Once again, we present in one convenient book another year's worth of outstanding recipes-more than five hundred in all-from the pages of Martha Stewart Living magazine. In this latest edition of the Martha Stewart Living Annual Recipes series, you'll find everything you need to prepare memorable meals for your family and entertain your friends all year long. Because the recipes are arranged by month, you'll be able to easily find your favorite seasonal ingredients and dishes. Among this year's most popular entertaining menus are a relaxed buffet brunch of savory bread pudding, coffee-cake muffins, and fruit-and-yogurt parfaits; a light French lunch of warm goat-cheese toasts and nicoise salad; and an early summer meal featuring prosciutto crostini with fresh figs, grilled lemon chicken, and nectarine-blueberry pie. And because no annual recipe collection would be complete without a Thanksgiving feast, you'll find one here, too. This year's version consists of familiar courses updated with Italian flavors. An herb-roasted turkey is stuffed with chestnuts and Italian sausage and served alongside a butternut squash-potato puree topped with crushed amaretti cookies. Other side dishes include spinach with sauteed garlic and a fresh mushroom and celery salad enlivened with slivers of Parmesan cheese. A rich pumpkin-and-ricotta crostata and chocolate-almond Marsala cookies follow. No matter what page you turn to in Martha Stewart Living Annual Recipes 2005, you're sure to find more than one good reason to get into the kitchen and start cooking.Stewart, Martha is the author of 'Martha Stewart Living Annual Recipes 2005', published 2004 under ISBN 9780848728229 and ISBN 084872822X.
