Yes, his book is basic. Yep, if you have been cooking for a while, there are better books out there. But, if you are trying to learn to cook, don't have time to make frosting, and just want to get basic ideas to start from...he has a good book going here. His second book it better. As for using store bought items, most of the celeb chefs do that now...rarely do you see people making their own chicken stock or veal stock anymore...This book is what it is...as simple, easy to use cookbook that provides basic directions. Remember that the whole premise of his show is cooking good meals cheaply and quickly. While Rachel Ray may have him beat when it comes to time and complexity...he still beats her when it comes to cost, time, and taste.

So, if you are just starting out...might be worth a look...if you are already a good cook, there are SO many other books out there that will give you the challenge you are looking for. Since I am not rating them, I give this one 4 stars because it is easy to read, easy to use, good for starting out, and provides low cost, nice meals that if you accidentally trash them in the learning process...you will not be out that much.

Love ya Dave.

Every recipe we've made has come out great! This book is geared at people who might not have all the fancy utensils, a big kitchen, or money/desire to buy unusual or expensive ingredients. Cooking techniques are explained and flavors are great. Recipes for weeknight dinners, entertaining, impressing a date, and feeding a crowd! Great for recent grads and newlyweds!

I have been working my way through this cookbook, and each recipe has been delicious. It's worth buying just for the mohito recipe, which is AMAZING! It's the best mohito you'll ever have, but be careful not to enjoy them too much (like I did) or you'll be puking up mint leaves.

the recipes in that book are so basic (and simple) that purchasing this book was not the best purchase i have made.

He has recipes like Ham, peas, dill. Wow, that is really something, isn't it? NOT!!!

Then he lists all the utensils/pots/dry herbs that he has in his kitchen. Who cares?

Then he tells stories of how he tried cooking when he was 7 yrs old. Again, who cares? This is not a story telling competition.

Another recipe that comes to mind asked for store bought frosting. There many other recipes that called for store bought items (instead of making them himself). If i wanted store bought recipe, i'd read the recipe on the back of the frosting container.

I went through the book the other day trying to get as many interesting recipes out of it as i could. Alas, i was able to come up with just 2.

I love Dave's show, but this book is very, very basic with not a lot of beef. No pun intended
