With 250 tempting recipes to take you from breakfast all the way through dessert, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast
is the indispensable collection that home cooks yearn for. Organized into familiar categories — including sandwiches and pizzas, appetizers, salads, soups and stews, pastas, main courses, and side dishes — this highly anticipated follow-up to the bestselling Everyday Food: Great Food Fast
helps you whip up the perfect dish any time of day.
Here is a book for the way we cook and eat now, with an emphasis on stretching meals (for example, leftovers from a roasted chicken are used to make a quick gumbo and roasted vegetables perform a second act as a vibrant pizza topping), turning to economical ingredients that deliver great results (such as flank steak, served with a piquant parsley-garlic sauce), and making healthier versions of comfort foods without skimping on flavor (like a lower-calorie chicken potpie). A section on enticing vegetarian main dishes as well as a roster of irresistible desserts round out this comprehensive collection.
Here's a taste of what's inside:
- Breakfast: Jam-Filled French Toast
- Sandwiches and Pizzas: Eggplant and Mozzarella Melt
- Appetizers: Goat Cheese Crostini
- Salads: BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing
- Soups and Stews: Minestrone
- Pastas: Spaghetti Puttanesca
- Main Courses: Meatballs with Rosemary
- Vegetarian: Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto
- Side Dishes: Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
- Desserts: Gingered Blackberry and Plum Shortcakes
