Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cooking at Home is exactly what it sounds like--great meals to cook for family and friends, or just a quiet night in. The recipes are classic home cooking with an occasional twist or update. Roasted Pumpkin (because roasted makes everything better, right?!), Grilled Turkey Burgers with Kalamata Olives and Herbs (delicious!), Pan-Fried Pork Chops with Sauteed Mushrooms and more fill the pages of this lovely cookbook. Looking for a new twist on an old dish? Try adding sage and garlic for Sage and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. I've used basil many times and loved it, but this was a great new twist for a simple side dish. Mix it up in the bread department with Herbed Breakfast Biscuits or Easy Cheesy Popovers. We love breakfast for dinner around here, so the Irish Boxty (potato pancakes) are a great addition to our repertoire. Overall, this is a great cookbook with delightful recipes that are easy to follow. Gather the family and have a great Dinner at Home tonight! I received a copy of this cookbook from Agate Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
