• Who wrote it: Meagan Micozzi
• Who published it: Hippocrene Books
• Other highlights: Meagan Micozzi's book feels totally accessible and would be a great way for cooks to introduce some southwestern flavors to their kitchen. She plays on a lot of familiar foods — chicken pot pie, meatloaf, pizza, mashed potatoes, muffins — but gives them her own southwestern spin. Classic southwestern dishes like enchiladas and mole get streamlined for the weeknight kitchen. She also has a whole chapter on meals from the grill; I'm counting the days until summer is here.
