Soups, Stews and Quickbreads is a lifesaver for the average busy person who needs to get tasty meals on the table on time, add spice and variety, and would like to enjoy doing it. Jan Thomson has turned simplicity, time-saving, and culinary fun into an art all of its own. In this book she offers hundreds of light and hearty 'meals in a bowl' and a nearly endless choice of breads to be served on the side. She has tested and retested each recipe to reduce it to essential steps while preserving flavour, flair, and good healthy eating. In this book you will find dishes for every taste, from elegant bisques to hearty stews, soups both meaty and vegetarian, and quickbreads plain, sweet, or tangy. Recipes are presented in a clear, convenient format that reduces the errors we often make when cooking in a hurry.
