This book has recipes that were from families or obtained from travels around the world by 8 authors. I must admit that I love to cook and am always on the search for new ones. And, the ingredients must be readily available and more importantly the east of preparation is a must. I also prefere those recipes that have few ingredients.
In this book, recipes are indeed varied and include some of the following: Berry Salsa, Micah's Hearty Homemade Chili, Super Quick Pantry Chili, Mexican Omelet, Rutabaga Soup. Pad Thai Noodles with Chicken and Shrimp, Apple Cobbler, Cheesecake Filled Strawberries, Tart Tatin anda Salty Dog.
For each recipe the ingredients are listed first and then the instructions. One thing I appreciated is that the temperature for baking is listed in both F and C. An added bonus for some readers, for sure.
The ones I selected to make at some point are: Rutabaga Soup, Mexican Omelet, Apple Cobbler and also Cheesecake Filled Strawberries. The Pad Thai Noodles with Chicken and Shrimp sounds delicious but am wondering how it would taste if the shrimp were frozen instead of fresh...? That is one disadvantage to living in Vermont...fresh seafood is difficult to obtain...So, that recipe is a maybe for me.
After each recipe is presented, there is a short excerpt from a book. That will give the reader a 'taste' of what the author has written.
All in all, a recipe for everyone, I believer. Looking forward to making some of these soon.
