For All Your Entrees, Sides, Desserts, and Other Basic Everyday Recipes
Recipes for the entrées, sides, and desserts that everyone loves. No fancy ingredients, no exotic flavors, just good-to-eat home-cooked food. Everything you need can be found at your local grocery store and farmer’s market. Easy to follow recipes are great for quick weekday meals or fun weekend events. This book was created for those who want to relax and enjoy their favorite meals without a lot of difficult preparation.
Almost every family has a few treasured recipes, beloved as much for the memories they evoke of family get-togethers or a special family member, as it is for their wonderful flavors. Ours, like most families, have a few such recipes, handed down to the next generation, taught to us as children, or squirreled away on index cards or scraps of paper in worn and aged cookbooks. There are likely many more recipes that were not included in this collection for one reason or another. Perhaps they will emerge in another volume in the near future.
