Food Network star Robin Miller gives Rachael Ray a run for her money with her new cookbook, Quick Fix Meals. Focused on time-saving strategies for putting delicious food on the table, Miller's first cookbook is organized by technique, including "Meal Kits" (pre-prepping the ingredients and having them ready to go in the fridge), "Greased Lightning" (tasty recipes that can be on the table in 20 minutes), and more. Want to know more? Check out our exclusive video from Robin Miller, below. --Daphne Durham

I preordered this book (placed my order on Feb 21), and it arrived Mar 13 (it didn't hit the stands until Mar 12, so I was impressed with the Amazon delivery service -- especially since I did the Super Saver shipping). But anyway, about the book...
I was looking forward to this book's release, since I enjoy the show. I compare Robin Miller to Rachel Ray's "30 minute Meals" series, so I'm also comparing their cookbooks. The recipes in this book are very similar to Rachel's recipes. If you're looking to spice up your dinner time, you'll find little difference between Robin's book and Rachel's series (they have the same types of recipes with interesting ingredients and flavors that "normal" folks like me would never think of trying). Most recipes don't have tons of ingredients, but they do have ingredients that require everyday folks to make a special trip to the grocery store. Don't expect to open this book and just start having dinner.
Both cooks claim to have the secret to great dinner in a flash. I sum up the difference between Robin and Rachel as this: Robin just takes you a few steps back and tells you HOW to make it quick, not just how to cook. She comes out the winner because she gives you the secret: pre-planning, prepping, and a well-stocked kitchen.
The first chapter in the book explains her strategies, such as "In the Bag" -- creating meal kits and storing them in fridge or freezer for later use, and "Morphing It" -- using one dish to create many others. Not exactly rocket science, but if you're a full-time working mom like me, you just never quite heard or saw it put this way.
She also includes a section on how to get your kitchen to be "quick fix" friendly.

I pre-ordered the book and I figured there would be a few ideas I could use from it...and I would have been OK with that..This book pleasantly exceeded my expectations. I have almost all of Rachel Ray's cookbooks and I thought this would be similar to them....the imaginative use of flavors and ingredients in this book far surpass anything Rachel has come up with to date. I am excited by these recipes. I have loved the ones I have tried so far...Apricot and Jalapeno Chicken is amazing! The Banana Raspberry Bread was so easy and so flavorful...give this book a chance...try the recipes....this book isn't just a Quick Meal Cookbook, although her tips are easy to do and really do make a difference if you are short on time..even if you are not short on time, you need this book, the flavors are bright and new, its not just a book full of the same old casserole recipes that tell you to you change the meat or the sauce...this cookbook will let your imagination help you in the kitchen...you can travel the world with the recipes here... I am so happy I added this book to my collection and I am going to buy one for my best friend.

I rarely submit reviews of my own. Usually I wouldn't bother if somebody else already said what I wanted to say. But this time, I feel I need to make some effort to show my appreciation to Robin Miller because her book has become a big help to me.

This book contains great quick fix recipes that are very easy to follow. It's also smartly organized into different categories (In the bag, Morph it, Dinner express and Simple sides). The recipes belonging to "In the bag" category are truly the dishes that you can save in the refrig for two days and still taste good.

I've own quite a few popular cookbooks. But none of the other books

got so much use in such a short period. I'm glad that I've found this book and highly recommend it to all the busy working moms.

The book itself is pretty and very easy to follow.

The recipes are delicious (I've made a handful already in the last two days). The whole concept is amazing especially for busy people like me.

I had fun reading the book and checking out her tips.

If you have other cookbooks and want to add to your collection, do not hesitate to purchase this book. If you want to buy a present for a new bride or someone just learning to cook, this book is perfect.
However, I wouldn't buy this for a food snob because its not really geared towards being sophisticated (although many of the dishes are fancy yet very easy to make).

EDITED ADDITIONAL COMMENTS BELOW ON 4/16/07:
Okay, so I've had the book now for several weeks and I've used it every single weekend and impressed my husband and myself.. I have so many cookbooks that I don't use and are basically just sitting there as decoration in my kitchen. This one is my absolute favorite cookbook of all time! Its easy to use, very tasty menu selection, with few ingrediants yet very creative... I love this book!

I'll admit, I was raised to believe that anything not completely homemade "from scratch" was to be frowned upon but as a woman working 40 hours a week outside the home, holding myself to that standard has caused me more than a little stress! What a treat to discover Robin Miller's Quick Fix Meals. Her recipes use a well balanced combination of pre-packaged and pre-prepared convenience foods--such as salad mixes and ready-made pie crust--and fresh ingredients. Her approach is to use convenience foods, not as a replacement for homemade fare, but as time saving tools that allow a person to quickly prepare complete, good tasting meals at home without having to fall back on fast food during the busy work week. So far, I've enjoyed each recipe I've made. I've also found it easy to alter the recipes to reduce fat and sodium. This one is definitely a keeper for me!
