No matter how busy you are, at the end of the day you want fresh, flavorful meals that are easy to prepare. And you want lots of choices and variations--recipes that call for your favorite foods and take advantage of excellent (and readily available) ingredients. In the first book from the award-winning magazine Everyday Food , you'll find all of that: 250 simple recipes for delicious meals that are quick enough to make any day of the week.

Because a change in weather affects how we cook as much as what we cook, the recipes in Everyday Food are arranged by season. For spring, you'll find speedy preparations for main-course salads, chicken, and poached salmon that minimize time spent at the stove; summer features quick techniques for grilling the very best burgers and kabobs as well as no-cook pasta sauces; for fall, there are braised meats and hearty main-course soups; and winter provides new takes on rich one-dish meals, roasts and stews, and hearty baked pastas. Finally, a chapter on basics explains how to make year-round staples such as foolproof roast chicken, risotto, couscous, and chocolate sauce.

Designed in a contemporary and easy-to-read format, Everyday Food boasts lush, full-color photography and plenty of suggestions for substitutions and variations. With Everyday Food , even the busiest on-the-go cook can look forward to meals that bring freshness, nutrition, and a range of flavors to dinner all week long.

From this cookbook you can choose recipes that can make an excellent meal in a jiffy. It's fast, it's easy and it's good. The ingredients are also easily obtained.

One of the best fast meal type cookbooks out there. The recipes are interesting, but easy to put together -- the ingredients are readily available, and they WORK (unlike Donna Hay books!). It's sad that the magazine no longer exists -- it was a very clever and convenient concept (I wish I owned all the issues), but this at least captures some of those recipes. Hope they come out with more -- the recipes produced since Sarah Carey became editor have been particularly good.

This cookbook is fantastic if you are looking for dishes that a bit sophisticated yet simple. Most recipes have a limited number of ingredients, most should be in any well stocked pantry - dead easy and a winner! Try the turkey meat balls w/ past - fantastic!
