A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Always looking for quick, interesting, and tasty meals for my family, I was excited to try Michael Symon’s new book. Already a fan of his show as well as a frequent patron of farmer’s markets, this book brought those together for me and proved to be a success. Upon first perusal, the pictures grabbed my attention, closely followed by the easy yet satisfying recipes. An added bonus- the easy ability to exchange ingredients should one not be a favorite, with the result just as appetizing. Included is a section on holiday cooking, perfect for the upcoming holiday meals. For my family, 5 in 5 For Every Season definitely was an inspiring find to cook often and enjoy further!
