4.0 out of 5 stars HELP! For the challenged cook..., November 4, 2010
By 
This review is from: Rachael Ray's Look + Cook (Paperback)
Rachael Ray has published a cookbook a bit different from her others and there are 125 new recipes in it. Some of them are actually almost gourmet but yet simple. You could really wow your family or company by following these simple directions, which include step by step pictures for many of the recipes. A beginning cook or those that feel challenged by trying to create a nice meal would do well to get this book.
Even her cozy food/comfort food has slight twists in the ingredients that would impress, plus - surprise be better for you; like shepherds pie with sweet potato crust rather than just plain white mashed potatoes and made with turkey rather than ground beef, Caesar spaghetti with escarole will `sneak' some green vegetables into even a picky eater's diet. Don't miss the sausage and fish one pot for something different and easy to prepare and good to eat, as are many of the meals in here.
There are suggestions for additions to the main dish to make a complete meal and recipes for them, with the page number included.

About the only problem I had is that many pages are missing page numbers and you have to go back several pages to make sure you have found or are near the right page. Also, it is surprising how much more appetizing the meals are that have pictures; there are 86 pages without pictures and all of that print is done in red, which for some people might be hard to read, especially the ingredient list which is overprinted on a rose colour section.

The book contains recipes for: cozy food/comfort food, make your own take out, such as cashew chicken, fancy fake outs, 30 minute meals, meals that kids will eat, sides and starters, simple sauces and such to use that last bit of the jar of things such as olives or barbeque sauce and desserts.
A beginning cook or an experienced one who would just like something a bit simpler would enjoy this cookbook.
