We're lucky to have so many convenient ways to produce the wonderful comfort foods we love, with all the flavors we remember from Grandma's kitchen. Got all day? Go low & slow with a slow cooker. Treat your family to slow-simmered flavors...fork-tender pot roasts, tummy-warming soups, cheesy side dishes and more. Short on time or just looking for something new? With an electric pressure cooker, you can cook up all your family's favorite dishes in a fraction of the time...chicken & dumplings, barbecue pulled pork, even down-home green beans that taste like they cooked all day. Anything a slow cooker can do, a pressure cooker can do, and so much more. Make all those other appliances in your kitchen earn their keep too! Your microwave can do more than pop popcorn, like main-dish casseroles, speedy sides and more. Countertop griddles can grill sandwiches, of course, but can also grill a juicy chicken breast to top a hearty salad. Cook chicken fingers and fries to crisp, golden perfection, using a countertop deep fryer. And from your waffle maker, turn out ooey-gooey cheese sandwiches and even warm fresh-baked cookies...who knew? In Modern Kitchen: Old-Fashioned Flavor, you'll find more than 200 recipes from home cooks just like yourself, plus plenty of useful tips for making the most of all those handy kitchen appliances.
