Actor Freddie Prinze Jr. shares 75 of his favorite recipes for weeknight meals.

Most people know Freddie Prinze Jr. from movies (She's All That, Scooby Doo, Star Wars Rebels) and as one half of beloved Hollywood power couple with Sarah Michelle Gellar. But to family, friends, and co-stars he's always been a terrific father and skilled home cook who prepares delicious meals for his family every night.

Freddie grew up in New Mexico cooking with his mother and eating dishes with a ton of flavor and spice from his Puerto Rican heritage. His eggs come New Mexico–style, served with from-scratch biscuits and green-chile gravy. His tacos are the real deal: soft tortillas, homemade salsa, filled with steak layered with quick-pickled cucumbers, or spicy fish dressed with watermelon and Thai chiles. Now in this family-focused cookbook, Freddie teaches fans to cook his mainstays, the recipes that he makes on even the busiest weeknights, as well as more luxurious date night meals.

With personal family photos from Freddie and Sarah's beautiful LA home and Freddie's hilarious stories about the life of an actor, husband, and father in Hollywood, Back to the Kitchen shares more than just recipes. It’s an inside look at a beloved movie and TV personality who has acted, cooked, and eaten his way around the world.

I sat down and read the book last night. It is full of interesting and easy recipes with fun commentaries. I have never used New Mexican green chili but I am going to get some and try it out. The green sauce recipe sounds delicious and I would definitely add it to omelets and tacos, but it would be interesting to add a dollop to egg salad or use as a topping on a chopped salad. This really is a good addition to my cookbook library and will be fore yours. I'd also recommend that you buy a copy of "Conquer Your Kitchen," a cookbook reference guide, from Chef Jai Scovers, which has made cooking so much easy for my son and my daughter-in-law, they are just starting out and she already loves it. I also love the companion cookbook, "Simple, Healthy and Delicious" from Chef Jai Scovers. OMG, the Pound Cake French Toast is so good. My husband actually made it with fresh blueberries and powdered sugar. I have been in love every since. This one cookbook is a must have for any kitchen, especially yours.

Wonderful book! Not only does the food look scrumptious, but what really perfects the book are the personal touches and family photographs. I cannot wait to try each and every recipe. I can only hope that there are more books by Freddie Prinze Jr. in the future. If so, you better believe I will be on the pre-order list!
