I have the other two books in the series (Fresh Food Fast and Fresh Food Fast: Weeknight Meals) and I love them. They are my go to cookbooks and a generally cook at least one meal a week from them. Naturally, I purchased Fresh Food Superfast, thinking that it would be just as good as the others but there's only about 5 recipes that even caught my eye. I actually got nauseated as I flipped through the book.

I'm all for trying new foods and flavor combinations. I have no problem mixing fruit with meat with cheese, and other combinations that a more reserved cook might not be into. But there are just way too many wacky combinations for me. Nothing looked appealing. Everything in the book is either way too boring or way too obscure.

I guess what I am trying to say is this:
1.) The recipes in this book do not go from grocery bag to table faster than those in the other series.
2.) The other books are way better.
Therefore, you should buy the other books!

Cooking Light has come out with another fast and simple book. Some of the recipes will be familiar, but there are many in here that are new including more than 100 4 ingredient, 10 minute recipes. There are colour pictures for about half of the recipes. There are usually 2 to a page and then a colour picture.

There are fix it faster tips that are common sense and experienced cooks will already know what this book claims are clever shortcuts; such as buy already peeled and deveined shrimp to save you the time doing this chore. Quick flips explain you can change some of the recipes, for example adding picante sauce to make TexMex. There are ingredient spotlights and a seasonal produce guide, pictures and explanations of time saving tools and gadgets, a nutritional analysis, and a metric equivalent chart.

These are not recipes that are really out of the ordinary, but they do create good meals, simple enough for beginning cooks. There are many parings; main dish and a side. Some of this family favorites have been; horseradish dill salmon, Grecian steaks and braised chicken with saffron and olives, paired with sugared almond basmati rice.
This book would add to a cookbook collection that needs some good quick nice meals.

I love this cookbook! There are pictures for all of the recipes and some of them have meal sugguestions (i.e. pork schnitzel with slaw or chipotle taco salad with limeade). Plus there is nutritional information for everything, the calorie counts are reasonable and everything is easy and fast to make.

I have several Cooking Light cookbooks and this may be my favorite. As a working mom of 2 small children, it is exhausting to come up with new things to feed the family that are convenient. This book is full of quick recipes and the kids love the ones I've made so far. They really don't take more than 20 minutes to prepare and are lower calorie than many of my other quick recipe cookbooks. I also love this cookbook for the pictures. I often have a difficult time choosing a recipe when I don't know what it looks like. Every recipe has a picture with nutritional information according to the serving size. These are both very helpful when meal planning with the family.

I've been a long time lover of Cooking Light. We just had twins join our family recently, and a friend of mine gave us this cookbook for Christmas. They were newer parents and knew how it can be hard to manage little ones and get dinner on the table sometimes. I've made three recipes from this cookbook so far, and all have been very easy and delicious! I look forward to trying so many more that I have my eye on!

I needed some new recipes that were fast, delicious, and healthy. I've used Cooking Light recipes before from the magazine so I decided to try their cookbook. I've only tried the Sweet and Smokey Salmon since receiving the book last week but it was delicious! This was definitely worth the money to me.

I love this cookbook. Actually, I love all the Cooking Light cookbooks. I love the fact that the recipes are everyday meals which you can serve with confidence even when you are not dieting. They are just good recipes. And all the recipes listed have nutritional information which is so helpful. There are also lots of photographs. This is one of my favorite 'go to' books for everyday healthy eating.

This cookbook is so easy to use. Unlike most that have a fair amount of ingredients and take a bit of time to prepare the first try this one has fewer ingredients and comes out tasting fresh and in less time. I have used it more than any other cookbook.
