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...


Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Get Real Meals: Eat Healthy without Going to Extremes
Rachael Ray
1400082536
March 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Part of Ray's appeal to legions of Food TV fans is her loose, nonnitpicky approach to cooking at home. Every meal she presents can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, and she consistently emphasizes simplicity and nonfussiness. So it's no surprise that Ray's contribution to the supposedly waning low-carb cookbook genre does not strictly adhere to the diet. Ray adores carbohydrates—"I cannot and will not eat without them"—and she believes consuming them "in moderation" is a healthy option. This selection of recipes, then, does include pasta dishes, but Ray wisely makes them heavy on the meat and vegetables and low on pasta (a half pound for every four entrées). Her devoted viewers will delight at the prospect of Bucatini with Sausage, Peppers, and Onions; Creamy Polenta and Bolognese Sauce; and Eggplant and Wild...

Rachael Ray Express Lane Meals: What to Keep on Hand, What to Buy Fresh for the Easiest-Ever 30-Minute Meals
Rachael Ray
1400082552
April 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ray has made quite a name for herself on The Food Network, where she hosts four shows, and in a baker's dozen of cookbooks mostly dedicated to easy-to-prepare cuisine. To love this book is to love the author's quirks, like calling extra virgin olive oil "EVOO" and hearty soups "stoups." But her recipes are tasty, simple and often sophisticated enough to turn even doubters into fans. This cookbook, the author's 11th, is dedicated to quick after-work meals and is separated into chapters called "Meals for the Exhausted," "Meals for the Not Too Tired" and "Bring it On! (But Be Gentle)." A meal for the pretty much awake, Smoked Paprika Chicken with Egg Noodles and Buttered Warm Radishes, is the sort of thick, nourishing plate a person craves when the thermometer drops. Pasta in a Creamy Artichoke and Saffron Sauce is...

Book Review's Best of 2001
On any given day, one out of four Americans opts for a quick and cheap meal at a fast-food restaurant, without giving either its speed or its thriftiness a second thought. Fast food is so ubiquitous that it now seems as American, and harmless, as apple pie. But the industry's drive for consolidation, homogenization, and speed has radically transformed America's diet, landscape, economy, and workforce, often in insidiously destructive ways. Eric Schlosser, an award-winning journalist, opens his ambitious and ultimately devastating exposé with an introduction to the iconoclasts and high school dropouts, such as Harlan Sanders and the McDonald brothers, who first applied the principles of a factory assembly line to a commercial kitchen. Quickly, however, he moves behind the counter with the overworked and...


The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
Michael Pollan
1594200823
April 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
[Signature]Reviewed by Pamela KaufmanPollan (The Botany of Desire) examines what he calls "our national eating disorder" (the Atkins craze, the precipitous rise in obesity) in this remarkably clearheaded book. It's a fascinating journey up and down the food chain, one that might change the way you read the label on a frozen dinner, dig into a steak or decide whether to buy organic eggs. You'll certainly never look at a Chicken McNugget the same way again.Pollan approaches his mission not as an activist but as a naturalist: "The way we eat represents our most profound engagement with the natural world." All food, he points out, originates with plants, animals and fungi. "[E]ven the deathless Twinkie is constructed out of... well, precisely what I don't know offhand, but ultimately some sort of formerly living...


The Pressured Cook: Over 75 One-Pot Meals In Minutes, Made In Today's 100% Safe Pressure Cookers
Lorna J. Sass
0688158285
March 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
No one else works wonders with a pressure cooker as does Sass (Cooking Under Pressure). In this collection of expert recipes for one-dish meals, she turns away from her vegetarian-specific recipes to create an appealing overview of the world's cuisines. Not only are today's pressure cookers not the sputtering, sometimes explosive devices of the past, but Sass's recipes are not the usual monochromatic, single-flavored one-dish meals. Beef Stewed in Coconut Milk with Rice Noodles and Green Beans is colorful and spicy; meatballs and tiny pasta bob along in Italian Wedding Soup. Although the ingredients are cooked together in a single pot, they are sometimes separated after cooking for greater variety in texture. For example, the recipe for Short Ribs in Pasta Sauce with Olives and Parmesan Potatoes calls for...

Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: 200 Recipes for Healthy and Hearty One-Pot Meals That Are Ready When You Are
Robin Robertson
1558322566
January 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Vegetarian cooking instructor Robertson (Vegan Planet) turns her attention to the growing number of slow cooker owners. Starting with Slow Cooker Basics, she takes the user through the ins and outs of the appliance from the size of machine suitable for good results to cooking times and 10 quick tips for cooking success. She also devotes a small section to those vegetarian ingredients, such as seitan, that nonvegetarians may not be familiar with. Branching out from the traditional casseroles and stews so popular in the early days of the slow cooker, she tackles appetizers, soups and desserts as well, using the appliance with great effect to produce vegetable stocks as well as flavorful offerings like the Indian-inspired Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chutney and Cashews as well as Asian-influenced Hot and Sour...

American Heart Association One-Dish Meals: Over 200 All-New, All-in-One Recipes
American Heart Association

December 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The subject of this volume-easy, healthful cooking-may not be original, but the recipes within prove to be surprisingly so. Recipes are divided into four chapters: Seafood, Poultry, Meats and Vegetarian. Luckily, the recipes are more exciting than the mundane section monikers. Salmon and Snow Peas with Ginger-Lime Rice, Chicken and Mushroom Cacciatore with Gnocchi, Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs and Butternut Squash Risotto with Pistachios are among the tempting entries. Each recipe is accompanied by nutritional analysis (calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, sugar, and protein), but friendly commentary keeps this volume from feeling too clinical. Food is clearly the focus of the book, but appendices on Eating for a Healthy Heart, Meal Planning, Shopping and Risk Factors for Heart Disease make...

One Pot Meals for People with Diabetes: Keep your suppers simple and your kitchen clean with 151 recipes for soups, stews, casseroles, and more
Ruth Glick

November 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Experienced cookbook authors Glick (The Diabetes Snack) and Baggett (Eat Your Vegetables) have again joined forces to provide some culinary assistance to people with diabetes. The strength of these recipes is that they are varied enough to please almost every palate, as the authors have a good knowledge of herbs and spices and use it creatively here. Instructions are clearly presented for preparing many main dishes, such as soups, salads and hot dishes that feature meat, fish and poultry. Vegetarian choices include Tamale Pie, Broccoli Cheese Omelette and Macaroni Lasagna, and they all fall within the current American Diabetes Association recommendations; while the recipes are not all fat free, the authors have limited the amounts of animal fat. Each recipe lists the nutritional exchanges as well as the calories,...


First Meals (New Expanded Edition)

Book Review
There's a popular game at baby showers in which the new mom-to-be has to taste jarred baby food and guess its contents. Inevitably, the first comment is "Yuk! How do they eat this stuff?" The answer, of course, is that babies don't know there's an alternative--fresh, delicious, wholesome food made at home. In the beautifully and extensively illustrated First Meals, Annabel Karmel explains how simple and satisfying it is to make baby's food yourself--from the earliest mashed banana and steamed carrot purees to Singapore Noodles for 3- to 5-year-olds.

Karmel begins with an extensive section on early nutrition, pointing out that while grownups are often encouraged to follow a high-fiber, low-fat diet, "the under 5s need significantly more fat and concentrated sources of calories and nutrients to fuel their rapid growth...
