Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Food Network stars The Deen Brothers give home cooks 125 ideas for quick meals in this accessible collection. Emphasizing comfort foods like Cheeseburger Casserole, Mini Meat Loaves and Spaghetti and Meatballs, the Deen brothers give harried cooks plenty of options for getting dinner on the table with a minimum of investment or fuss. A handful of crockpot recipes and a dozen kid-friendly recipes for items like Pecan Catfish Fish Sticks, quesadillas and beans and franks will be welcomed by busy parents. Thoughtful organization-placing suggested sides for for burgers, Honey Mustard Baked Chicken and Grilled Chicken Breasts with Brown Sugar Pineapple Rings on subsequent pages-minimizes in-kitchen page-flipping. Fans of the Deen boys' mom, Paula Deen, will be pleased to see the apples falling close to the tree, as evidenced by Pimiento Mac and Cheese, Grilled Bacon and Cheese Jalapeno Poppers, Shrimp and Grits and Panfried PB & J. An accessible mix of the familiar and gently tweaked standards (Mini Macaroni Pies, Grilled Tilapia Po Boys), busy fans of Deen family cooking will likely devour this latest volume.

You will enjoy cooking and eating using this book.

Like most of the recipes because they are easy and require ingredients that are usually in my pantry.
Still Cooking
It is easy to follow and the recipes I've tried so far have been very good and easy to prepare.

I was interested in this book because of their promotion that the meals are primarily easy, healthy and child friendly. I pretty much agree with it all. Though there are several recipes with a high spice level, there are many mild recipes like the Pesto Chicken with cherry tomatoes and Apple Cider Pork Tenderloin that my child will eat. The cookbook has many informative sections such as the contents of a well stocked pantry as well as great pictures of the whole Deen crew. The "Jack Favorites" section offers a healthy spin on child friendly foods. (I liked the idea of adding avocados to a cheese quesadilla.) Overall I found the cookbook to be well organized, informative and easy to read with uncomplicated, yet appealing recipes.

For once a book that delivers what it promises! Besides the fact that the recipes are great...comfort food like mac n cheese, and new twists like huevos rancheros...it is full of clever little tips that make everything clear and easy. Sometimes, just following a recipe isn't enough...there is always one little instruction that makes a difference in the final product if you don't quite get it. But, with the tips it has proven to be fail-safe, even for me. I am one of those people that can be a disaster in the kitchen...I am always in a hurry and never have enough time. I don't home cook as often as I should. But this book has inspired me to stop the nasty fast food habit and cook something tasty and healthful for my family...and you know...in the end I am saving time. Yippee!

This cookbook is full of quick and easy recipes for those busy nights in our household. The recipes are made with everyday common ingredients that most people will either have in their pantry or will have no problems finding in their local grocery store. I hate when recipes have ingredients that take some searching to find. I'm all about good taste and ease when it comes to cooking everyday meals.

Jaimie and Bobby Deen are charming as ever. They know their way around the kitchen. You can tell that family time is important to them and isn't that part of what dinner is all about? I think most of these recipes are easy enough for a basic cook but are tasty enough for the more experienced cook. The recipes are easy to follow and well explained. They are simple enough that you could involve your kids in the preparation. This would be a great cookbook to use to get that busy family back to the dinner table.

I hesitated to buy another cookbook but I am glad I got this one. The recipes are simple; the ingredients easily obtainable. I was particularly interested in the fish recipes but I also like the kids cooking section; I think my granddaughters will enjoy that when they come for vacation. We will cook together!I will admit being partial to Paula and the Deen family, but nonetheless, I don't buy a lot of cookbooks. This one is a keeper!

The Deen brothers, Jamie and Bobby are chips off the old block of their mamma, Paula. They love food, their profession is working with food and when they go home at night they want to prepare food that is quick, easy and tasty. This is a cookbook that incorporates good food, where to shop, what to use, how to prepare the food and get it on the table quickly. It is all tasty and looks good. They even give us food suggestions for children.

The cookbook starts out with a few words from Jamie, Bobby and mamma, Paula. Then onto staples in the kitchen. A one page sheet full of good info. 'Meats' is the first chapter and it is filled with several recipes for using hamburger- the one that catches my eye is 'Speedy Mini Meat Loaves'- great idea, make it in muffin tins. London broil and pork recipes follow. The one issue I have is that several of the hamburger recipes are loaded with fat. Need to figure out how they stay so slim! 'Poultry' follows and 'Baked Chicken with herbs' seems to be calling me! There are many chicken and turkey recipes. A staple in many families. Onto 'Fish'- the shrimp recipes look delicious and there are many varied forms of fish recipes. 'Grilling' is next. Who of us does not like to grill? The burger and the chicken grilling are sumptuous! 'Pasta and Friends' is next. I think I make the best spaghetti and meatballs around and I would put my recipe in here, if they let me. Lots of good pasta recipes. 'Crock pot Cooking' follows- this could be the best part of the cookbook- beef chili, stew, sweet and sour pork and turkey vegetable goulash sound like the best. 'Main Course Salads'- chopped, pasta, chicken and tortellini salads have my mouth watering. Then we come to 'Recipes for Jack'-'beef fingers, quesadillas, mac and cheese and good things for kids.

Ever come home from a hectic day at work, yearning for a really good meal, but you don't have the time to create a masterpiece? Well, here's the answer to your prayers.

The Deen Bros. Take It Easy cookbook is filled with quick, easy dishes certain to tempt your palette. Sample the Quick Braised Chicken with Rosemary and Potatoes, Sauteed Shrimp with Bacon and Mushrooms or Balsamic-Glazed London Broil followed by Tortellini Tricolore Salad. Finish in a flourish with a no-fuss dessert such as Double Strawberry Shortcake, Ten-Minute Blackberry Cream Pie or Southern Ambrosia Snowballs. Your family will love digging into these tasty dishes and you'll appreciate all of those rave reviews, too!
