Do not buy this book if you are Sandra Lee aficionado or if you prefer quick and easy recipes that offer convenience, not taste.
I have a number of Diane Morgan's books and I could not wait for Christmas to try new dishes in this book. I love her recipes because they always come out and because following her directions I manage to turn simple ingredients into something wonderful and amazing. For example: roasted carrots and parsnips with fresh dill, p. 102, roast loin of pork stuffed with apricots and dried plums,p. 87. ( Inadvertently I cut the hole for stuffing pork loin with dry fruit a bit too wide, so instead of alternating apricots and plums I used apricot and plum next to each other, followed by plum and apricot and so on, when sliced the pork looked like a work of art, and tasted divine. The only problem- all was gone in one meal, next time I will buy more pork.)
