Five Star Recipes: The Best of 10 Years

We rated this book:

This was the first cookbook I ever bought so maybe I’m nostalgic. But I’m a fan of cooking light. It’s usually very simple and quick recipes that don’t need a lot of changing to make taste good if anything at all. I tend to usually go full fat milk or sour cream, butter instead of margarine, and real eggs to substitute but otherwise will follow the ingredients and cooking styles.

This is a book that is aptly named. 10 years of the best recipes of cooking light recipes for all occasions. Breakfast, lunches, dinners, sides, desserts, parties, etc. I have dog-eared and written notes on about 1/3 of the pages for all the recipes I’ve tried and made over the years. The gratin potatoes are a thanksgiving staple. The apple coffee cake is a regular for office potlucks. Like with most cooking light recipes, nothing is earth shattering or the best thing ever. But they are reliable and at least a solid template to play with in the future. Maybe it needs a little something extra but these are designed for busy people trying to cook quickly and maintain healthy lifestyles. They’re not complex but they are solid.
