Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If you crave time-saving shortcuts and covet trouble-free slumber, this paperback original could be the answer to your prayers. Massachusetts innkeeper Carol Gordon has concocted 150 recipes that can be made at night to serve the next day. These meals cover the gamut from Arabian Pork Chops and Chicken Quenelles to Shrimp Mousse, Almond Featherbeds, and Amaretto Cake.
Publishers Weekly
Gordon, who operates the Nantucket House of Chatham, an inn on Cape Cod, has gathered an eclectic, unbalanced collection of 150 recipes contributed by inn and bed and breakfast owners from around the world. Organized by course and designed to provide good-tasting meals with minimal preparation, the recipes are what Gordon calls "overnight recipes": they produce meals that can be entirely or partially made in advance and refrigerated overnight. Making meals this way is the ultimate time-saver, she claims. But the time saving actually comes more as a result of the simplicity of the recipes or because of the ready-made ingredients used: frozen diced potatoes for Never-Fail Hash Browns, Raisin Bran cereal in Six-Week Raisin Bran Muffins, and refrigerated crescent rolls for Sausage Puff. The do-ahead capability allows for more time control, essential in the bed and breakfast industry and also worthwhile to the busy home cook. A few recipes may sacrifice taste for ease, but most provide a happy medium of simplicity and good flavor. (Mar.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Gordon and her husband run an inn on Cape Cod called the Nantucket House of Chatham, and here she presents the make-ahead recipes she relies on there. Included with these dishes are stories about her "innkeeping adventure" and recipes and anecdotes from B&B owners and other innkeepers around the country. But, generally, the recipes are simple and not especially memorable, and while some can be made entirely ahead, others require last-minute preparation. Donna Leahy's Recipe for a Country Inn offers a more sophisticated and entertaining approach to a similar topic. Gordon's book is suitable for area and larger collections.

    This will become a regular in your cookbook collection. This is one you will not just sit on your shelf. I have used this over and over again. Baked Blueberry French Toast is my daughter-in-laws favorite. The Cinnamon Crunch Coffee Cake is great when I get together with my quilting group. I could go on and on. Recipes are easy and tasty. Enjoy!!!!!
