5 GREAT NEW Cookbooks for Men

A cookbook is an excellent cheat sheet when you don't know what to eat. Here are some perfect recipe books for those of us with limited culinary faculties: 

5 GREAT NEW Cookbooks for Men

COOKING WITH THREE INGREDIENTS By Andrew Schloss (HarperCollinsPublishers, 1996). A gour-met chef reveals the shortcuts to restau-rant-quality food without the restaurant-sized calories. We tried "Cider-Braised Turkey Breast." All you need are breast of turkey, apple cider and garlic. Okay, and some salt.

LEAN AND LOVIN' IT Exceptionally Delicious Recipes for Low-Fat Living and Permanent Weight Loss, by Don Mauer (Chapters Publishing, Ltd., 1996). Mauer, a food columnist for Chicago's Daily Herald, lost more than 100 pounds in 1990 and has kept it off eating this way. "I'm a real beef and dessert kind of guy," he says. "You don't have to give up these things if you cook them right." Check out the "Southwestern Beef and Black Bean No-Tomato Chili" and "Chocolate Upside-Down Cake."

COOKING WITH BEER By Lucy Saunders (Time Life Books, 1996). Where to turn when all you have in the fridge is a couple of cans of Bud and some hamburger.

HELP! MY APARTMENT HAS A KITCHEN By Kevin and Nancy Mills (Chapters Publishing, Ltd., 1996). For those who need help identifying a saucepan. Extremely simple recipes, plus helpful "Mom Tips" and "Mom Warnings."

THE CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN COOKBOOK By Larry Flax & Rick Rosenfield (Macmillan, Inc., 1996). Simple instruc-tions with photos give you step-by-step les-sons on how to make the California Pizza Kitchen's gourmet pies. Includes low-fat and meatless pizza recipes.
