That is Justin Wilson's philosophy in Justin Wilson's Easy Cookin', a brand-new collection of more than 165 delicious recipes that are a snap to make. You don't have to look any farther than your supermarket for the makings of a great meal, no matter what you've got a hankering for.
For breakfast try Lost Bread (called that because you make it from bread that's gone stale), which is fried up golden like French toast, or a comforting bowl of Pecan Grits. If you're having a party (and if you're not, why aren't you?), Justin's got plenty of recipes to keep hunger at bay till the main course arrives -- Pickled Eggs, Oyster Pate, and Shrimp Dip, just to name a few. Planning a picnic? Plenty to choose from here -- Hot Cabbage Slaw, Country Egg Salad, Picnic Potato Salad, Potato Salad Without Potatoes (you'll have to read the recipe to find out how Justin does it!). Then there are hearty soups and stews to warm you on raw days -- Oyster Soup, Turtle Stew, Red Bean Soup, Leftover Steak, Potatoes, and Mushroom Stew.
Now let's get to the main event. Lousianians love their fish and shellfish, and Justin doesn't disappoint with Oyster-Eggplant Jambalaya, Crabmeat Etouffee, Crawfish Maque Chou, and Boiled Shrimp in the Shell and a 6-Pack of Beer. More in the mood for turf than surf? Take your pick of Chicken Casserole with Wild Rice, Barbecued Brisket, Hominy and Chili Casserole, Fresh Pork and Sausage Jambalaya a la Party, and Rabbit Gumbo.
Rice and beans are a Louisiana staple, and Justin's got more than a few -- Dilly Cheese Rice, Pepper-Mushroom Rice, and Red Beans and Rice Casserole. And don't forget your vegetables: Try Potato Pound Cakes, Green Onion Grits, Okra and Crawfish and Mushrooms, and Pork Backbone and Turnips.
And just when you're ready to push back from the table, there's dessert. Choose from seven different kinds of cobblers, Strawberry Pie, Walnut Pie, Bread Pudding, and Brown Rice Pudding. Good living is about good eating with friends and family, and Justin Wilson's Easy Cookin' just made it a whole lot easier. I garontee!
