Get Cooking: Simple Recipes to Get You Started in the Kitchen
4 Installments—Entirely free
This book is part of DailyLit Tastes, a cookbook excerpt program. Recipes from cookbooks we think are worth reading—and tasting—will be sent to you periodically so you can sit back and wait to be surprised!
This selection of four recipes from Get Cooking has been made available for free to DailyLit readers by the publisher .
Do you want to eat really well—not just once in a while, but all the time—but you don’t know where to begin?
Are you tired of pizza—as much as you like it—and broke from buying takeout?
Do you love good food—the straightforward, homemade kind—but feel challenged to set up a kitchen, shop for decent equipment and groceries, and tap into a few basic skills that can put a simple roast chicken or vegetarian entrée on your dinner table?
If you answer “yes” to these questions, then Get Cooking is for you. Get Cooking is the first book from bestselling cookbook author Mollie Katzen designed specifically for beginners, whether you are just starting to cook for yourself or trying to kick the restaurant habit. Unlike most cookbooks, the goal of Get Cooking is to get you in the kitchen, no matter what your experience level might be.
Get Cooking gives you clear, step-by-step instructions for making everything from classic Chicken Noodle Soup to Green Beens Amandine. With this book, anyone—you included—can make delicious, fresh food, with a lot less expense (and a lot more satisfaction) than ordering in.
You may know Mollie Katzen as the author of such famous cookbooks as Moosewood Cookbook or The Enchanted Broccoli Forest; Get Cooking has all of the accessibility and personal warmth of those beloved books, but it is Mollie’s first cookbook for vegetarians and omnivores alike. The recipes made available for DailyLit readers give a taste of the delicious dishes found in the full book—from Steak Fajitas and Salmon Burgers to Bacon-Wrapped Fruit Bites and Buttermilk Banana Bread.
Here at last is the cookbook that will make a cook out of everyone.

Canned chicken noodle soup is nice in its way, but it can’t hold a candle to homemade. This easy version is all about keeping it real: big chunks of chicken, wide noodles, plenty of carrots and celery.

I've been a fan of Mollie Katzen for years. I think "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest" was the first book by her that I purchased back in the early '80s. "Get Cooking" is a nice collection of easy-to-follow recipes. I tried the portabello mushroom dish and loved it.
