Taste of Homes newest offering is a compilation of over 1,300 quick and easy recipes gathered into one voluminous four-ring binder. Dishes are divided into 20 chapters, including Finished in 15, Slow Cooking, Parties, and Holiday Highlights. Boasting over 1,200 photos, photo indexes at the beginning of each chapter, and two complete recipe indexes (alphabetical and general recipe by ingredient), the book promises to make locating recipes a breeze. As with the Taste of Home magazine, recipes are submitted by home cooks around the country and typically designed for busy families. Sample recipes from 30 Dinners in 30 include Thai chicken tacos, pierogi, quesadillas, Buffalo sloppy joes, and sesame cilantro shrimp. Fast Fix artichoke ravioli relies on jarred sauce, refrigerated ravioli, and canned vegetables. The Cook Once, Eat Twice chapter focuses on more natural ingredients in the first recipe but relies on prepared items from the grocery for gussying up the leftovers. This is a balanced mix of homemade and semi-homemade recipes for everyday meals. Photos. (Oct.)
