I write cookbooks but not the kind you normally find. I take cooking back to the basics using simple recipes with common ingredients found in most kitchens. My recipes are perfect for the young adults wanting to learn to cook or us experienced cooks that don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I love to cook, create my own recipes and change the old ones. Cooking is becoming a lost art with more and more people going to the fast food "stores" instead of making meals themselves. I want to bring this art back.
For all those who find preparing meals a chore, here's a little cookbook with a big attitude. Martha Cheves finds "joy while playing in the kitchen." Every time she emerges with a brimming pan or pot, she brings another gem to save time and money while pleasing the palate. Her down-home southern commentary reads like a personal diary and gives a special touch to each delicious dish. In this compact book loaded with fail-safe recipes, Martha starts with a winner: Banana Puddin'. This wonderful dessert vanishes faster than spring snow and always leaves guests cleaning their plates. Artichoke Chicken, Meatloaf Muffins, Rabbit Food Sandwich, and Pina Colada Salad. The turn of every page leads to more fun, imagination and taste that won't quit. Especially helpful are the clever tips at the end of each offering. Who could have thought that sour cream works magic in scrambled eggs or that leftover pickle juice could make cucumbers sparkle? As the final page turns, there's only one request for Martha, "More, please?"
