I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Michael Symon a few years ago and he is one of the nicest, most down to earth people I’ve met. When I had the opportunity to get his latest cookbook and review it, I jumped at the chance. This book is divided into sections by the seasons. Chef Symon’s reasoning behind this is so that we will use the freshest of the produce available in each season and by doing so the flavors of our meals will be enhanced exponentially.

Organized into seasons, these meals are "plentiful" with year round basics and local produce. Beginning with what is in your pantry, the opening season is the spring. Michael entices you out of the winter and into the farmers' markets. Keeping meals "light" and "quick and easy" here are a few that interested our family: Spring Pea "Guacamole" with grilled bread and radish (pg.14): perfect entree for any gathering, especially book clubs Grilled chicken breast with shaved fennel and orange salad (pg.23): zesty mixture of goodness Grilled "Skirt" steak with mushroom gravy (pg.26): okay... this is for the men and for me... the gravy made my mouth water especially "yummy" for those spring rainy evenings Couscous with peas, asparagus, and Parmesan (pg. 55): such a simple side dish or what's for lunch I agree with Michael that there is nothing better than a "sun-warmed tomato... sprinkled with a little sea salt." Summertime is not just fast meals, it is always the best when it comes straight from your garden onto your table: Grilled zucchini rolls with Feta and almonds (pg.61): yum with a zing (definitely one for our book club) Spicy Salami, cantaloupe, and mint salad (pg.86): add the chilled Greek yogurt and summer flavors will zizzle Spinach salad with strawberries, red onions, and Feta (pg.102): this could be my lunch all summer long Warm brown butter vanilla blueberries (pg.109): over vanilla ice cream on a hot summer night... oh yeah! "The skies are bright blue and the leaves are turning every shade of red, orange, and yellow. I'm thinking of football, pumpkin patches, and backyard fires." And so am I.... Grilled cheese with Havarti and apple (pg.116): an adult grilled cheese that makes your mouth water Orecchiette with Brussels sprouts and bacon (pg.125): a fall flavor with pasta... yes please! Kale and apple salad with Maple Cider dressing (pg.150): add a warm buttered baguette and enjoy while watching a storm Winter is all about the comfort food... and of course a good book! What is inspiring me to rethink some "old favorites" is Michael's tantalizing idea to add citrus zest and juices to the winter gloom. Rigatoni with pulled chicken and Feta (pg.171): simple yes, but so inviting Chicken cutlets with Swiss Chard and pomegranate (pg.178): breaded chicken served on top of a Swiss Chard salad, yum! Chicken breasts with bacon and Brussel Sprouts (pg.184): its the flavors cooked to perfection and the Dijon mustard that brings flavor to a new level Butternut squash couscous with mint and almonds (pg.204): this is what's cooking for our fall book club Is anyone hungry? These recipes are quick to prepare. Easy to cook. Tantalizing to your taste buds. The only spoiler with this cook book, is that some of the recipes have ingredients that might not fit your budget or your family. The proof of a good recipe, is in the making... switch it out and Michael's recipe has now become your own! Enjoy browsing, cooking, and discovering tasty newness for your table, MrsK

With this new book, Michael Symon expands on the 5 in 5 idea… 5 fresh ingredients plus 5 minutes of heat equals fabulous food with recipes organized by season and a fifth chapter for holidays. Symon explains that seasonal cooking is enjoying food at its freshest, healthiest, and most affordable. With just five fresh ingredients and a well-stocked pantry, it's possible to provide quick, healthy, affordable meals that will help to gather the family back together around the home table for meals like Grilled Skirt Steak with Mushroom Gravy, Sweet Onion-Smothered Pork Chops, Shrimp with Snow Peas, Garlic & Red-Pepper Flakes and even, Spinach Salad with Ham Steak and Fried Egg. No matter what you are cooking, I’d also recommend that you also buy a copy of Conquer Your Kitchen from Chef Jai Scovers. Another favorite. I haven’t cooked a meal without it since I bought it months ago. In Conquer Your Kitchen, you will discover over 100 surprising kitchen secrets that will save anyone valuable time and money. Including, why everyone should always start every meal with a pot of cold water, how to cook the perfect pasta, rice and/or potatoes every time, and even, how changing one thing in your kitchen could help your entire family live better by eating better! Where Chef Jai Scovers tells you to thaw out your frozen meat really does prevent food borne illness. That one little book has even helped me conquer my fear of using my slow cooker! Buy it, buy it, buy it!
