With 250 tempting recipes to take you from breakfast all the way through dessert, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast is the indispensable collection that home cooks yearn for. Organized into familiar categories—including sandwiches and pizzas, appetizers, salads, soups and stews, pastas, main courses, and side dishes—this highly anticipated follow-up to the bestselling Everyday Food: Great Food Fast helps you whip up the perfect dish any time of day.
Here is a book for the way we cook and eat now, with an emphasis on stretching meals (for example, leftovers from a roasted chicken are used to make a quick gumbo and roasted vegetables perform a second act as a vibrant pizza topping), turning to economical ingredients that deliver great results (such as flank steak, served with a piquant parsley-garlic sauce), and making healthier versions of comfort foods without skimping on flavor (like a lower-calorie chicken potpie). A section on enticing vegetarian main dishes as well as a roster of irresistible desserts round out this comprehensive collection. Here’s a taste of what’s inside:
– Breakfast: Jam-Filled French Toast
– Sandwiches and Pizzas: Eggplant and Mozzarella Melt
– Appetizers: Goat Cheese Crostini
– Salads: BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing
– Soups and Stews: Minestrone
– Pastas: Spaghetti Puttanesca
– Main Courses: Meatballs with Rosemary
– Vegetarian: Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto
– Side Dishes: Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
– Desserts: Gingered Blackberry and Plum Shortcakes
Brimming with great time- and budget-saving tips as well as smart kitchen techniques, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast helps you use what you have on hand to make everyone’s favorite foods. With an easy-to-read format, a photograph of each and every dish, and plenty of ideas to keep you inspired, this is the cookbook you will turn to day after day for wonderfully simple, delicious meals.
Fantastic Fast Family Recipes
Great book for family friendly recipes for week days! Nice fresh updates on old favorites as well as newer dishes. The Chilli Mac is the best! The Roasted Chicken Breasts with Carrots and Onions (and prunes) is so surprisingly yummy. (But put the prunes in only for the last 5 minutes). The Sauteed Chicken in Mustard-Cream Sauce makes French cooking accessible for the week day. Recipes (with a fairly skilled cook) take 30-45 minutes– and not too many dishes to clean.
