Finally, a practical cookbook for putting together tasty, wholesome dinners when you are nearly out of energy. Bye-bye carry-out.
Marge Perry was featured in a recent Home Magazine article. I tried a couple of her recipes and ordered the book. I was not disappointed. The dinners are easy to make but don't taste like the "quick & easy" recipes they are. I've made several recipes from the book and my favorite (so far) is chicken with oranges and feta cheese. My husband is wild for the macaroni and cheese (made with a lot of tomatoes.)
I particularly like the way Ms. Perry keeps the number of pots & pans to a minimum. I've cooked my spinach in the pasta water for years but Ms. Perry has even more suggestions for quickly cooking the veggies along with another part of the dinner.
Novice and experienced cooks will appreciate the clear, simple instructions. This is obviously a home cook's book, not a book written by a professional chef with a professional support staff. As much as I enjoy the books written by the celebrity chefs, this is a book I can really use, night after night.

WOW! What a great book. As a novice in the kitchen I am always hesitant about books that promise easy weeknight dinners in no time, but Marge Perry delivers with her Dinner Tonight book. The recipes are simple to make, appealing to look at and even tastier to eat. I love it. I am working my way through each delicious chapter. I don't think I'll ever get bored with this one and just when I find a favorite like the Asian Burgers (which I love) I find a new favorite like the Quick Shrimp Gumbo or the Lemon Penne with Sausage and Spinach. Thanks for a great bunch of dinners. This one is a winner!

As a career person who works a lot of late hours I was forced to eat a lot of bad, unhealthy take-out. Then I found this book and my cooking passion was allowed to flourish. Since my book arrived I've literally cut out ordering in and spend the few minutes these recipes take to make and nourish myself in the process.

I highly recommend this cookbook to the busy person who likes to cook and likes diversity in food. The recipes come from all over and, as an added bonus, they are fast and easy. In addition, although the recipes are international, the ingredients can be found in my local supermarket.

This was a gift from my girlfriend and she has been reaping the rewards. I love it. The attractive, easy to read recipes are tasty and delicious. All the ingredients were available at my local supermarket and the serving suggestions are great. I love the way the book is broken out by food types: chicken recipes chapter, Pasta chapter etc. Thanks to the author for a practical kitchen tool!
