I was standing in Williams Sonoma, waiting for a purchase to be gift wrapped, with nothing to do but look at the cookbooks on display. I picked this one up because it sounded fresh and easy. OMgosh! I came home and bought it on Amazon. I NEVER buy cookbooks! The photos are wonderful and the recipes give you a pretty gourmet product for minimal effort. My kind of cooking! I'm getting all my busy friends one of these for Christmas!
