The Splendid Table's How to Cook Supper
I'm really resistant to new cookbooks because I'm out of bookshelf space, but after my husband brought How to Eat Supper home from the library, I decided I had to get it. I've been cooking out of it for about a month now.
It's a cookbook that I enjoyed reading cover to cover, and I have a ton of the recipes tagged to try. There's a lot of variation in there also, with a lot of Asian and Indian influenced recipes included. I've made a tomato tart, one of the pasta recipes, a delicious white bean salad, a cucumber and butter lettuce salad with a retro green goddess dressing that I couldn't get enough of, some shrimp... and tonight, braised leeks that were terrific, plus some little chocolate cakes that involved little more than melting chocolate and stirring it together with a few other ingredients.
The recipes are pretty well-written (as a Fine Cooking devotee, I have high standards) and everything so far has been good and very fast and easy.
