I received this cookbook as a gift. This is the first cookbook that I've found in which the recipes are simple and quick enough to make after work without being a burden and the food is always delicious. I've probably made 30 of the dishes now and they have all been hits with my family. This is my favorite cookbook out of the 100 or so I have. I use it everyday.

This cookbook tells you exactly what to make for dinner in 20 minutes. The menu includes an easy main dish and one or two exceptionally easy side dishes. It requires almost no thought.

I pick something to make over breakfast, make a small shopping list, then take 20 minutes to make dinner when I get home from work.

With twice the effort I could make slightly better food, but this book makes everything super-duper easy. It's healthier and easier than getting takeout.

I LOVE this cookbook. The meals are tasty, yet simple and (of course) superfast! There's also plenty of opportunity to play around with the ingredients and make the dishes your own. Every recipe I've tried has been great so far. I HIGHLY recommend this one.

Format: Hardcover
this was one of the 1st cookbooks i bought, and i used it a lot then.

cons:
like many cooking light cookbooks, some recipes use prepackaged, precooked and/or processed foods. i found once i knew what i was doing a bit better i could substitute fresh ingredients where necessary. (examples: frozen cooked chicken, frozen mashed potatoes, commercial pesto, frozen beef stew, etc.) i originally purchased this & began cooking out of necessity, so it was o.k., but now i don't like it as much for this reason.

there is a section of side dishes in the back of the book, but it doesn't contain the great majority which are dispersed along side most of the entrees. while convenient at the time, it makes finding them again a pain.

the serving sizes are small!

pros:
the recipes are good, easy, and guide you through with a chronological supper plan, including serving suggestions.

there's even a good french toast recipe, despite the "supper" title, rationalized by breakfast for supper. =D

i am usually cooking for 2, and while this cookbook is not entirely geared for 2, it does have a nice little section for just that, and the other recipes are not overwhelmingly large.

With a newborn and a toddler running around, I'm constantly strapped for time. This book has been a solution for me. Each recipe I've tried has been easy to make, very tasty, and healthy too. I am going to begin purchasing this book for every baby shower I go to. It is a must for anyone who likes to cook, loves to eat, but no longer has time to do either...

I LOVE this cookbook!!!!! It was a Christmas gift and ever since we've been having great dinners nearly every night. I don't even want to go out anymore. This book contains easy to make meals in under 30 minutes (with the exception of the chapter on crockpot cooking). What I love about this one is that it plans the entire menu for you, and gives you steps to follow to prepare 2-3 recipes at once. Meals are usually a protein and a side, and sometimes include salads, breads, veggies, etc. And the best part? They're very light.

I've made probably 30-40% of the menus in this cookbook now, cooking them nearly every night. The only down side is the more expensive ingredients (sometimes) and quite frankly the time it takes to find and purchase all of the ingredients in the grocery store. I spend a lot more time in the produce aisle these days.

Two favorite chapters are the section of meals for two people, and the "20 ingredients" chapter, where you keep 20 ingredeints on hand to make each of the 20 recipes. Favorite menus include peppered beef tenderloin with orange-herbed asparagus and crusty french rolls, pan-seared chicken in proscuitto-fig sauce with roasted green beans, caesar-style green salad, and whole grain rolls, chicken piccata with garlic-basil pasta and steamed green beans, and seared chicken with avocado and tortilla chips con queso... yum!!!!!

This book is wonderful. The meals have minimal ingredients and require minimal time to prepare and cook. Many times with meals like this they lack flavor. That is not a problem with these recipes. As a mom, I love the "On Hand" section. In this section they give you 20 ingredients to keep on hand. With these you can make 20 different meals. I really have enjoyed it.

The first time through this cookbook, I found myself only making the slow cooker recipes (I like the slow cooker recipes in this book better than the Cooking light slow cooker cookbook). Subsequent times through the book, I found myself trying more and more recipes. Everything I have made has been easy, practical, and great tasting. This is now my most used cookbook.
Adding 2 Years later:
Still my most used cookbook. Easy, practical recipes that result in great tasting dishes - worthy of company.
