    Simple Ain't Always Pantry Friendly

    Simple Ain¿t Always Pantry Friendly Beginning cooks and on-the-go moms this cookbook is for you. There are nearly 200 recipes that are straightforward and quick to prepare. The G-Notes and G-Gotta-Be-Quick Tips at the bottom of every other page provide helpful tips and timely tricks to preparing these tasty meals. The glossary and top ten cooking tips are extremely beneficial for those wanting to hone their culinary skills. G. Garvin offers sensible twists on everyday dishes like: grilled chicken with prosciutto, asparagus pasta primavera, and crispy oven-baked fish. However, there are some ingredients not found in every pantry or fridge: swordfish, Roquefort cheese, and fruit compote to name a few. G. Garvin gives his nod to the everyday cook. This book has more instruction and more pictures of food then the first. The commentary provided before each chapter reminds you of an old-fashioned soul food Sunday dinner time conversation. So get ready to add a few twists to your average monthly menu. Hook up wit ya boy, G. Garvin. Deltareviewer Reviewing for Real Page Turners

    Delicious but Can I Get a Light Version

    I had this cookbook for a week and have made four recipes. It is absolutely delicious! I am excited to cook when I get home and my husband loves everything so far (and he is picky). However, the only negative feedback I have is that out of the four recipes I think I have consumed about 4 sticks of butter in one week. Can we please get a cooking lite version for those of us who are concerned about our heart health?
