Guide Review - The Desperate Housewives Cookbook: Juicy Dishes and Saucy Bits

From Bree's Braised Duck to Susan's Foolproof Macaroni and Cheese, there's something for everyone, regardless of skill level or lifestyle. Each section plays host to each main character's favorite foods.

Bree's section offers the type of foods one would expect from the woman who loves to entertain.

Gaby's section offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes to match her spicy personality, along with healthier choices for those watching their weight.

Have a busy, hectic lifestyle? Why not try something from Lynette's fast and healthy collection?!

Susan might be a bad cook, but her collection of mostly vegetarian dishes are tailor-made for those who are a little challenged in the cooking department.

No matter which housewife collection you chose, from breakfast to dessert, you'll be cooking like you've lived on Wisteria Lane for years!
