At Home in the Kitchen : The Art of Preparing the Foods You

We ordered 5 extra to send to friends & family who like to cook. The book was easy to read, but the website support is just the best! I like to cook and watch cooking shows on cable, but I don't understand alot of the terms. The best part of the book for me was the sections on how to set-up a kitchen (the items that are needed) and explaining what the cooking terms really meant!!! The recipes are easy to understand and follow. Watch out, I'm on my way to better meals!

No more than ten steps per recipe

With At Home In The Kitchen, home chef and cooking instructor Jorj Morgan shows even the most novice cook how to successfully plan and prepare complex, exotic dishes, and to think of cooking as a form of personal growth and giving. Included are timely instructions on kitchen organization, 230 fun and delicious recipes set out in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format (no more than ten steps per recipe); as well as a wealth of tips, tricks & techniques. From Spinach, Apple and Pecan Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette; Rum Soaked Sweet Potatoes; and Pan Chicken with White Wine "Gravy"; to Black Bean and Toasted Corn Salsa; Pumpkin Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting; and Sauteed Green Beans with Caramelized Pearl Onions, At Home In The Kitchen is an elegant, practical, and much appreciated addition to any culinary reference shelf!

It's a keeper!!

This cookbook has a wealth of tips, hints and most of all well tested recipes. The recipe choices have great variety and because of all the tips I think I'm more inclined to try something new. Wonderful all around cookbook!!

Top notch instruction for the uninitiated

Jorj Morgan's "At Home in the Kitchen" is a refreshing change from the typical "how to" cook or entertain books on the market today. If you're like me and you know how to boil water to make pasta, grill chicken on your Foreman grill, or spoon out pre-made cookie dough from a tube, but don't have too many other cooking skills, THIS IS YOUR BOOK! You learn to take time out of your work week, skip the fastfoord, and make great, tasty meals for you and your friends. She takes time to explain the basics in a non-uppity way, but the recipes aren't ordinary by any stretch. Two personal favorites of mine are the Roasted Salmon in the Grass with Cucumber Sauce and My Favorite Cheescake. If you read her forward closely, you see a personal commentary on the literal importance of "breaking bread" with carries through the book and adds to her written charm!

I finally feel "At Home In The Kitchen"

Of every room in my home, the kitchen is the place I avoid like the plague. It's embarrassing when your 15 and 13 year old children are better cooks than you at forty-something. Honestly, I really CAN burn water. With At Home in the Kitchen I feel as though I can actually step in to this room and step out with a beautifully prepared and delicious meal. What set's this cookbook apart from any other is the website. For the first time you can see the finished product up close. In addition, Jorj Morgan had the insight to have her recipes tested by a diverse group of individuals ranging from homemakers to business and community leaders. Their comments and suggestions are on the website that accompanies the book making for an interactive culinary experience second to none. Look out Emeril! Jorj Morgan has given us a "Bam" of a book.
