    Great Recipes for Company

    I really like chocolate chip cookies.

    I have a recipe that I've made for 20 years from my mom. It's my mom's version of Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip cookies. I have another recipe that has oat bran in it. Another that you melt the butter for and chill the dough! Another that has oatmeal in it.... Can you tell that I like good chocolate chip cookies? Because I've made so many different cookie recipes over the years, I'm always surprised when I find another recipe that I like for a chocolate chip cookie.

    Last Friday, I made one. It was the Super Chip Cookies in this cookbook. This recipe is a little different because it has more rolled oats than flour and includes some whole wheat flour--though you'd never know!

    I have been trying out a few recipes from this cookbook over the past two months. My favorites so far are this chocolate chip cookie recipe and the recipe in the beginning of the cookbook for scones. Both are hits with my kids.

    This cookbook was written by the authors as a collection of easy to fix recipes for when you're having company. The recipes are written simply and are easy to follow. The breakfast recipes are good standards. I've actually been looking for a good scone recipe for a few years. There's a wide variety of lunch, appetizer, and main dish recipes. The ingredients are mostly basic, but there are a few recipes with unusual ingredients like fennel, radicchio, and arugula. I did make one salad dressing that my family didn't like, but I should have realized that before I made it. I've found that after cooking so many different dishes over the years, I can tell from reading a recipe whether we'll love it or not. The salad dressing was iffy because of the proportions of the ingredients--it was too strong for us. The dessert recipes are surprisingly varied. The Super Chip cookie recipe is one of them.

    I have to admit, though, that I did do a bit of substituting with the super chip recipe. I used semi-sweet (not bitter sweet) chocolate chips. I also substituted extra chocolate chips for the grated chocolate and pecans for the walnuts. That's me and the way I cook.

    If you enjoy entertaining and want flavorful, but pretty easy to make food, this is a great cookbook. There aren't any pictures of what the dishes will look like, but the recipes are simple enough that you don't need pictures to successfully make the dishes. The recipe I'm still looking forward to making sometime soon is the blue cheese stuffed flank steak. I'm saving it for a special dinner with my husband the next time we have a reason to celebrate!

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book from Storey Publishing for review.

    mindy

    I'm very pleased with this book. I loved all the recipes I tried so far. The only thing it's lacking is pictures, but don't let that discourage you. These recipes are easy and delicious.
