Book ’n Cook | Fresh Every Day

This week I tested a Summer Sweet Corn Soup recipe from Sara Foster’s Fresh Every Day: More Great Recipes from Foster’s Market. First off, let’s start with the book. Fresh Every Day has eight chapters:

Breakfast for Anytime; Simple Soups; Seasonal Salads and Salad Meals; Seasonal Sides; Quick and Tasty Meat Main Dishes; Fast and Fresh Fish, Pasta, and Risotto Meals; Meals That Cook Themselves; A Little Something Sweet

The recipes are easy to follow and use upscale but accessible ingredients. Throughout the book, there are call-out boxes explaining basic techniques such as roasting garlic or peeling butternut squash. There are also a number of sidebars called “Tricks of My Trade” with helpful hints for making your recipes turn out better and easier.

The Summer Sweet Corn Soup is sweet, light and has a bright, fresh flavor from the addition of the basil. All in all, I recommend this book for it’s tempting recipes, beautiful photography and easy, clean design. And if you have some corn left, this recipe is definitely worth trying.

I made this soup (including the corn broth) on Sunday. While it was work (shucking and de-kerneling the corn), the soup is delicious! Thick like a chowder but not so heavy. We tried it at three different temperatures and liked it best warm (not too hot, not too cold, just right!). I'm glad I have extra corn broth for another batch of soup.

Very nice site- I have a question: I notice that you know what you are doing ( A very professional looking site with great content)are not using adsense-and isn't there something ie: text links or something that pays like Adsense. You are not using any, I believe, Is there a reason? I am stuck trying to make a site that half resembles your flow and idealistic lines; however, I have 4-5 sites, and they all have the same address (Google) and it is getting somewhat confusing- Can you link them all together and log in only once or what would you do? If you would take a look at mine and maybe offer a suggestion or 10 j/k, I would be very appreciative- My URL is: I have the others, but I will not bother you that much- Thank you,
