In the Kitchen with Rosie: Oprah's Favorite Recipes

Front Cover
Random House Large Print, 1994 - Cooking - 176 pages
Here are fifty favorite recipes created by Rosie Daley, Oprah's cook -- dishes that Oprah loves because they have helped her to lose weight and to feel good. The recipes are light and low in fat and, at the same time, enormously satisfying and tasty.
Black Bean and Smoked Chicken Soup, Bow Tie Pasta with Blackened Scallops, homemade pizzas, Un-Fried Favorites (catfish, French fries, crabcakes, chicken), a festive Paella, Roasted Duck Breast with Pineapple Chutney, Sweet Potato Pie -- there is no feeling of deprivation eating these marvelous foods, as Oprah testifies in her introduction and in her foreword to each chapter.
Spa-trained Rosie also offers helpful hints about seasonings (Oprah likes things spicy), substitutions, and pretty presentations, which all help to make her food so temptingly delicious. And Oprah, of course, is living proof of Rosie's magic in the kitchen.
