seen the price of truffle oil. $24 a bottle for a small bottle of something I will probably never use again. But the rest stayed in. see pictures:


Boiling the eggs 13 min exactly

Final Product

Final verdict the kids loved them even the one kid who usually wont eat them.

I also tried the mac-in-cheese This one I followed. I found it strange that it called for spicy brown mustard in it. It was easy enough to follow but the overall response to this one was pass.
