You'll find streamlined recipes for family favorites: Chicken Noodle Soup, Chicken Parmesan, Shrimp Scampi, Baked Crab Cakes, Flank Steak Beef Broccoli, Salisbury Steak with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and many more. For the adventurous, there are recipes with exotic names that are actually easy to prepare - Chinese Spaghetti with Pork Sauce, Paillards of Chicken with Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes (a favorite at our house), Lobster and Asparagus Benedict, Duck Breast Salad. I like the balance in the book between the familiar and the unexpected.
With few exceptions, ingredient lists are short, the emphasis is on fresh foods, and ingredients could be found in a typical grocery. I loved the special sections on helpful topics, such as "About Vinegars", "Tips for Great Pizza", and "Steamed Seasonal Vegetables", to name a few.
I buy a lot of cookbooks. Most are good for a quick read and for trying a few recipes that stand out. This one is different. I expect to be using it for many years.
To begin, try the Olive Oil Cornbread and the Sour Cream Cornbread with Cheddar and Corn Kernals - both are outstanding!
