Cornelia Guest’s Simple Pleasures will show you how to incorporate affordable, cruelty-free eating into your daily life and to serve that luscious, wholesome food to friends. Organized by season, each part begins with a terrific meal — a light spring lunch of chilled asparagus soup and quinoa salad; an alfresco summer dinner of veggie carpaccio and stuffed squash blossoms; a fall breakfast buffet of pecan waffles, faux buttermilk pancakes, and raspberry muffins; and a cozy winter’s dinner of shepherd’s pie with a chocolate tart for dessert. Each seasonal section contains recipes for beverages, soups, salads, pastas, side dishes, main courses, and an abundance of desserts that everyone will love. Special sections feature recipes for grains, greens, and beans. In “Notes from My Friends,” which appear throughout the opening chapters, chefs, doctors, Cornelia’s favorite veterinarian, and other health and food experts have contributed tips, advice, and eye-opening information.
