Food Family Style by Leigh Oliver Vickery

Food Family Style by Leigh Oliver Vickery is a cookbook filled with a myriad of foods. From easy to make American dishes to tantalizing ethnic recipes. It contains recipes for every type of cook and has something for everyone. Some of the recipes aren't what I'd make (they use processed foods as an easy way to get started--like a can of cream-of-whatever soup) but there are plenty that appealed to me.
I chose to make the Almond Baked Fish on page 179, and while I forgot to take pictures of this delightful dish, I can tell you that my guys truly enjoyed every bite of it. I'm allowed to share one recipe with you, so here it is:

Almond Baked Fish

2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp + 2 tsp unsalted butter, melted
4 (1/4 lb) flounder or other white fish fillets*
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup cracker crumbs, any kind*
2 tbsp slivered almonds

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine lemon juice, salt, and 2 teaspoons of melted butter in a 9x13 casserole dish. Arrange fish in dish. Spread mayonnaise over fish. Combine cracker crumbs, remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter, and almonds; sprinkle over fish. Bake 10-15 minutes, until done.
*I used cod and panko.

Also included in this over 250 page book are dinner menus, a guide to tell you what a "serving size" of most foods is, and helpful hints and cooking tips. This would be a treasure for a new bride!

Other recipes I can't wait to try are:
Lamb Tandoori
Updated Green Bean Casserole (because that other one is NASTY!)
Zucchini fries
Delicious Glazed Cranberry Bread
Korean Pork Ribs
Apple Crumb Pie with Cinnamon Cream Sauce ( I KNOW, RIGHT???)
Gluten Free Berry Crisp

Just talking about this is making me hungry.
Go. Get this book. It's new from REVELL.
