Most people know Freddie Prinze Jr. from movies ( She's All That, Scooby Doo, Star Wars Rebels ) and as one half of beloved Hollywood power couple with Sarah Michelle Gellar. But to family, friends, and co-stars he's always been a terrific father and skilled home cook who prepares delicious meals for his family every night.

Freddie grew up in New Mexico cooking with his mother and eating dishes with a ton of flavor and spice from his Puerto Rican heritage. His eggs come New Mexico style, served with from-scratch biscuits and green-chile gravy. His tacos are the real deal: soft tortillas, homemade salsa, filled with steak layered with quick-pickled cucumbers, or spicy fish dressed with watermelon and thai chiles. Now in this family-focused cookbook, Freddie teaches fans to cook his mainstays, the recipes that hemakes on even the busiest weeknights, as well as more luxurious date night meals.

With personal family photos from Freddie and Sarah's beautiful LA home and Freddie's hilarious stories about the life of an actor, husband, and father in Hollywood, Back to the Kitchen shares more than just recipes. It's an inside look at a beloved movie and TV personality who has acted, cooked, and eaten his way around the world.

If you don't like to cook with New Mexico chilies, then this is not the cookbook for you. There are a few recipes that don't contain the chilies, but not many. The stories and family photos are very fun, though.

I did not expect much from this "celebrity" chef and was pleasantly surprised. This featured lots of amazing recipes and some great stories to boot. Good and conversational, I'll check it out again to use once holds have been filled.
