Amazon.com Review

Break out of the fast-food burgers and shrink-wrapped sandwiches rut. "Fresh food is more convenient than packaged," Marie Simmons says, and luckily for us she provides more than 200 recipes to prove her point. Add variety to the your dull culinary palette and reawaken your palate with such recipes as Crisp-Fried Soft Shell Crab, Black Bean and Vegetable Burrito, and Roasted Tomato and Fresh Corn Soup. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Life is too short to waste on a bad meal, suggests Simmons, coauthor (with Richard Sax) of Lighter, Quicker, Better. Drawing from her syndicated weekly newspaper column, she sets about to liberate home cooks from the processed tastes of convenience foods. Some 250 recipes showcase fresh ingredients in such uncomplicated dishes as Quick-Chilled Cumin-Scented Fresh Tomato and Corn Soup, Oven-Roasted Halibut with Herb Citrus Vinaigrette and Crystallized Ginger Ice Cream wtih Red Plum Sauce. Cooking times can run to close to an hour (as in Honey-Glazed Orange and Rosemary Chicken or Sesame Brown Rice Pilaf with Garlic and Vegetables), but preparation times are generally 10 to 15 minutes. The pasta recipes feature streamlined, tried and true combinations (e.g., Penne Rigate with Asparagus, Prosciutto and Mushrooms). The chapter devoted to sandwiches proves that a little attention and ingenuity can lift this common luncheon fare to full dinner status: Pan-Grilled Smoked Turkey, Fontina, Bacon and Avocado; Sliced Pork Loin Sandwich with Fennel, Garlic and Roasted Pepper. Side boxes review basic techniques and suggest recipe variations. Straightforward directions, generally short, affordable ingredient lists and suggestions for staples make this a valuable collection for novice and veteran cooks who want to prepare tasty, preservative-free meals. The Good Cook/BOMC and Better Homes & Gardens Cook Book Club main selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Cooking instructor
Reviewed in the United States on September 27, 2019
I bought this book 20 years ago and it taught me more than I could ever ask for about cooking and using fresh whole foods. She is ahead of her times. It is my go to cook book for special occasions and simple dinners with family. The only problem is I would love more of her recipes.
