After one of my presentations this week, I took a moment to browse the stacks at the library before leaving. They had a large selection of cookbooks for such a small library. When I noticed High Flavor Low Labor on the shelf. I'm always looking for flavorful, tasty meals that don't take hours to cook. After work, I'm pressed for time and love quick fast meals. Lucky for me High Flavor Low Labor is filled with such recipes. While leafing through the book, I noticed a recipe for Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce. I had some chicken chilling in the fridge and decided that would be that night's meal.
I really recommend High Flavor Low Labor. I spotted a few other recipes I want to make (Four Cheese Baked Gnocci and Red Curry Beef for example). And if you were a fan of Hirsch's Venturesome Vegetarian Cooking, this book has few vegetarian friendly meals. Hirsch had been a vegetarian until recently when he started working at the AP and began editing meat filled meals.
I also made these Hamburger Kababs yesterday. Another great grill recipe!
This was my sixth read for the Foodies Read 2 Challenge.

This looks great. I am now following you. You might like to pop over to Carole's Chatter and have a look at the current edition of Books You Loved - it would be great if you linked something in.ReplyDelete
