Now that she's branched out into all areas of cooking, she's just about the best around. Unlike some "quick" cookbooks, the recipes in this book actually ARE fast to make. They're professionally edited (no missing steps or phantom ingredients) and really (in general) easy to make.
You'll also meet some new ingredients. While not every recipe will send you to the gourmet food store, when you do end up making a trip it'll be worth it!
Creative Cuisine made Fast and Fresh
By Paulette Mitchell
A review by Marty Martindale
Mitchell challenges cooks to surprise themselves with what they can cook in 15 minutes, as she introduces delicious recipes infused with an international flair combined with fresh ingredients and basic pantry staples. These will be meals prepared with chef-like appearance, not hurried or complicated.
Her 300-page book is liberally sprinkled with yellow tip panels which she has indexed early in the book.Read more ›
--Jamaican Coconut Milk Chicken: So good I've made it 3 times in 2 weeks. Serve over coconut milk flavored rice and it's delicious. Even better the next day as the curry and flavors absorb more into the chicken.
--Curried pumpkin and black bean soup: Not thick as I expected, but full of flavor for a warm and filling lunch
--Five-Spice Shrimp with Plum Sauce: We wrapped ours in butter leaf lettuce. My 9-yr-old went back for 4 servings!
Easy to follow recipes, color photographs throughout the book, and great results. I've noticed many of the recipes call for curry powder, so make sure you like that before buying. For me, this is my new go-to cookbook of choice, and I am a collector of cookbooks, so that says a lot.

I've tried several recipes out of this book and they've all come out tasty. Sometimes not quite 15 minutes, at the most 30 minutes, but for the end product it's worth it. Read morePublished on July 17, 2013 by Jennifer Yanez
I love the book, but without a table of contents, it is difficult to scan for a recipe.
I gave it three stars only due to the lack of Table of Contents
