Recipes: A Collection for the Modern Cook

By Susan Spungen

William Morrow / 2005 / $34.95

For more than a decade, Susan Spungen combined her love of art and cooking to create recipes -- and to style their beautiful look -- for the pages of Martha Stewart Living magazine. Unlike the Food Network stars, she was the cook behind the scenes.

She has simplified her favorite recipes in a gorgeous cookbook that has that bright, clean look she created in the magazine.

Her collection is organized not by course, season or occasion, but by technique: chop, saute, grill, roast, bake, simmer and braise.

Most of her recipes benefit from summer's fresh vegetables, but there are soups and stews for these cold months. Her Little Black Dress Cake is just what you might think: an easy chocolate-cake recipe appropriate for any occasion.
