I was really disappointed with this book - I bought it about a year ago and # of times used = 0. I was hoping this would be more traditional, familiar meals that could be prepared in 30 minutes, but no such luck. Half of the recipes have titles that I've never heard of, and most have ingredients that you wouldn't find at your every day grocery store. I wouldn't even know what would be a suitable substitute. Nothing even sounds appetizing. If you were already familiar with cooking, this book may be of more use, but as a beginner looking for some quick, healthy recipes for my new family, this did not work out.
This cookbook was a huge dissappointment to me. I was expecting to open the book and find great ideas and recipes to make family meals a little more healthy and exciting again! Just a few of the recipes look ok to me...but I am adult. My kids would not like any of these recipes, I am sure! Scandinavian Beet Burgers hmmm, try serving that to a 14 year old! Tibetan Boetuk..what is that? So, to sum it all up in one thought...
this is one cookbook that will grow old in a book shelf of other dust gathering bad purchases. My advice is to go see it in the book store first if you think you may still be interesed. I would have chosen to pass on this one if I had taken my own advice and previewed it first!!!
