Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Elaborating on the meal-in-a-pot theme, Dojny and Barnard (AMA Family Health Cookbook) offer quick recipes that can be cooked in a skillet, which they redefine to include the saute pan. The authors, who write a monthly column for Bon Appetit magazine, begin by advising how to choose the right cookery. Lemon Asparagus Chicken Stir Fry, for instance, can be cooked in minutes in a heavy skillet, as can Cumin-Crusted Pork Paillards with Mojo Pan Sauce; Tuscan sausages and Cannellini Beans on Arugula is best sauteed in a deep, covered pan. Caruso's full-color photos beautifully display such dishes as Thai Fish Bouillabaisse, which is made with coconut milk and red curry paste, or Pan-Seared and Braised Veal Chops Provencal. Dojny and Barnard also cover plenty of timesaving meatless dishes, such as Tunisian Eggplant and Chickpea Ragout; Meatless Mexican Monte Cristo sandwiches; and several varieties of the ultimate skillet meal, the omelet. (July) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Dojny and Barnard, who have collaborated on more than half a dozen cookbooks, also write Bon Appetit's "30-Minute Main Courses" column. Although this book is not a spin-off of the column, it's in the same vein, with 100 easy recipes that are quick enough for a weeknight meal but often perfect for entertaining as well. Take, for example, Peppered Filets Mignons with Brandy and Blue Cheese, for example, or Fennel-Crusted Pork Chops and Charred Lemons. The headnotes include menu suggestions, and the authors also provide lists of staples to have on hand in "The Flash Pantry." For most collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    one of the best cookbooks i have! The recipes are easy to follow

    one of the best cookbooks i have! The recipes are easy to follow and make and use only one skillet to cook in,
    so there is little to wash up after.  Always a big bonus.  Great for beginning cooks who want to eat well.
