Two hundred recipes perfect for dinner when you have a little time--but not all day--to cook. For meals that are meant for sharing with friends and family but created with busy cooks in mind, Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home is a new classic that cooks of all levels will depend on. Whether you're making a Sunday supper or hosting a casual get-together, Martha Stewart has put together 52 diverse menus that make the most of each season's flavors--and the various ways we like to cook as the weather changes.

The menus--featuring starters, main courses, side dishes, and desserts--are cleverly designed with a simple preparation schedule that enables you to plan and cook dinner so that it is on the table in about an hour. Using easy-to-find ingredients from the grocery store or farmers' market (and Martha's helpful tips and shortcut techniques), each meal is fresh and inspiring without demanding too much effort. Examples include:  
*  Watercress-Cauliflower Soup, Roasted Pork with Sage and Garlic, Braised Fennel and White Beans, Pears with Candied Walnuts and Gorgonzola  
*  Asparagus-Parmesan Tart, Shrimp in Saffron Broth, Couscous with Golden Raisins, Apricot-Almond Ice Cream Sandwiches
*  Roast Chicken Breasts in Creamy Tarragon Sauce, Warm Lentils with Spinach, Caramelized Endive, Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce  
*  Avocado and Lemon on Toasted Rustic Bread, Seared Tuna in Tomato-Basil Sauce, Green Beans with Lemon Butter, Peaches in Honey Syrup

Martha has put so much thought into Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home that cooking for family and friends will be something you look forward to doing again and again.

If you are looking for an all in one dinner party book this is for you. The unique organization of the book lends to cooking whole meals. Smorgabook found the recipes to be a little bland but loved the salads and desserts. Martha takes control of your kitchen providing seasonal menus with schedules, tips and plating suggestions. The layout is unique but it lacks a narrative loved by the cookbook reader. We suggest this for the cook looking for sophisticated dinner party practice.

This was the express collection, so I had it only a week. Made several menus from it, all quick, all delicious, kids even liked them. I especially liked the abundant use of fruit in the desserts.
