Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats: A Year of Deliciously Different Dinners (A 30-Minute Meal Cookbook)
Rachael Ray
1400082544
November 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Food Network darling Ray wants home cooks to become more "instinctual," and this assortment of quick meals is expansive enough to encourage even novices to wing it. The author hopes readers cook their way through the entire book; to that end, she organizes the recipes not by course or main ingredient (though there are indexes), but by number. The organization takes some getting used to. Helpful but occasionally jarring "tidbits" pop up everywhere, and many "recipes" make more than one dish, so cooking just one requires a fair amount of reading. For example, number 16 encompasses "Oregon-Style Pork Chops with Pinot Noir and Cranberries; Oregon Hash with Wild Mushrooms, Greens, Beets, Hazelnuts, and Blue Cheese; [and] Charred Whole-Grain Bread with Butter and Chives." Readers making just the hash must read around the instructions...


Dinner at Miss Lady's : Memories and Recipes from a Southern Childhood

1565122275


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Until she graduated from Radcliffe in the 1950s, Landon spent every summer in tiny Greensboro, Ga., at the luxuriously appointed home of her paternal grandparentsAknown as "Miss Lady" and "Judge," despite the former's married state and the latter's third-grade education. In keeping with petite Miss Lady's ultra-refined sensibilities, life in her many-gabled Victorian house was elegant and leisurely. Breakfast was served to her in bed, followed by dinner at 1:00 and supper at 7:00 in the rose-papered dining room, all painstakingly prepared and served by Henretta, the African-American cook. "Food," claims Landon, "...was not just something that assuaged our hunger while we concentrated on something else, but was a reality that lived in every moment it was prepared and eaten." That reality must have lasted quite a...

Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering
David Gregory
1578569052
July 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In Dinner With a Perfect Stranger, David Gregory relates the story of two men sharing a meal. The point of interest is knowing that one man believes he is Jesus. What will the other man think by the time the evening is through? The conversation begins, as one could imagine, scratching the dry hard surface of skepticism and doubt, but gently and persistently goes deeper and deeper, spiraling in from that starting point until they are eventually talking about the true stuff of life; the career drifting off-track, the marriage experiencing its own kind of strain, the life being lived where the philosophical questions of youth have given way to simply coping with modern day-to-day living. Gregory's book is a refreshing reminder of what evangelical Christianity is at its very best -- a faith enlivened by the personal...

Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant
Anne Tyler
0449911594
Aug 1996
Paperback
·
 
From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Caren Town
Anne Tyler is known for her ability to explore and make real the ways in which "unexceptional" people create families out of what might be seen as a hopeless muddle of failed or failing relationships. The Tull family - frazzled and sometimes abusive mother Pearl, missing father Beck, jealous and manipulative son Cody, troubled but finally contented daughter Jenny, and loving, placid baby Ezra - resembles families most of us know. We first witness Pearl's memories as she wanders back through her life while lying on her deathbed; next, Cody takes over, and by the end of the book we have experienced each family member's perspective. Out of their often differing stories a picture emerges of Pearl: of how her travelling salesman husband left her with three children to care for, how she...

From Publishers Weekly
PW noted the "bouncy, rhyming verse" and "innovative cast of characters" in this culinary counting tale. Ages 3-8. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-- As Mr. Panda graciously greets guests arriving at his restaurant, he also invites readers to enjoy a rollicking counting rhyme. A peanut-selling elephant shows up first, then two carsick lions, three pigs (carrying their building materials and pursued by a slavering wolf), and on through assorted critters until ten chickens bring seating to capacity. When a tiny mouse asks to come in, Mr. Panda hastily makes room because, "No matter how many,/ No matter how few,/ There will always be room/ At the Palace for you!" Unforced, funny quatrains are reinforced with...

Book Review
Written by two working moms with four kids between them, Desperation Dinners! fulfills its promise to supply you with more than 250 recipes that can be made from start to finish in 20 minutes. With the help of Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross, you can serve up appealing and nutritious home-cooked meals on nights when that might seem impossible. There are meaty dishes (Fiery Chinese Beef) and meatless ones (Very Vegetarian Chili), as well as Ravioli with Roasted Red Pepper Cream for pasta-lovers, and even Magic Brownies for those with a sweet tooth.

The authors' technique, which calls for using convenience foods (canned, frozen, boxed, bagged, or jarred), is based on the idea that the time saved justifies extra cost and sacrificed quality. Their Desperation Pantry includes staples such as canned beans and broth,...

From Publishers Weekly
Moulton, a Food Network and Gourmet chef, wants to help home cooks produce elegant meals without excessive fuss. For each dish in this assemblage, she indicates hands-on time and total cooking time, with most calculated to require under 45 minutes (though cooks who are less efficient at prepping than Moulton may dispute some of the estimates; Mexican Chicken Salad, for instance, indicates 15 minutes of hands-on time, but with all the chopping and washing, some amateurs will soon reach the 25 minutes allotted for the whole process). Besides chapters on soup, pasta, meat and so on, there are several revolving around time-saving tips: "Shop and Serve" has recipes like the fast but tasty Tortellini Pepperoni Spinach Soup, and dishes in "Just Open the Pantry" use items from a kitchen stocked with Moulton's long list...
