I followed Chef Chloe's blog before her book came out, and her Avocado Pesto Pasta changed my life! (Not really, but it IS amazing.) You should check out this book just for that recipe alone. The California Chipotle Chop was another winner (and I normally don't care much for salads). Coscarelli also does a wonderful job of making suggestions for allergy substitutions. And the pictures are lovely!
