Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Food columnist Vollstedt's latest entry in her Big Book cookbook series (Casseroles, Breakfast, Potluck, Soups & Stews) is invaluable, as it contains an enormous assortment of easy-to-follow recipes that make putting dinner on the table a stress-free and even enjoyable experience. The "casual, lighter, and fun suppers for family" run the gamut from traditional (e.g., Hamburger Stroganoff, Chicken Florentine, Linguine with Clam Sauce, Bread Pudding) to modern (e.g., Salmon Chowder; Lamb and Turkey Loaf with Cranberry-Horseradish Relish; Egg, Ham, and Chile Strata; Smashed Potatoes with Blue Cheese and Chives). Many of the sweets in the book are light and incorporate a variety of popular fruits available year-round (some are heirloom recipes from the author's family). All can be prepared with a minimum of time and effort, and many call for common pantry ingredients. Introductions to each section (and there are 15, including main course salads, pasta, soups, stir-fries and grilling) are brief, informative and friendly, welcoming any level of cook, beginners included.

The recipes are pretty good, but I was shocked to see that there are no photos besides the one on the cover! Aren't cookbooks supposed to have photos of what the food looks like when it's prepared? Other than that, 3.5/5

As the mother of 3 small kids, I'm always looking for quick and easy but healthy dinner recipes. I borrowed this book from the library and liked it so much that I bought it for myself. For $5, it's a steal!

I reviewed this last night and thought it was just a sample; when I turned on my nook this morning, the additional pages had been added. Sorry for the bad review BN!!
