Do you find yourself stressed at the very thought of preparing your next holiday meal? Are thoughts of endless hours and late nights spent preparing numerous dishes causing you to actually dread the upcoming holidays rather than look forward to them with festive anticipation? I can tell you that you are certainly not alone. For years, many of us home cooks have suffered through slaving in the kitchen over a meal for our family and friends, only to be stuck in the kitchen while everyone else got to enjoy each other’s company. It is true, that for many of us cooking is a form of love and we wouldn’t trade the opportunity to bestow the gift of our time and food upon those close to us. However, most would agree that it would be nice if the process could be a little simpler, a little less stressful, and little less all-consuming.
The relief you are looking for can be found within the pages of this book. The recipes contained here all emphasize the flavors and decadence of the season, but each one also stresses the value of your time. With the focus on limited prep work and cooking methods that require little of your attention, you will discover that there is actually joy to the holidays that extends past your kitchen door. If you plan your holiday meal from this book, you will be able to spend time enjoying the depth of joy during the holiday season, rather than just one aspect of it.
