Hot Little Suppers: Simple Recipes to Feed Family and Friends

Carrie Morey. Harper Horizon, $35 (288p) ISBN 978-0-7852-4161-4
“Making an event out of cooking and eating food makes life more fun,” writes Morey (Callie’s Biscuits & Southern Traditions), founder of Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, in this rich collection of kitchen creations and tips. To “figure out which recipe is perfect for any occasion,” entrees are helpfully tagged with icons that indicate which is a crowd pleaser, a one-pot meal, a quick fix, vegetarian, family fave, or a “weeknight or weekend” option. The dishes—pot stickers, chicken tikka masala, cacio e pepe, pork al pastor—draw on various world cuisines. In her tasty riff on shrimp toast, she uses grilled Royal Red shrimp—instead of the traditional dim sum dish’s deep-fried topping—laid on slices of multigrain bread. Preceded by a helpful “grocery list” of ingredients she always has on hand (including fish sauce and White Lily flour), dishes are organized by season, and paired with menu options for desserts, sides, starters, and drinks. And to round out her chapter on biscuits, she provides recipe ideas for leftovers, such as a toasted maple biscuit casserole and biscuit crackers (whizzed-up biscuit crumbs even form the crust for a cheesecake pie). This promises to deliver dinner solutions year-round. Agent: Amy Hughes, DCL. (Oct.)
