Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Before cooking a cheese blintz, it is crucial to know that John Black first appeared in Salem in 1985, swathed in bandages, where he was mistaken by Bo Brady for his long-lost brother Roman, an identity he assumed until the real Roman Brady reappeared. And how can anyone enjoy cake doughnuts without knowing the history of Alice Horton, stalwart matriarch of the Horton clan? Until now, cookbooks were filled with meaningless recipes that were unconnected to the lives of our favorite soap opera characters. All that has changed with Cooking with Days of Our Lives. Fans of the series will relate to these fine foodstuffs, and friends and family of fans will finally understand why one hour every weekday must be spent in rapt attention in front of the warmly glowing television screen. Plus, the recipes are easy to make and range from pedestrian dishes such as corn on the cob to haute cuisine show-off pieces such as smoked salmon canapés. Soapalicious!

The soap opera, Days of Our Lives (DOOL to insiders) has been on the air since November 8, 1965. I was in high school then, but I watched it consistently during summer breaks, and I've been watching ever since. Well, perhaps I missed a few episodes here and there -- OK, maybe a few years out of the past 33 years. This book has given me not only the chance to catch up, but also the possibility of duplicating the Romantic and Celebritory meals featured on the show. The characters are real people to me, so I jumped at the chance to purchase this book, which includes "recipes from Salem's most popular restaurants," "food you might enjoy at...a Horton-Brady family picnic," AND "menus for meals served at DOOL's most popular weddings." The recipes, compiled by the restaurant critic for the DALLAS MORNING NEWS, seem pretty do-able. Many of them call for frozen vegetables and bottled barbecue sauce ("your favorite brand"), but there is plenty here to challenge the from-scratch cook as well, such as Grilled Mahi Mahi with Roasted Pineapple Salsa, Lamb Chops Crusted with Vivian's Favorite Herb Blend, and Catfish Po'boy with Brady Pub Tartar Sauce. The book also offers helpful biographies of the characters (not the actors) who inhabit the sophisticated city of Salem, U.S.A. These documents have aided me in catching up on the storylines I've missed. For instance, I had NO IDEA that Vivian Alamain "stole Kate Robert's embryo and had it implanted into her own uterus." The mind boggles! Nor did I realize that Mike Horton "ran up huge debts, which limited his precious time with Margo as he worked to repay them." And critics say that soaps are unrealistic?Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
This is the first truly hilarious cookbook I have ever encountered!
For example here is an excerpt from "'I love you' cookies":
"Decorate the cookies with your message of choice: 'Good luck.' 'Love, Bo.' 'XOXO.'"
Now I want to make cookies for myself and write "Love, Bo" !
The only problem with this cookbook is if you are serious about cooking something, and not just looking for funny pictures of John, there is no organization except for themes like "Weddings" and "Trickery and Treats." So if you want to find pasta, you have to look page by page for a pasta recipe. But if you want to find the pasta Carrie and Austin ate at their wedding, you can find it quite easily, along with a great picture of Carrie slapping Sami.
So far I have only found one recipe I might want to make; all the other recipes are obvious (The "'I love you' cookies" are made with prepackaged cookie dough) or too expensive for my college budget. But who buys this for the recipes? Where else can you find a nice tart recipe next to John's letter to Marlena when he was awaiting execution for killing Tony? (who is alive and well now, but you already knew that)

This book REALLy makes you feel like you're in Salem with recipe's from the show, you're bound to feel like Mrs. Horton! I definately love the little inserts to each recipe like a reminicing to get you in the mood for clam chowder or Alice's donuts. Simply superb! As an editor for Bella Online's Days Site I personally recommend this book for any occasion such as weddings (have yourself a Salem wedding!), for a romantic evening with your honey (candlelight dinners like Marlena and John!), Holiday recipe's from Christmas gatherings at the Horton's! This book can take me back to the DAYS in Salem (especially when the show is off for the weekend!) just by brewing me up some of that Brady Pub clam chowder, YUUUM!
