I'm loving this book. I've already made Nachos Grandes, Broccoli Slaw, Chipotle Scrambled Eggs, and just this morning, Poached Huevos Rancheros. I have many more recipes on my to try list. I'm looking forward to more delicious simple suppers and even a few breakfasts (which of course can also be served for supper).

Moosewood Restaurant's emphasis is in cooking with wholesome, fresh foods so this book even has recipes that are healthy. It doesn't contain nutritional values but it does give you menu and serving ideas with each recipe. For instance; it suggests serving the Nachos Grandes with the Broccoli Slaw, which I did and they were great together.

You'll find quiet a few recipes inspired by different cuisines (which I love). Cuisines like Asian, Mexican, Indian., Italian and Greek to name a few. I've found most of the recipes require little work as suggested by the title simple suppers and use ingredients easily found at most supermarkets for the most part. The recipes are mostly vegetarian as with the other Moosewood books. There are some fish and egg recipes as you'll probably notice from the chapters included.

Chapters included in this book are: Pasta; Sautes, Curries & More; Beans & Tofu; Egg Dishes; Main Dish Grains; Main Dish Salads; Soups; Sandwiches, Wraps & Rolls; Fish; Side Grains; Side Dishes; Side Salads; Dressings, Condiments & Seasonings; Sauces & Spreads; Desserts; The Well-Stocked Pantry; and finally a Guide to Ingredients, Tools & Techniques.

Some of the recipes serve 2, others 4-6 and I noticed at least one that served 8.
