Description: Have you ever wanted to bake like Bree? Be a gourmand like Gaby? Prepare simple yet savory fare like Susan? Or make child-friendly cuisine like Lynette? Now, their recipes are at your fingertips! Mouthwatering and easy to prepare, here are over 125 delicious dishes made famous by America's favorite housewives.
For Bree Van De Kamp, dinner is not about convenience. It is about simmering, braising, pureeing, steeping, chopping, and flambeing. Cooked with precision and artfully presented, her meals are more than sustenance; they are perfection. From Basil Puree Soup and Lobster Risotto with Herb Oil, to Blueberry Muffins and Buckwheat Pancakes, Bree's meals are sure to impress.
An earth-mother type with better intentions than kitchen skills, Susan Mayer believes that it's the thought that counts. But having a decent recipe and reading it through before you heat up the pots and pans wouldn't hurt either. Here, Susan has gathered some of her favorite, foolproof (even Susan-proof!) recipes to share, including Roasted Peppers and Fresh Mozzarella Topped with Arugula Salad, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Chocolate-Butterscotch Bars.
Left to her own devices, Gabrielle Solis steers toward simple and healthy fare that she can put together on her own. If the housekeeper puts in the legwork and does most of the preparation, however, Gabrielle has no problem finishing things up when Carlos gets home from work. Gaby's recipes include Guacamole with Warm Chips, Shrimp with Chorizo and Bell Pepper, and Rum-Glazed Roasted Pineapple.
Whether Lynette Scavo has spent the day taking care of the kids or climbing the corporate ladder, when it's time to pack the kids' lunch or put a family dinner on the table, she'll take quick over perfect. Her recipes are time-efficient and kid-friendly, such as French Toast for Breakfast (or Dinner) with Blueberry Syrup, Buttermilk-Soaked Fried Chicken, and Potato Casserole.
Although Edie Britt isn't technically a housewife, the neighborhood flirt does have a few recipes that are sure to be crowd-pleasers. Particularly if that crowd is full of men. Here Edie shares her favorite temptations, including Oysters Poached in Champagne and Cream, Sausage Puttanesca, and Molten Chocolate Cake.
And some of the neighbors have recipes to offer, too! Whether it's Mrs. Huber's Strawberry Smoothies, Mike's Rib Eye Steak, or Felicia's Almond Macaroons, The Desperate Housewives Cookbook is sure to have something to satisfy your cravings.
