"Strictly Sundays" by Joe Fitzpatrick

"Strictly Sundays: Making Every Cook a Hero on Sundays" by Joe Fitzpatrick is an exquisite cookbook. As the title implies, the meals in the book are more on the extravagant side for a Sunday meal (perhaps after church?). Fitzpatrick has recipes for appetizers, main dishes, salads, soups, side dishes, and salsas. The meals themselves look very tasty, given the high-definition photos. Many meals have meat and grains in them, so it is good that this book encourages readers to only do these meals once a week. The steps to make the food are quite simple and written in a manner that anyone can understand. Also, readers will get a kick of the miscellaneous writing that Fitzpatrick inserts between recipes at his whim. Additionally, there is an index in the back of the book for quick reference. The cover sports "The Blue Collar Gourmet" under the author's name. However, these recipes are anything but blue collar.
