Solid cookbook with good recipes and practical tips for home cooks who generally don't have all day to work on the perfect plate. I appreciate that Cora encourages readers to be comfortable throwing things together and inventing their own variations (definitely something I need help with!). I do wish there were more recipes -- maybe there would've been room if the photos (which are gorgeous) were smaller or less plentiful. This is still some place I'll turn to for ideas when our fridge and pantry have just odds and ends. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618729909, Hardcover)

As the star of the smash sensation Iron Chef America, Cat Cora is used to improvising exciting dishes on a moment's notice. In this book she shows you how to do it too, whether you want a spur-of-the-moment supper or a spectacular dinner that doesn't require spending your whole Saturday in the kitchen.

Cooking from the Hip is divided into four convenient sections, each with its own appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, sides, and desserts. You can turn to whichever chapter best suits your needs and mood, knowing that every dish will be simple and special.

Fast: Spicy Chicken and Peach Stir-Fry, Creamy Fettuccine with Sausage, Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

Easy: Watermelon Gazpacho, Thai Chicken Salad, White Cheddar Corn Bread

Fun: Sunday Cheesesteak Sandwiches, Crispy "Fried" Chicken, Lemonade Cookies

Phenomenal: Mango Margaritas, Pomegranate-Glade Cornish Hens with Wild Rice, Italian Cream Cake

Cooking from the Hip is all about flexibility. You'll be able to use what you've got on hand without being afraid to substitute. You'll learn how to cut down on cooking steps, combine just a few ingredients in inventive ways, pull in leftovers, and wow your family and friends.
