Overview

Chefs are becoming celebrities, and there are more cooking shows and cookbooks available than ever before. So why do so many people still declare, "I can't cook!"? Complex recipes, hard-to-find ingredients, and glossy food photography can intimidate and frustrate beginner cooks. Cinda Chavich feels your pain and gives you over 250 no-fail recipes you will love to make. Divided into three sections -- Sustenance, Decadence, and Observance -- recipes range from after-work supper ideas such as Easy Thai Chicken Salad, and Barbecue Pork Tenderloin to party menus such as Fondue Party, the PC Vegetarian Feast, and Baby Shower Buffet. The Valentine's Day Dinner with Seared Scallops in Champagne Sauce and Lamb Chops with Mustard Rub lets you pull out all the stops for that special someone. A perfect gift for the young-and-not-so-culinary-inclined, The Girl Can't Cook is the cookbook for fabulous kitchen goddesses in training everywhere.
