4.0 out of 5 stars Busy variations June 30, 2011
This `Taste of Home' book has 363 recipes that are supposed to only take 30 minutes to prepare. There are pictures for most of the recipes and many tips, such as, how flank steak should be sliced, and how to handle a pork loin.
Most are recipes, you would know if you are an experienced cook, but this will still give you ideas. Some of the recipes are very similar - the same basic idea with a little variation: sausage zucchini skillet,, sausage rice skillet, bow tie beef skillet, sausage and vegetable skillet - all just changing just a few ingredients.

Recipes included are; sandwiches and salads, soups, beef, pork, poultry, seafood, meatless, sides and desserts. There are 2 indexes, a general one and one with the main ingredient, which really comes in handy when looking through the pantry to find something to fix. Some of our family favorites are; linguine with garlic sauce and pistachio crusted salmon cakes.
These are quick ideas for hearty good tasting meals, which could help many who want to prepare enjoyable tasting quick meals.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book! There are lots of very easy, simple, and creative recipes. The book is well organized based on the main ingredient you want to cook, or you can just browse through it for something you've never tried before! It also has lots of little useful side notes for chefs at all experience levels. Definitely my favorite cookbook I own.
