Format: Paperback
500 recipes with 5 ingredients or less and 500 calories or less.... where do I sign up?!? You might think "how can you get a delicious meal when it has so few ingredients?" Well let me tell you... out of the recipes that I have made, I LOVED them! I have made the Pepper Jack Chicken w/ Chipotle Potato Chips (357 calories), Seared Steaks w/ Chipotle Butter (373 calories), Balsamic Glazed Burgers w/ Sauteed Onions & Peppers (428 calories) and my personal favorite Red Potato Salad w/Honey-Basil Vinaigrette (237 calories).

Robin Miller has done a fantastic job with this book. Very rarely do I love every recipe that I try from one cookbook. The directions are easy to follow and the ingredients are so simple that they are available at all grocery stores. It is perfect for weeknight meals in that the recipes are all around 30 minutes to an hour to make from start to finish. Honestly, what more would you want in a cookbook?

Format: Paperback
This is a practical cookbook by Food Network star Robin Miller that boasts 500 recipes with dishes that range from soups, pizzas, and pastas, to chicken, beef, pork, seafood, side dishes, and desserts, and that represent several ethnic cuisines. The appeal of the recipes is that each one uses five or less ingredients and is 500 calories or less. They are quick to prepare and many can be made ahead of time to make mealtime easier.

I found several recipes I want to try such as Buffalo Chicken Soup with Blue Cheese Crumbles, Gingerbread Tiramisu, Roasted Vegetable Salad, Pretzel-Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken, Spinach and Smoked Mozzarella Strudel, Beef and Corn Casserole with Pepper Jack Cheese, Baked Chicken with Black Olive Hummus, and Grilled Chicken with Tomato-Olive Salsa. Despite the gourmet-sounding names, the recipes are actually simple and unintimidating. I made the Buffalo Chicken Fingers with Blue Cheese-Chive Dip. It was a big hit with my family and very easy to make. I also enjoyed the Turkey Meat Loaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Parmesan as an alternative to the traditional meatloaf I usually make.

In reading through this cookbook, I didn't find any ingredients I couldn't find at my local grocery store which makes it all the more easy to use. There aren't as many photos as I'd like but enough to inspire me to try more of the recipes. This is a cookbook I know I'll use because the recipes are quick and easy, and one I think cooks from beginners to the more experienced will enjoy.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

Book was great use it almost daily.

Truly simple by limiting number of ingredients. How many times have you seen a recipe with 12 or more ingredients 3 which you both don't have and never heard of?

This is simple, fast, and great tasting.

Format: Paperback
It's a common experience to get home from work and have to get dinner on the table pronto because someone has baseball practice, someone else has to go to work, someone has a meeting. Robin Miller, host of the Food Network's Quick Fix Meals, has a solution for us with her book
Robin Takes 5: 500 recipes, 5 ingredients or less, 500 calories or less, 5 nights a week at 5PM.

Five hundred recipes is a lot, and many of them can be repetitive (and a good number of them use mustard for some reason), but I found several recipes that I will use. I'm trying to get more fiber in our diet, and Miller has some good recipes using all kinds of canned beans.

I know my college aged sons would enjoy Chicken Nacho Dinner, made by topping corn tortilla chips with a can of black beans, shredded chicken, shredded cheese and salsa and baking for 10 minutes. It also has 6g of fiber. I love that there are so many recipes in this book that have lots of fiber, including Cheese Tortellini with Wild Mushroom Gravy (9g), Pasta Spirals with White Beans, Broccoli and Parmesan (9g) and Penne with Zucchini-Roasted Garlic Sauce (8g), and one that I have already tried, Tuscan Chicken with White Beans, Tomatoes and Oregano (5g) that was really tasty and reminded me of one of our favorite dinners at an Italian restaurant we frequent. Next time, I would cook the chicken breasts whole, instead of dicing them, but another good thing about this book is that it is easy to tweak recipes to your own liking.

The book is divided into eight chapters, like Soups, Stews & Chowders, Pasta, Risotto & Rice, Chicken & Turkey, Side Dishes and Desserts. Now that fall is here, I can't wait to try Carmelized Onion Soup with Melted Swiss & Croutons, Wild Mushroom Soup, and Corn Chowder with Shrimp.

I was just browsing in Barnes&Noble when I saw this cookbook & I have to say I wasn't even looking for anything in particular when I picked it up. It is absolutely awesome. All of the recipes are super easy, super fast, & don't cost a fortune in ingredients. With a small child I no longer have time or energy for long complicated recipes so this is just my speed. There is such a variety of food I cannot imagine that anyone would not love it & use it regularly as we are all in a time crunch these days. You have to try it, I cannot say enough good things about it & I own many many cookbooks.
