My Comments:
I saw this one on Edelweiss and since twenty minutes is the usual amount of time I have to fix dinner, I grabbed it.  Unfortunately, they did not give me a Kindle edition I could keep; only a time-limited galley.  Therefore I will not be trying any of the recipes and posting about them.

The book itself looks like  a great gift for anyone setting up housekeeping for the first time, or even for an experienced cook.  It features photos of the recipes, illustrated, step-by-step instructions for some of the dishes and foods that go beyond the old standards.  Readers will learn how to make sushi, fajitas, curries and salsa.  The proper way to cook a steak is shown, along with how to test for doneness.  If you ever wanted to make pickles, this gives a refrigerator recipe.  There are grilling recipies and a collection of ways to make quiche. The desserts look tasty too.
