Christy developed the 100+ fast, easy, nutritious recipes for Where's My Spatula? while she coped with preparing satisfying meals for her family during a major restoration and renovation of "Swan's Nest", her recently purchased historic home in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Though her days were full of meetings with contractors and hands-on restoration projects with her husband Randy, and her temporary kitchen was the size of a postage stamp, Christy still fervently believed that dinner is the time to slow down and gather with family or friends – no matter what else is happening in your life. The result is a cookbook that makes it possible to get dinner on the table in 20, 30, or 40 minutes. With recipes like Fifteen-Minute Pork Chops with Cabernet Reduction, Beef and Vegetable Skewers with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce, Oven-Baked Molasses Barbecued Chicken Breasts, Penne Pomodoro with Roasted Bell Pepper Sauce, and Sautéed Pears with Vanilla-Brown Sugar Sauce, driving through the fast-food lane isn't even an option!
If there is one cookbook you need in your kitchen, it's The Family Table. Written by cooking instructor and television celebrity chef Christy Rost, this comprehensive cookbook gives you delicious, nutritious, and easy-to-make recipes for the entire year. Divided into four practical sections—Everyday Meals, Weekends, Entertaining at Home, and Holidays—there are recipes for every occasion. Recipes range from all-American favorites, like Old Chicago Minestrone and Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins to international delights, like Beef Sukiyaki and Tomato Galette.
Whether you are a family of five, a couple, or a single person, The Family Table inspires all of us to savor our meals together. "Whether we dine as a family or set a few extra places for others to join us, gathering around the table provides us the opportunity to celebrate the most important things in life—love, family, good health, and good friends." Christy Rost believes that the act of sharing meals is the glue that holds families and friends together.
