I've been following Lori Lange, the genius behind "The Recipe Girl" blog for quite some time. When I learned that she was writing a cookbook, I was really happy for her and of course, for me too. I now have a piece or her legacy right at home, how cool is that?
Her recipes are easy to follow and the book has a wide range to choose from, including gluten-free, vegetarian and dairy-free recipes. There are also party menus and tips for easy entertaining. A little bit for everybody.
It was really hard to choose one recipe to share with you since they all look really good. I had to settle for one and I picked this crazy-good chilled strawberry and coconut milk soup. I've never had anything like this before and she is right to say this would make a great Summer appetizer.
This soup was creamy and refreshing with a burst of coconut on each sip. There is nothing I would change about this recipe except for the quantities to make more.
Well done and thank you, Recipe Girl!
