Marthaville, LA (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Since the late ‘60s, author Suzanne S. Jones has been involved with the development and literary end of food and recipes. Inspired by this experience and her passion to impart her knowledge and the tastes of various recipes, she has woven Readable, Doable and Delicious: Requested Recipes and Stories from the Past to the Present. This book covers the years of her writing recipes, columns and commentary. It enfolds various recipes that would tickle everyone’s palate from appetizers to casseroles, soups to main dishes, breads, and salads to desserts.
Readable, Doable and Delicious: Requested Recipes and Stories from the Past to the Present is a friendly book rather than just a kitchen tool. The research, testing and development of workable, accurate and easily understandable recipes carries out the sage advice from the author’s long time mentor, the late Associated Press Food Editor, Cecily Brownstone, who said, “Never be just a typewriter cook”. Readers will find that the majority of recipes here do not follow any food fads or trends, being more indicative of taste than trend. Dietary restrictions are rarely a factor. They will find sections on appetizers, soups, salads, breads, casseroles (side dishes), main courses and desserts, complete with introductions and sometimes special helps.
Healthy, delicious, easy to prepare, and very practical, the recipes in Readable, Doable and Delicious: Requested Recipes and Stories from the Past to the Present are interesting treats for food enthusiasts who would like to create a unique difference in their kitchen, and eventually in their every meal.

About the Author
Suzanne S. Jones have been involved with the development and literary end of food and recipes since the late ‘60s. She was recruited by the late Carl G. Sontheimer, Father of the Cuisinart Food Processor, to direct the test kitchen, eventually becoming the editor of his magazine, “The Pleasures of Cooking.” Jones worked with many well-known chefs and food writers, including the late Julia Childs, James Beard and Roy Andres De Groot. In 1980, she wrote “The Low-Cholesterol Food Processor Cook book (Doubleday).”
After retiring from Cuisinarts in 1986, Jones moved to Florida with her husband. She was approached by the Tribune-owned Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel newspaper to write special articles on cooking, which led to the weekly column, “You Asked For It”. Sixteen years later after cajoling those recipes from chefs/owners and researching, testing and developing workable, accurate and understandable recipes, she again retired. This time she moved to Louisiana with her cat, Molly, to be near her family and to enjoy having time to share some of those recipes with the readers.
