Overview

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.

Read an Excerpt

Almond-Apricot Chicken with Mint Pesto
The addition of goat cheese, apricots, and pesto lends a Mediterranean flavor to chicken. The pesto is made with fresh mint and almonds, rather than the usual basil and pine nuts.

Serves 4
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1⁄2 cup sliced almonds
2 ounces goat cheese
4 dried apricots, cut into 1/4-inch pieces (3 tablespoons)
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mint Pesto (recipe below)
To Prepare the Chicken
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut a slit in one side of each chicken breast to create a pocket about 4 inches long.
2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of the almonds with the goat cheese and apricots. Stuff each breast with one quarter of the mixture. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
3. On a plate, combine the breadcrumbs and the remaining 1/4 cup almonds. Dip each breast into the beaten egg, then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.
4. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until golden, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to the oven; bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve hot with the mint pesto on the side.
Mint Pesto Ingredients
3 cups lightly packed fresh mint
1⁄4 cup sliced almonds
1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt
To Prepare the Mint Pesto
1. In a food processor, combine the mint and almonds; process until finely chopped.
2. With the motor running, gradually pour the olive oil through the feed tube. Season with salt. Keep at room temperature until ready to serve. Store leftover pesto in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks; let it come to room temperature before serving.

    Martha Is The Best!!

    Regardless that I am a Martha Stewart fan, this book is a wonderful collection of comfort food recipes. I am SO glad my neighbor bought it for me.

    A great cookbook

    The Cashew Chicken is excellent. It's incredibly simple, fun to make and since I've discovered this particular recipe, I've probably made it a half-dozen times. I am making 1 or 2 recipes per week and have yet to find one that disappoints.

    The Title Says It All, Great Food Fast.

    Filled with beautiful, enticing photos that accompany each of the tasty, easy to follow recipes this is a great book to add to your cookbook collection or to give as a gift! I love that this book is organized by season; focusing on fresh, easy to find ingredients. Each recipe is simple enough for a beginner to cook but delicious and varied enough to satisfy any appetite. With a selection of Main Courses, Sides and Desserts for each of the four seasons the book contains a great foundation for delectable home cooking and inspiration for daily meals throughout the year.

    "Good" Food Fast

    Great Food Fast is an easy to use cookbook with a wide variety of ingredients and flavors. The beautiful photography is true to life, the finished dishes really look like the photos. I have made several recipes from the book and all have turned out O.K. The preparation is fairly simple and quick as indicated but the flavors leave something to be desired, not a lot of impact. I do like the way it is sectioned by seasons. There are many, many more recipes to try but I may start adding more flavors based on what I've tried so far.

    Cookbook Review

    I purchased this cookbook for someone in grad school. He seemed very pleased about it since he recently likes to cook but has little experience. The book has a nice selection of recipes with easy to use and clear instructions.

    ONE OF MY BEST COOKBOOKS!

    I have many cookbooks and I love to cook. The book is wonderful because the recipes have only a few ingredients (usually), ask for more 'fresh' foods, do not take long to prepare, and taste wonderful. I have not had one bad meal from this book. Sometimes it is hard to decide what recipe to make! Have bought these books as gifts.

    Awesome

    This cookbook is great! The recipes are simple and easy to follow. My girlfriend gave it to me as a Christmas gift in an effort to get me to cook more. I recently prepared her a Valentine's Day dinner from this book (Chicken with Carrots and Onions, Grilled Toast Salad) and she loved every bite! We have gone through and marked the individual recipes that we like and are cooking them off one by one.

    Provides good suggestions for simple, quick, easy, and tasty meals.

    While not exhaustive, the book offers pretty good suggestions to create food that is tasty while also quick and easy to make. A good resource for weeknight cooking.

    Fabulous!

    This is a great cookbook for beginners and experts alike. Directions are easy to understand, ingredients are "normal" and the results are always excellent. It's my new favorite gift for all of my friends and everyone raves about it. A must buy!

    WOW! What's for dinner?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cookbook! I use it weekly and have enjoyed the adventure in cooking. The recipes are easy and tasty, they don't require to many ingredients and are pretty easy to find to make the recipe. Prep time is usually no more than posted and cooking time has been right on for me. My husband is always (with a mouth full) saying WOW this is awesome what's tomarrows dinner. For those who want to cook more healthy dinners in a flash this cookbook is just for you....I can't wait for the next book.

    My favorite cookbook!!

    I wasn't looking for a new cookbook when I picked this up off the shelf, but I had to have it. And I have not been disappointed!! Every recipe that I've tried has been so full of flavor. They have all been pretty easy to make, and the ingredient lists aren't too long or hard to find. I've got several cookbooks, and none of those recipes are this easy or tasty. For the most part, they're pretty healthy recipes, too. I feel like I'm eating in a restaurant when I cook out of this book!

    Fantastic cookbook!!

    I LOVED this cookbook. What was so great about it was that every dish had a picture, so I knew what I was cooking. The recipes are grouped by season, so you'll be grilling in the summer, and using rich flavors in the fall. The recipes are delish!! Some of the recipes were a little too far out, but that's my only complaint. Also, ignore the prep time.

    Practical, simple & delicious with every recipe

    My husband is enjoying this book. He's my taste tester and I make a different recipe everyday. Really easy recipes that are quick and delicious. I always loved the Everyday Food magazine. This is like a bigger magazine with even more recipes, a picture of each one and no advertisements. I'm making a roast right now. I'm looking forward to the next book.
