I first borrowed this cookbook from my local library and ended up falling in love with it. I love that the book is divided by season and then furthermore divided by type of meat/no meat for that season. It helps come up with ideas for last second meals, too. Every recipe so far has had less than 10 ingredients and we have loved everything we have made.

I have to disagree with the previous reviewer that this cookbook results in expensive or bland meals. Even if you throw out the cherries or pineapple that is unused, that costs what, $2? We are now on our fourth meal from this cookbook and they have all been excellent. In addition, this is for less $$ than we were spending before.

For the last few months while trying to keep our expenses down we subsisted entirely on frozen skillet meals, hamburger helper meals, or other packaged pre-prepared meals(like costco might sell). Looking at this book I doubted that a person could consistently make a tasty meal in 30 minutes and spend a lot less money than we were spending on skillet meal style dinners.

But now I'm a believer. Even on meals that require expensive steak tenderloins(fillet mignon) it is costing less than we spent previously, although granted the fillet mignons were on a great sale. For example the meal we are eating now:

Chicken - $5
Condensed minestrone - $1.5
Biscuits - $3
Cream Cheese - $2 - Used 1/3 package, so technically $0.67
Milk, Flour - < $0.50

= $12 - $10.67 if you can re-use the cream cheese, which you should be able to.

This produced enough food for 4 people(us + the next days lunch), so $2.60 each. And it tasted 4x as good as a $2.50 frozen meal, with more food.

Other meals are similarly priced, particularly if you can get the main ingredient on sale(Fish, Turkey, Steaks, ground beef, etc.)

The genius of this book is the "short cut" ingredients, like the above mentioned condensed minestrone. This recipe results in a variation of chicken pot pie, and minestrone contains most of the ingredients for this in one quick step. The previous recipe we used had us use some chili as the short cut ingredient.

Highly recommended.

I love quick & easy recipes with clever and delicious menu suggestions. This book really filled the bill. I can grab the ingredients on the way home, (some items don't need cooking), put them together in a hurry, and I'm dinner party ready. Plus, I look like an inventive cook to all my friends. P.S. These menus will appeal to families, too.
