Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Many of the 150 entries in this volume (the fourth in the popular Not Your Mother's series) are as appealing as they are quick and easy, as the subtitle suggests. Paillards of Chicken with Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes, Spaghetti with Zucchini, Basil, and Mint, Golden Risotto with Fresh Corn and Ginger, and Peggy's Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup strike the right balance of simplicity and allure. So do the Mustard-Soy Glazed Salmon with Brown Sugar and Ginger and the Verde Salmon in Parchment with Green Olives. Some recipes, however, have a last-minute feel, such as a Chicken Divan Casserole adapted from a Campbell's Soup label. But for readers who simply want a handful of good recipes for the everyday arsenal-this one's worth the price.
