Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally purchased Brook Noel's "The Rush Hour Cook's Weekly Wonders: 19 Weekly Dinner Menus Complete with Grocery Lists for Today's Busy Family" last year.

That book changed my life by giving me the grocery lists and menus to coast through weekly cooking. I was cooking every day like normal people do, and I LIKED it!

Coming back as a more developed cook, I purchased 400 Rush Hour Recipes recently and I have to say, I LOVE IT. The recipes are good, easy to prepare with normal ingredients, which is Brook's promise. Another thing that I find helpful is the kid-friendlyness of the menus and the fact that it is an economical way to feed the family with food made at home. The tips and wisdom are also fun and helpful bonuses that add to the book.

If you are looking for more complex, adult oriented foods, I would recommend Leanne Ely's "Saving Dinner" books. Same concepts, different style. Those books along with Brook's Rush Hour books are really great additions to any every day cooking library.

Overall, I highly recommend this book, especially for domestically challenged or new cooks, with children and/or on a budget. GREAT JOB Brook, THANK YOU!!

Format: Paperback
Brook Noel has written fifteen books and has appeared on headline news shows, so if her name sounds familiar, it should...she's a busy CEO with nary a domestic gene to her name, so if she can easily prepare the dishes she features in 400 RUSH HOUR RECIPES, anyone should be able to. All ingredients are common, easily obtained in any supermarket, and come attached to recipes simple to duplicate. They are appealing dishes even finicky kids will eat - and they're main dishes so don't worry about breads and rice filling up half the book.
