This is all main dish, veggie, etc. recipes. It's HEAVY on convenience foods (frozen veggies, a can of beef gravy on top of potatoes in a crock pot?, cream of .... soups). There is typically too much of everything in these convenience foods to combine them to the extent they have here, and have any semblence of balance left in a meal.
One tip for anyone who may be interested: Some of these recipes are very adaptable to doing without crusts if you so desire. I make "crustless quiche," etc. all the time, and this is one way to remove some of the "heft" from these recipes. Line the bottom of the plate with the protein (ham, etc.), and you have a good crust substitute. Post a comment here if you want more info, and I'll be happy to get back to you.)
If you're OK with the ingredients, then you may be OK with this book, but I don't find it anywhere near the caliber of the other Gooseberry books I've purchased. Most of their books have wonderful, creative tips in between the recipes. This one does not.
I hope this helps!
