Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Food columnist Vollstedt's latest entry in her Big Book cookbook series (Casseroles, Breakfast, Potluck, Soups & Stews) is invaluable, as it contains an enormous assortment of easy-to-follow recipes that make putting dinner on the table a stress-free and even enjoyable experience. The "casual, lighter, and fun suppers for family" run the gamut from traditional (e.g., Hamburger Stroganoff, Chicken Florentine, Linguine with Clam Sauce, Bread Pudding) to modern (e.g., Salmon Chowder; Lamb and Turkey Loaf with Cranberry-Horseradish Relish; Egg, Ham, and Chile Strata; Smashed Potatoes with Blue Cheese and Chives). Many of the sweets in the book are light and incorporate a variety of popular fruits available year-round (some are heirloom recipes from the author's family). All can be prepared with a minimum of time and effort, and many call for common pantry ingredients. Introductions to each section (and there are 15, including main course salads, pasta, soups, stir-fries and grilling) are brief, informative and friendly, welcoming any level of cook, beginners included.

Too busy to cook? Not with the aid of Big Book Of Easy Suppers: 270 Delicious Recipes For Casual Everyday Dining, packing in almost three hundred recipes which rely on a degree of processed foods paired with appropriate fresh foods for quick production. From entrees and side dishes to dessert, tips include how far ahead the dish can be made, insights on what will make flavors blend better, and advise on what makes the dish bake up better. No color photos, but the very simple directions and recipes don't need 'em

Format: Paperback
This book is Vollstedt's effort to bring back the tradition of lighter suppers in the evening following the heavier dinner earlier in the day. This is how my mother-in-law cooks during holidays and I like this approach because you don't have a heavy feeling late in the day.

The recipes are easy to understand and follow and not intimidating at all, she took the term easy seriously when putting this book together. Easy does not mean boring or monotonous her recipes cover a wide variety of foods including soups, salads, sandwiches meat, poultry, eggs seafood and fish, pasta, vegetables, pizza stir-fries, grilling and desserts. Two categories salads, and pasta grains and legumes have both a chapter for main dishes and one for side dishes.

Although the focus is easy recipes there is a wide variety to choose from and it would be hard to pick up this cookbook and walk away without some ideas for a good and tasty supper.

This is an excellent book full of simple yet delicious recipes. My mom has other cookbooks by the author and really enjoyed them. Then she stumbled across this one and after I flipped through it, I picked up one for myself. There recipes are very basic and easy to follow and call for normal ingredients. Nothing exotic or specialized. Even my meat and potatoes husband enjoys what I have cooked out of this book.

I love this cook book. I use it most often. I have a lot of cook books, but this one has good variety and is easy to make. The ingredients are common, and I can find most right in my kitchen. I love to be able to look in my frig, see what's in there, get this cook book, and make something. I've tried many recipes, and been happy 9 times out of 10. Even my guests enjoy them.

The only gripe on this book would be that there aren't many pictures. I am a person that is very visually oriented and is more likely to make the food if I have a nice picture showing what it looks like done. It has some nice easy recipes, and the cover is very nice. I bought this used and am glad I did because I am hoping to pass it along to my mother in law considering I don't think it inspires me. I would suggest this to someone if they are the type that does't mind few pictures. I guess that I am spoiled.

we all are very busy people, who lead very busy lives and sometimes the drive through is the easiest option. I came across this cookbook, looking for a cheaper way to eat, while still fitting it in to my life. I have to say, this book throws out any excuse that you may have had before, because it makes it so easy to fix dinner quickly and have something that you feel good about eating. On my quest for good health and fast fixes, I also found 50 Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes: 50 Simple and Healthy Recipes for Slow Cooked Meals. That book gives you good options too and there's nothing better than fixing something in the morning, leaving it in the slow cooker, and having it ready when you get home. For those looking for fast suppers that work, I would recommend both of these titles.

Where are the reviews? This is a wonderful "realistic book" that I forwarded to my daughter even though she is a really healthy eater, but doesn't care if she eats or not...she still makes sure she feeds her family properly.. This book is right for todays economy,for people like me who Love food, and comfort food most of all. I don't ever eat or buy processed anything. I (nuts) have over three thousand cookbooks, and when I am hungry this one stays in my mind.Kudos.
