For xmas a dear friend gave me a cookbook composed of all of the recipe from 2002's issues of Living by Martha Stewert. No matter what you feel about her personally, I think her stuff is great! I ususally read her magazine for just the food part and find I can't throw them away because of the recipes. Now this handy compilation lets me have just the recipes. Like all her stuff, the photos are simple, elegant and delicious! I just try making her pot roast and it came out great.
