The Desperate Housewives Cookbook: Juicy Dishes and Saucy BitsAre you ready for Desperate Housewives Season III? I, myself, am counting down the days till September 24th 2006 9:00 EST. In a way, I’m jealous of viewers in the other three US time zones. They get to watch Desperate Housewives at an earlier time (yet at the same moment as me).

To commemorate this new season, ABC is releaseing The Desperate Housewives Cookbook: Juicy Dishes and Saucy Bits. Earlier last month, ABC already released Desperate Housewives – The Complete Second Season. I will definitely buy both the cookbook and the DVDs.

Tune in to ABCs monster hit Desperate Housewives on any given Sunday night, and youll salivate over everything from Brees ber-gourmet repasts to Susans whats-a-spatula simple suppers. They may have wildly different personalities and story lines, but if theres one thing the four heroines have in common, its food. In The Desperate Housewives Cookbook, the shows millions of fans will find recipes for all the foods made famous by the show, as well as many others inspired by each housewife. For example: -Brees elegant, impressive dinners feature dishes like Basil Pure Soup, Braised Duck, and Chicken Cutlets Saltimbocca. -Lynettes time-challenged lifestyle leads to quick, healthy, everyday fare like French Toast for Breakfast (or Dinner) with Blueberry Syrup; Warm Turkey, Muenster, and Coleslaw Wraps; and Potato Casserole. -Susans lack of kitchen skills means that her dishes are of the couldnt-be-simpler (but still mouthwatering) variety, like a Salad of Roasted Peppers, Fresh Mozzarella, and Arugula; Foolproof Macaroni and Cheese; Chocolate Butterscotch Bars; and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. -Gabrielle enjoys the finest things in life — and food is no exception. Her meals are gourmet, and most definitely prepared by a personal chef. Her faves include Shrimp with Chorizo and Red Pepper, Guacamole with Warm Chips, and Pineapple-Peach Smoothies. -Edie uses food for seduction as much as for sustenance. Her sensual favorites include Oysters Poached in Champagne and Cream, Sausage Puttanesca, and Ambrosia.

Synopsis from

I’m so thrilled to see what recipes ABC created to go with the show. I was looking everywhere for a recipe of basil puree featured in the pilot episode of the series when Bree’s family is having dinner. This book will have the answer. I’ll also find out if our puttanesca recipe was right on target. I just hope the cookbook won’t stop people from visiting this website 🙂

The DVDs and cookbook are perfect gifts for that Desperate Housewives fanantic or that Bree-like friend of yours. It’s not too early to start shopping for the holidays! These are literally great stocking stuffers. They’re just the right size to slip in the stocking and give it some bulk 😉 If you are buying these books, please buy them using the links on the right sidebar so that we can get some pennies for running this site. Thanks a million!
