2, 4, 6, 8 Great Meals for Couples or Crowds (USED)

$6.99
More Info
If you're like Rachael Ray, mealtime is a time to hang out and reconnect with family and friends. That means you could be making a late dinner for you and your sweetie one night and making brunch for your entire family the next day. No matter how many people join the party, Rachael firmly believes that cooking should be fun, easy-and done in 30 minutes or less.

Transforming recipes for four into recipes for two or eight can be a tricky guessing game. If you use twice the amount of chicken will you have to cook it twice as long? Is it possible to make a satisfying pot of soup for two without having to eat leftovers for a week? What's the best-and most economical-way to feed a crowd of eight? With Rachael Ray: 2, 4, 6, 8 there's no need to guess, because Rachael has designed right-sized menus for every occasion, with perfect meals for two, four, six, or eight.

For date night you don't want tons of food, so Rachael's Croque Madame sandwich with a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette salad and a killer vodka cocktail strike just the right note. For family dinners, double dates, or those who love leftovers, Rachael whips up classic meals for four like Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza or Grilled Shrimp with Chorizo Skewers. For poker night with your buddies, Rachael knows exactly which ingredients stretch into a 30-minute meal for six, like Uptown Sweet and Spicy Sausage Hoagies. Throwing a dinner party is a pleasure when you're armed with stress-free meals for eight like Italian Chicken Pot Pie and Boozy Berries and Biscuits. With complete menus for family dinners as well as easy and impressive meals for entertaining plus lots of super simple desserts that taste like a million, no matter what the occasion, the perfect meal for your crowd is never more 30 minutes away.

A Curious Harvest: the Practical Art of Cooking Everything

$9.99
More Info

"What do I have to eat?"

Long before supermarkets taught us what we should buy to eat, we simply looked around and ate what looked good. A Curious Harvest marks a return to this kind of thinking. Focusing on ingredients, from the common to the curious, rather than finished dishes Maximus Thaler of The Gleaner's Kitchen offers a choose-your-own primer for preparing tasty, nutritious meals without dogma or shopping lists. Inside each ingredient is beautifully and reverently illustrated by Dayna Safferstein. On each page is information about storing and preparing, when to roast and when to juice, and what goes well with what. What you won't find are complicated recipes requiring expensive trips to the supermarket. The result is nothing short of radical.

Back to the Table (USED)

$14.99
More Info
From Art Smith comes a unique cookbook with more than 150 recipes to strengthen bonds between loved ones.
Throughout history, humans have sat down together at the table to break bread. The simple ritual of the shared meal reunites us with our families and brings balance to our lives. There are many types of families--in using the word "family," Art means to include anyone whom we have sought or chosen to be an important part of our lives. Unfortunately, in today's fast-paced world, the symbolic role of the table has been threatened. In many households, family members all eat separately, according to their own schedules, on the run, or in front of the TV. With this important cookbook, Art Smith wants to bring us back to the table--and back to each other.
Art provides readers with mouth-watering recipes that represent the very best of home cooking, including Roasted Tomato and Cheddar Cornbread, to-die-for Sweet Potato-Pecan Waffles, hearty Seafood Gumbo, Grilled Shrimp on Arugula with Lemon Vinaigrette, and Spiced Pork Loin with Vidalia Onion Sauce, to name just a few. There is also a rich assortment of vegetable main courses--like Art's fabulous Italian Vegetable Casserole. Traditional dishes include the best-ever Buttermilk Fried Chicken and a Roast Turkey with Pan Gravy that's not just for Thanksgiving!
And then there are the celebration cakes, perfect pies, and little sweets. From French Chocolate Almond Pie to Pear and Cranberry Cobbler, from Coconut Cake with Fluffy Icing to Triple-Layer German Chocolate Cake, from Pecan Divinity to Gumdrop Cookies, "Back to the Table" is filled with delicious treats for any occasion.
Art's life's work has involved cooking for families all over the world. These experiences have taught him that families are essentially the same, regardless of international boundaries or cultural differences. We all want the best for each other and want to take care of the ones we love. And what better way is there to care for our loved ones than at the table?
Illustrated throughout with stunning photographs of food and of people sharing their tables and their lives, "Back to the Table" is a book to use daily and to treasure for a lifetime.
