Culinary Confessions of the Pta Divas: Stylish Recipes and Saucy Secrets for the Everyday Gourmet by Anne-Marie Hodges, Pam Brandon

Anne-Marie Hodges and Pam Brandon were two businesswomen with a flair for the good life when they met in the cafeteria of a public school. Their tale of food and friendship began with a grass-roots crusade to uplift the status of dedicated teachers who spent nearly as much time with the children as the moms. With original recipes and joie de vivre, the PTA Divas were born. Culinary Confessions of the PTA Divas is not a compendium but a personal collection of easy and delicious favorites. There's something for every home cook, whether you want a simple chicken noodle soup or a decadent side of lobster mashed potatoes. Although many of the creations are healthful, taste is paramount, with unusual combinations: Wild Child Watermelon; Feta and Mint Salad; Creamy, Dreamy Corn and Poblano Chowder; Japanese Noodle Nosh; and Pucker Up Lemony Crab Relish. With many recipes you'll find "confessions" that offer shortcuts to make you look like a pro. Ultimately, it's all about making life easier and food fresher and more healthful.
