Use to watch his show and thought I'd try this cook book. Wow! Love how simple they are and I love his out look on life and cooking. Just may have to buy this book and the next!

Lots of easy do-able recipes here - I liked the Mediterranean salad and all of his grilled meats.

This is a wonderful book. After watching his TV cooking show, I decided to take out this book. Well worth the effort. I will probably end up buying one.

Tried the Buttermilk Waffles this past weekend - WOW! Not in the 'healthy for you' category for sure (1 cup of melted butter :)) but as a treat - really quite good. Can't wait to try a couple of the other recipes. His 'Quick Pea Soup' from his show is now a staple in our house, so I'm sure we'll find a few more gems.

Michael Smith wins the "most likable Food Network personality" award hands down. Unpretentious, passionate and talented, he depicts cooking as a relaxing, creative pursuit and inspires confidence in his viewers. In his new book, Smith translates his on-air philosophy into simple but delicious and fresh recipes that readers can easily modify as desired.

Containing 100 recipes will full page photos, the book feels like the perfect length - not encyclopedic but both satisfying and wide-ranging. From Oatmeal Crusted French Toast to Honey Mustard Barbecue Ribs to Pan-Seared Scallops to an array of vegetables, grains and side dishes, "Chef Michael Smith's Kitchen" suits every taste. And yes, it even includes Smith's most famous dessert: Iron Chef Strawberry Shortcake!
