From Publishers Weekly
Flipping through Finamore's book, a reader might get the idea that the food the longtime cookbook editor offers is fine, just fine—but that's about it. Cook one of the dishes, though, and the assessment goes from fine to fantastic. The 200 recipes are for the type of fare that's become familiar to many modern home cooks: American cuisine with Italian and French accents, using fresh ingredients and simple preparations. The foods may be recognizable, but they're rarely tired: who, for instance, could argue with the quick and juicy braise that is Pork Chops with Fennel and Tomato, served over Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes, or Chicken Milanese hidden under a tart arugula salad? The author, who has molded texts written by such cookbook legends as Martha Stewart, Ina Garten and Lee Bailey, has a carefree approach to cooking, urging readers to continually taste what they're making and correct seasonings and cooking times, and most of all, not to stress. With weekday and weekend dinner suggestions as well as ideas for breakfasts, lunches, "nibbles," salads and desserts, this cookbook is destined for frequent use. Photos. (Apr.)

I like the style of writing and the recipes, the few I've tried so far, have turned out very well. I also like the author's attitude. You have permission to enhance your result, if desired, without inciting his scorn. Latitude in cooking is a nice attribute.
I found his web site, asked a question, and got a PROMPT answer.
Nice photography and I like the serving suggestions that relate to other recipes in the book.
This revision is written months later and i still like and use the book quite often. Some of his recipes have spilled over into other recipes I have devised and it's been a helppful read when I'm just looking for "ideas" on what to cook even when I don't follow a recipe.
Finamore lovingly acknowledges the contributions of his family and friends but kicks the recipes up a notch or two to make them his own. Check out the recipes for Roast Chicken and Cod-Puttanesca style. Finamore is funny and ingenious, and he torques classic recipes to a level one would not normally consider. The man knows his way around a kitchen and the book reads like a family recipe collection on fire. Clearly Mr. Finamore loves his family and cherishes the family gatherings he has experienced in the past. He is a blast to read and his food is amazing. My recommendation? BUY IT...NOW...AND USE IT DAILY.
