No matter how busy you are, at the end of the day you want fresh, flavorful meals that are easy to prepare. And you want lots of choices and variations—recipes that call for your favorite foods and take advantage of excellent (and readily available) ingredients. In the first book from the award-winning magazine Everyday Food, you’ll find all of that: 250 simple recipes for delicious meals that are quick enough to make any day of the week.

Because a change in weather affects how we cook as much as what we cook, the recipes in Everyday Food are arranged by season. For spring, you’ll find speedy preparations for main-course salads, chicken, and poached salmon that minimize time spent at the stove; summer features quick techniques for grilling the very best burgers and kabobs as well as no-cook pasta sauces; for fall, there are braised meats and hearty main-course soups; and winter provides new takes on rich one-dish meals, roasts and stews, and hearty baked pastas. Finally, a chapter on basics explains how to make year-round staples such as foolproof roast chicken, risotto, couscous, and chocolate sauce.

Designed in a contemporary and easy-to-read format, Everyday Food boasts lush, full-color photography and plenty of suggestions for substitutions and variations. With Everyday Food, even the busiest on-the-go cook can look forward to meals that bring freshness, nutrition, and a range of flavors to dinner all week long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful! Martha does it again and provide us with a wonderful yet simple cookbook. Filled with mouth-watering pictures, it didn't take long for me to be seduced and decide to get the book. The recipes are sorted out by seasons: soups, main course, dessert, everything's in there and there's plenty of cooking styles too : mexican, korean, chinese, just to name a few. For those like me who are just starting their collection, there's a handy section in the last pages where you are given easy steps to perfect rice, boiled eggs, couscous. Very useful to know! The elegant simplicity, the flawless presentation and the delicious recipes make this book a must!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Addition To Any Collection This cookbook is a great addition to my collection and one which I actually use fairly regularly. The recipes are very simple and utilize common ingredients. I like the fact that this cookbook emphasizes using fresh " in season" ingredients. I like the fact that the recipes are broken down by the 4 seasons and are accompanied by full color photographs of the prepared dishes. The dishes are presented in a very unintimidating, unpretentious and casual manner. The recipes themselves won't blow you away, but most of them are good which makes them more child friendly. I can see myself turning to this book even a few years down the road.
