5.0 out of 5 stars Flavorful and fast. I'm very pleased! March 12, 2011
My husband has food sensitivities, so we cook at home every night. I just stumbled across this cookbook at the bookfair at my son's school. It's FANTASTIC.

The good:
* TONS of photos. Every single recipe has at least one photo.
* The recipes give you complete meals. They'll show you how to serve an item, and they give you any needed additional recipes for sides.
* Every recipe has nutrition information.
* Most of the recipes can be easily adapted for allergen-free cooking. My husband is senstive to gluten, corn, dairy, honey, legumes, and some nuts. That's a long list, and I am still able to use most of the recipes in this book with minimal alteration.
* All the recipes are fast to make: very fast. I can complete most of them start to plate in under 30 minutes.
* They taste good. We've been very pleased. On flavor alone, my favorite cookbook is Jamie Oliver's "Food Revolution" book, and these recipes don't compete with those. However, I usually end up cooking out of this one because it's so fast and easy, and the recipes still taste pretty good. They are much better than the Rachael Ray recipes.
* The recipes are healthy but filling, and they still include some comfort-food type dishes.
* The organization is the best I've ever seen in a cookbook. Everything is divided into sections by main course: sandwiches, soups, poulty, etc. Recipes for sides or sauces are on the same page as the main dish, so you don't have to flip pages while cooking. But if you want to get creative and just look for a mustard sauce, there is a "Sauces" section in the index at the back. You do not have to remember that such-n-such mustard sauce went with such-n-such fish dish. You can just look it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and simple for a novice cook. October 6, 2010
By Dee
I love this cookbook! It's the first book I got where I actually read the ingredients and the directions and felt that I could actually do them. Granted, what they say takes 15minutes, is really more than 15mins unless you're Rachael Ray or something. Also, not all recipes are only 5 ingredients. It'll teach you to make a sauce that needs an 'X' amount of ingredients, then, count that whole sauce as 1 ingredient for the main dish. I think it's cheating, but overall, I still love the book and I can fool people into thinking that I actually know how to cook!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying this book July 12, 2010
By D. Frei
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just got this book last week and a good indication of how much I'm enjoying it is the fact that I have planned 4 of my 5 week-night dinners this week using recipes from the book. There is a wide range of recipes and I appreciate that there is both comfort-style food (made healthy) and lighter meals. I found some great recipes that would suit our family in the "meatless mains" section. There are plenty of recipes in the meat section that I want to try and the dessert section has some really delicious looking desserts that seem easy to put together.

I did drop a star as one of the thing that made me want to buy it was the "5 ingredient or less" factor. Most of the recipes ARE 5 ingredients or less, but there are a few that call for a sauce/salsa/dressing that is a separate recipe, so therefore pushing the ingredients up to 10 in order for it to be a complete dish. Of course you can choose to not make these recipes, but I did find that slightly misleading.

Overall a good book that meets what I look for in a book - a good range of healthier recipes that can be made quickly and with few ingredients. I would buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing October 26, 2010
This cookbook is fabulous. Along with the other Fresh Food Fast book, I have make the best dinners in my house and have the best leftovers for lunch of all of my colleagues.

I am a single female. On Sundays I go grocery shopping and pick up any drinks, snacks, salad items I may need for the week, and then ingredients to make 3 of the recipes from this book. I spend about $60 on groceries for the week, given the fact that I have a pretty well stocked pantry with all the basic spices and oils and condiments I need for cooking and I buy meats/chicken in bulk. I'm not really on a diet so I divide the recipes in 3 instead of 4, and put the leftovers in tupperware for lunch or whenever.

I never feel the need to eat out because I never get bored with the Cooking Light cookbooks that I have. This is a great economical way to keep myself fed for an entire week.

I legitimately haven't a single bad thing to say about this book. I love the way the recipes are presented, I love the way it's bound, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! July 12, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've made 4 recipes so far and all 4 were excellent!! Made one of the chicken salads and my Husband requested it again the next week (he is not much of a salad eater either)!! The recipes use few ingredients but taste gourmet and has some excellent ideas I never though of.
