Sometimes a cookbook can be lots more than recipes, and Every Day is Saturday: Recipes + Strategies for Easy Cooking, Every Day of the Week (Easy Cookbooks, Weeknight Cookbook, Easy Dinner Recipes) by Sarah Copeland is one of them. The book is filled not only with mouthwatering recipes, but also stories and vignettes that are fun to read. It's always fun to read a book where the personality of the author comes through; it helps readers know that author and want to prepare the dishes. It also helps when there are beautiful photographs, and this cookbook includes plenty of them.
Copeland includes menus that are suitable for a nice family dinner or for entertaining; they aren't too fussy, and are doable for everyone. The recipes are mostly easy and concise - cooks at every level, from beginning to advanced, will be able to turn out picture-perfect dishes. Some of her accompaniments are unexpected, like a Cuban version of black beans and fried plantains to accompany a taco feast - Yum! There is a fabulous recipe for Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri that is requested often, as well as the author's "go to" Magic Pork Shoulder which is a cut above and is delicious. The recipes have international leanings: Italian, Mexican, Cuban, and American, and there is something in this excellent cookbook that will appeal to almost everyone. The side dishes are nice, the desserts are mouthwatering, and the main dishes and salads are incredible.
The cookbook includes about 100 recipes, which isn't a huge amount, but since they are appealing - some unique and others traditional with innovative twists - there are plenty of recipes to keep cooks busy and happy for a very long time. This cookbook is definitely worth adding to every cookbook collection and will be used often.
