I LOVE America's Test Kitchen -- the cookbooks, the Cook's Illustrated magazine, and both the cooking shows on PBS. They try all the recipes a gazillion times so each recipe is foolproof. Recently, I purchased their new Cooking for Two cookbooks for friends who will soon be empty-nesters, and purchased myself a copy as we'll be in the same boat next year.
Now, looks like America's Test Kitchen is coming out with a new book of recipes -- menus! What an easy way to plan a dinner party...just pick a theme and they've done all the work of putting together a team of dishes that will make you a rock star!
