I got this book as an early reviewer. I love cookbooks but they need to be usable not just full of pretty pictures and complicated directions. This book, while full of beautiful pictures, has easy to follow recipes. They are clear and not finicky or overly complicated. Her timings for meal planning are really good for a good at home cook; when she suggests 30 minutes the recipe is about that. The pictures entice you and then once made even taste good! The chocolate cake recipe is my new favorite as is the ginger cookies. Overall, a well written, well balanced cookbook. The author also has some sections with cooking tips if you are not too comfortable in the kitchen. Great! I'd give it as a gift. Also, this sits on the recipe shelf in the kitchen. ( )

springtime sautéed asparagus & peas, p.161, yummy, the honey likely to encourage even the most picky child to eat their veggies.
white russian milk shakes, p.291, drinkable.
spinach & gruyère quiche, p.204, not bad, drain the spinach.
broccoli tots, p.173, not the best use of the ingredients, but would serve the purpose of hiding the broccoli from finicky eaters.
cinnamon swirl bread, p.221; quite good. ( )

I received a free copy of this book from the LTER give-away. This book is very beautifully illustrated (some of the recipes even have some step-by-step instructions of the more complicated steps). Some of the recipes seem to be "above my paygrade" as a simple cook, but there are enough beautiful recipes in this lovely, big book to entice me to give them a try. ( )

This was the first free book I requested/won from LibraryThing & I was so excited to receive it! The book is beautiful, great pictures & has a great mix of recipes! I love finding tasty recipes for busy weeknights with common ingredients already found in the kitchen.....and the Garlic & Herb Roasted Baby Potato recipe fit this criteria perfectly! The flavor was wonderful & this recipe will definitely become part of the rotation! Can't wait to try many other recipes in this book! Love the Heads Up, Pro Tips, Sourcing Savvy & Make Ahead Options throughout! ( )
