    Basic Yet Inspiring

    This cookbook is inspired by the menu of Ruby Tuesday restaurants, featuring more than 100 casual dining recipes for brunch, lunch, dinner and desserts, as well as beverages. Filled with beautiful full-color photographs, the book helps the reader prepare restaurant quality meals at home, including Ruby Tuesday's signature burgers and famous Mac and Cheese. Tips on how to successfully host gatherings of friends and family and suggestions for pairing wine with food are included, as well as a section of food prepareation basics such as making whipping cream, roasting peppers, making chicken stock, etc.

    Chapters include drinks, appetizers and side dishes, brunch, salads and soups, pasta, seafood; beef, pork, and poultry; and desserts. I made the White Bean Chicken Chili that turned out well so it will show up on my menu again. I also made a version of the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon that I really liked (no one else in my family will eat brussels sprouts so I enjoyed them all by myself!).

    There are several other recipes I want to try such as Fettuccine with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Italian Sausage, Avocado Turkey Burger, Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Mushroom Gravy, and an Italian Cream Cake that actually seems simple to make. The recipes aren't complicated and use ingredients that can be found in local supermarkets.

    This is a collection of recipes I think cooks of any level of expertise will enjoy and it would be a great Christmas gift for any "foodie" friends and family members.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

    Tasty!

    Jeff Morgan presents a tasty collection of recipes that, while not necessarily for the novice, are easily made in the home for casual dining. Whenever I review a recipe book, I always take the time to make a few of the recipes, some of which I find appetizing and always one I think I won't like. For Simply Fresh, I started with the beverages and made Sangria. It was simple to make, and, although there was nothing original here from other recipes I have tried, it was tasty. For an appetizer, I tried the Thai Phoon shrimp with the Chipolte sauce from page 194. Again, it was simple to make, and tasty. For the main course I was drawn to the fried buttermilk chicken recipe (153). It was true comfort food. I paired this with the recipe I thought I would like the least, the roasted brussel sprouts with bacon (35) and I was surprised that even my children liked it (the sprouts really absorb the bacon flavors). I finished my review with the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies (170), a bit hit. Morgan, in the end, comes through with his promise- the recipes here are simple, made fresh and very tasty. The book has a nice index and sections that touch on the topics of wines and compliments but does not include nutrition information. While not an essential purchase, this would make a nice compliment to any cookbook collection and a nice gift for under $25. Digital copy courtesy of Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing.
