Being Savvy Washington Gives A Review


At night, while relishing the peace and quiet that comes when her children are asleep, Leticia- Tech Savvy Mama assumes her alter ego while blogging and teaching online classes. A Bay Area local, living in DC, Leticia blogs for Tech Savvy Mama and DC Metro Moms. Despite all that she does, Leticia somehow found the time to cook and review ‘Taste This!’ and here is a bit of what she had to say:

Simple tasty food with fresh ingredients is the mantra in our house so I’m always on the lookout for wonderful new cookbooks that will meet my criteria. One new cookbook I adore is Taste This! Author Gina Von Esmarch’s new book is filled with delicious easy to follow recipes whose everyday ingredients are probably pantry staples.

I love that none of the ingredient lists for Gina’s 65 recipes are long. Being able to assemble my ingredients quickly makes it easy for the kids and me to cook up something delectable and fresh even when we are short on time.

We love popping the Parmesan Crisps in the oven to accompany a pot of soup like the Hearty Black Bean Soup made the day before. We keep frozen raw shrimp on hand so we can put together Gina’s Shrimp Scampi as an emergency dinner. Next on our list to try is the Italian Picnic Chicken which comes highly recommended by Being Savvy Newark City Editor, Vanessa.

  • We just made the Greek Chicken Salad for dinner tonight and the whole family loved it! Our 5 year old helped me squeeze the lemons and make the dressing while her 2 1/2 year old brother was asleep.

    During dinner the whole family agreed that it tasted like their favorite salad from this great local Middle Eastern place we go to. They are thrilled that we can now make it ourselves and our daughter wants it again for dinner tomorrow night!

    Thanks for allowing me the chance to review your cookbook and for all the delicious recipes!
