Fresh Flavor Fast

Be sure to mark your calendars for next week; February 23rd is Everday Food Day! The date marks the release of the much-anticipated follow-up to the Everyday Food cookbook and a special episode of the Martha Stewart Show devoted entirely to Everday Food.

Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast features 250 recipes that are delicious, simple to prepare, and filled with flavorful fresh ingredients. Accompanied by beautiful photographs, the recipes focus on quick-cooking, easy-to-assemble dishes that use what’s on hand.
Organized by meal and category—breakfast; appetizers; salads; soups and stews; sandwiches, burgers, and pizzas; pastas; main courses (chicken, beef, lamb, pork, seafood, vegetarian); side dishes; and desserts—there is something here for everyone, for every budget and for every time of the day. Recipes range from Pasta with Peas and Ricotta and Crispy Ginger-Lime Chicken Thighs to Grilled Fish Kebabs and Flourless Chocolate Cake.
In addition to recipes, the book also offers nutritional information, basic tips and techniques, and ways to stretch one meal into another. For example, make chicken for dinner one night, then use the leftovers to create orzo with chicken, corn, and green beans, as well as a chicken salad.
Observation: As I was going through my image files, I noticed I had a copy of the original cover design for the book as it appeared on Amazon last June. You'll notice the title has been changed from Fresh, Fast, Flavorful to Fresh Flavors Fast. The colour of the Everyday Food logo was changed from sky blue to a teal green and the image on the cover was downsized very slightly to show more of the meal on the dish. Every little detail counts!
Note: Be sure to tune in to the Martha Stewart Show on February 23rd for an Everyday Food celebration with the hosts of the Everyday Food series, John Barricelli, Anna Last, Sarah Carey and Lucinda Scala-Quinn.

Hi Andrew, have you tried any recipes yet? I just bought my copy yesterday and HAD to try out a recipe right away. We were blown away with the "Pizza with ricotta and mushrooms" pg. 45. Every one of Martha's recipes that we have tried to date are always bang-on delicious! Very impressed with this cook book. Must get the first one too!

So far I have tried two recipes that are exceptional, firstly the chicken stew with dumplings (so easy and yummy) and the eggs on tomatoes (same - easy and yummy). I don't know either of the recipe names but I recommend these recipes highly. And I even got dumplings right on my very first try. My friend also said the veg lasagne is also very good.
