Biscuit maven and entrepreneur Carrie Morey invites you to supper, with a delightful collection of over 120 recipes and tips to bring everyone to the table. With easy to prepare and sure to satisfy meals that highlight each season’s freshest foods, this joyful playbook for dinner is sure to become an essential staple on your cookbook shelf.
Hot Little Suppers isn’t simply a book about cooking for families--it’s a guide for cooking with families. And nobody is better equipped to tackle the subject of incorporating family into the process than Carrie Morey, who grew up cooking with her mother and whose daughters have worked side-by-side with her in her kitchen and business.
Structured by seasons, the 120+ recipes are divided into easy-to-prepare weeknight meals and slightly more involved weekend dishes. From a tangy Thai chicken salad on a summer weeknight to a savory pork ragu with pappardelle for a cozy winter weekend meal, Carrie incorporates beautiful, bright flavors from a range of culinary traditions.
Embedded within each section are tips for involving kids in the adventure, suggestions for serving a crowd, and variations on recipes that can satisfy different dietary restrictions and palates.
Additionally, each chapter includes recipes for sides, drinks, and desserts that make tasty accompaniments, as well as sidebars with “Hot Little Tips” for everything from tailgating like a pro to starting dinner conversations with teens.
The book also includes material about staples to keep on hand for putting suppers together, Carrie’s secrets to organizing your pantry, and beautiful photography throughout that captures techniques, finished dishes, and warm lifestyle shots of Carrie’s family.
