Eat What You Want

125 Recipes for Real Life

Eat What You Want is Gaby’s 3rd cookbook, due out Spring 2020 and it's all about recipes for real life: no deprivation, no starvation, just Gaby's signature mash-up of bright flavors when you want it, and hearty and satisfying when you need it. And as always, simple enough to make during the week but special enough to serve up on the weekend. All of the dishes in this book will show you that you don’t necessarily need to ditch the carbs/meat/dairy/sugar in order to feel awesome. How refreshing is that?! Complete with menu ideas for the ultimate party, Eat What You Want is an invitation/permission slip/pep rally for you to let go of all the noise around what you choose to eat and choose joy instead.

1 of 2 of the Detroit style pizzas we (Diego + fam) feasted on this (finally) chilly pizza Friday!
I’ve never met a fry I didn’t like 🍟 but if they taste good, AND they’re healthy, it means I’m have 3x as many. 

This is one of my #whole30 creations where I:
1. took some veggies sitting in my fridge (carrots 🥕& zucchini🥒) cut them into friez
2. dredged them in egg then with almond flour + spice mix (⬇)
3.oven roasted them, turning halfway and just watching them as they got browned & cwispy!

SPICE MIX: I had some leftover whatsgabycookin seasoning mix from when I made her blackened salmon, and I added this to the almond flour to heat things up ♨️ I swear that when she says this is good with everything, she means it!
•cayenne pepper
•onion powder
•black pepper
•dried thyme
•dried basil
•dried oregano

ALSO if you’re in the Seattle area, have you tried Karam’s Garlic Sauce, I swear it’s the best condiment ever 😳😍

Usually under or around 15 dollars too, what a steal! A sheet pan meal can feed up to 4 people easily. This dish is great served over rice. Watch the IGTV for full step-by-step recipe featuring these ingredients: chicken breast , pineapple , red onion, and green bell pepper! Make this, it’s a hit every time. And all done in the oven in one pan. Can’t beat that clean up! 😉

Apple Galette 🍎🍏🍎🍏⁣ 

Think Apple pie, but better! This was actually so easy and a big crowd pleaser! 10/10 recommend, especially if you can bake it in a cast iron pan. Recipe inspired by ‘What’s Gaby Cooking’ 🥰⁣
• 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (thawed) - made ours from scratch but store bought works fine!⁣
• 1.5 cups almonds lightly toasted ⁣
• 2/3rd cup sugar ⁣
• 2 eggs lightly beaten ⁣
• 1 tsp vanilla extract ⁣
• 2 tbsp melted unsalted butter ⁣
• 4 large apples (we used Granny Smith- peeled, cored, and thinly/ evenly sliced) ⁣
• 1/2 lemon ⁣
• 1 egg beaten with 2 tsp water ⁣
• vanilla ice cream for serving ⁣
• salted caramel sauce for serving (optional, but homemade caramel sauce is actually so easy to make! And so worth it... All you need is sugar and butter) ⁣
1. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the puff pastry into a 16 by 14 inch rectangle. Carefully roll the pastry around your rolling pin and transfer to a 9 or 10 inch ovenproof cast iron pan, pressing it gently into the bottom and up sides of the pan. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling ⁣
2. Toast your almonds a bit in a pan. In a food processor, combine the almonds, sugar and salt and process until the almonds are finely ground. Add the eggs, vanilla and melted burger and process until mixture comes together. Set aside. ⁣
3. Preheat oven to 425F⁣
4. Slice your apples thinly and evenly, trying to maintain the structure of each half. Pour lemon juice on top to coat. ⁣
5. To assemble the galette, pour almond mixture into the pastry-lined pan and spread evenly. Arrange the apple slices evenly on top of the dough, overlapping them slightly. Fold the excess puff petty back over the edges of the pan to form a rim. Brush the pastry with egg wash. ⁣
6. Bake until the pastry is golden brown and the apple slices are tender (40-45 mins) serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of ice cream and salted caramel on top!!

the holidays are coming up and we all need ideas for easy appetizers (honestly EFF it ...you can just eat this between two ppl like joshuascottp + me) ...make this delicious baked feta with honey and black pepper... it takes 12 min!!!!!! Recipe via whatsgabycookin latest book.
Blot dry 8 oz block of feta from brine. Drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 8 min. Drizzle with honey. Broil in the oven for a few min until golden brown and bubbly. Top with black pepper and fresh thyme. Serve with crostinis or crackers or eat plain😜😜😜
All cookies are NOT created equal.  whatsgabycookin recipe trumps all.
The slam trick is where the magic happens (if you know, you know.)
I’m going to have one happy hubby when he walks in and smells cooooookies!

(my first book)

If you love avocados, but don't know what to do with them other than serve them with tortilla chips, this is the perfect cookbook for you. With its buttery texture and subtle flavor, the avocado pairs well with meat and seafood, makes a great topping for burgers and salads, and adds a wonderful creaminess to dips, sauces, and even desserts. Absolutely Avocados presents delightfully delicious new ways to use avocados in breakfasts, lunches, salads, snacks, and plenty of the ways you haven't even imagined.
