The ingredients lists are manageable and the steps are simple and written clearly. I have been known to run for McDonald's when I open a cookbook with recipes that require pounding chicken to .78 inch thickness, or long lists of obscure and expensive ingredients.
The recipes provide lots of variety for our family, and they really are quick and easy to prepare. There is a nice range of healthy choices, and some indulgent options as well. Nutritional information, including calories from fat/saturated fat, is provided for each recipe per serving, in addition to Diet Exchange information (number of starches, vegetables, meats, etc.). Most of the recipes are marked for 4 servings.
The format is also user-friendly. Ingredients are listed at the top in bold, and cooking steps are clearly separated from each other, so you can quickly check directions as you go. Since the book has a 5-ring binder format, you get the benefit of having the recipe lay flat, no matter what page you're on.
The section divider pages, which list all the recipes for that chapter, are stored in the back, away from the actual chapters and behind the index, which is rather inconvenient. Fortunately, you can move them if you like, since it's a binder.
Also, while this book offers plenty of great family recipes that you could also use for entertaining, it's not about the unique and gourmet.
While many other books have similar recipes to these here and there, this is the best collection I've found. The pictures and steps make it highly accessible to busy families, and I recommend it!
This book was exactly what I was looking for! It actually makes cooking more fun, ...and easier. It really gets the creative juices flowing! I've already got many recipes marked that I wanna try. The recipes are simple,and can be adjusted to suit what you want. They're actually practical, too. This is stuff people actually eat, it's not just for looks, y'know?
Oh, and it comes in a binder-fashion cover, making it easier to look thru, since you don't have to hold your place. Every page has some sort of little hint or tip, too. Each recipe also includes the nutritional information; calories, carbohydrates etc. There are also several pages that list foods with a shelf life, kitchen gadgets(and what they actually do), 1-step recipes, microwave solutions, a glossary of cooking terms, and time-saving cooking tips.
I especially like that I can take the basics of a recipe, and make it into what I want.
I would recommend this cookbook to beginners and experienced cooks alike.
I picked up this book at my local library, and will be adding it to my collection. No, it is not Martha Stewart. But, included in this colorful cookbook are over 300 recipes to put dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less. Yes, the recipes do contain canned goods, frozen vegetables, and packaged side dishes. However, if you are looking for a quick meal with items from your freezer and pantry, give some recipes a try. Most of the recipes have full color photographs (a big bonus for any cookbook!), a spiral binding that easily lays flat, and information on prep time and bake time. Another thing that this book includes (which many cookbooks lack) is nutrient information including calories, fat grams, sodium, and Diet Exchanges.
Some of my family's favorites include: Ramen Stir-Fry, Countryside Pasta Toss, Orange Teriyaki Beef with Noodles, Easy Cheesy Vegetable Soup, Key Lime Fruit Salad, and Tex Mex Pizza. Enjoy!
