Any fan of daytime drama will instantly recognize Robin Mattson. She's played homicidal Heather Weber on General Hospital
, scheming Gina Timmons on Santa Barbara
, and evil twin Janet Green on All My Children
. Good as she is at portraying complicated women, Robin Mattson is an even better cook. A professional chef as well as an actor, Mattson has put together more than 150 of her favorite recipes in Soap Opera Café
. Since the camera adds pounds, Mattson has become an expert at creating reduced-fat dishes that are light, fresh, and fabulous to eat: Pepper-Crusted Tuna Steaks, Ziti with Broccoli and Fresh Tomatoes, Hawaiian Flank Steak with Mango Salsa--these dishes and more will tickle your palate and satisfy your hunger.
In addition to her own mouth-watering creations, Mattson includes recipes from her costars and friends. And if you're looking for a little dish from a daytime star, she provides that, too, with plenty of anecdotes about her lifestyle, her career, and her colleagues. Soap Opera Café is fun for fans of daytime drama, but even folks who don't know Erica Kane from Citizen Kane will find plenty to appreciate in its delicious recipes.
