a recipe to share

One of the best things about my work schedule is that I only work three 12 hr days a week. That leaves me with a lot of free time to pursue other interests... such as cooking :) A year ago, Ben & I stumbled upon the most delightful cookbook at Lowe's while we were shopping for paint colors. The book is from Cuisine at Home and we have yet to find a bad recipe! Since our first book purchase, our collection has seriously expanded. I went to their website and bought 6 more! They are a magazine style so they don't take up much room, and each recipe includes a picture of the dish and great step-by-step instructions. The main dishes even have a suggestion for a side dish, complete with pic and instructions on the same page. I highly recommend these cookbooks to anyone with a desire to discover new recipes with impressive presentation that are delicious and easy to make. We recently discovered THE BEST halibut recipe ever so I just had to share.
