$29.95 Suggested Retail Price

Authors Rick and Deann Bayless present the cook with ninety different and tasty recipes to try. These foods are for "everyday" servings not just special occasions. Chef Rick is a host on one of PBS' fine cooking shows. With this fine cookbook Bayless teaches us some new ways to make this ethnic food that most of us love. Nothing is sacrificed in the effort but preparation time. You can do it in your own kitchen, and you will amaze anyone that you cook for.

What does the author mean when he refers to these dishes as "every day?" How does Green Chile Chicken Tacos sound? In this attractive cookbook you will find soups, salads and many quick meals from the grill. There is included a full range of main dishes, but nothing takes longer than thirty minutes to prepare. (And at least one of them only takes a much shorter time) Learn about "riffs" and "springboards" to add to your own kitchen.
