    Handy and Helpful

    There’s just something about cooler weather that makes one’s thoughts turn to comfort food and fun times shared in the kitchen. While some are experts in the kitchen, others of us are a bit intimidated. We want to re-create the warmth and love we felt in our mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens, but aren’t quite sure how to do that. Author Holly Clegg’s trim&TERRIFIC Kitchen 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence can help. This delightful cookbook offers simple and healthy recipes for the novice or expert cook. It also features basic tools and tips every cook needs to know to manage a working kitchen with confidence. There are more than 150 delicious recipes and most are accompanied by a beautiful color photograph of the end results. In addition each recipes includes diabetic and nutritional information. The author also notes if the recipe freezes well, can be made in a crock pot and you can tell at a glance if the dish is vegetarian. Kitchen 101 is loaded with tips concerning short-cuts and options on preparing various dishes. There is a reference chapter that helps with cooking fundamentals like what to stock in your food pantry and the proper way to set a table. Geared toward making life easier in the kitchen, the author included a chapter on using rotisserie chicken called ‘Rapid Rotisserie Chicken Recipes.’ These recipes are quick and simple such as ‘Chicken Lasagna’ and ‘Chicken Tortilla Soup.’ Other chapters include: Cooking Basics, Start Simple, Ready-Made Menus, Building On Basics, Fit It Fast, Crock Pot Convenience, and Sweet Temptations. This insightful cookbook will fast become a favorite in your collection. What would be more fun that hosting a get-together with friends and learning the recipes together?   FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
