From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Culled from Bon Appetit magazine's Fast, Fresh, Easy column, this recipe compendium is one of the largest available for those who love to cook and eat well but lack time on weeknights to make dishes that require hours to prepare. Although Fairchild forgoes estimates of how long each dish may take to make, and a number of entries may not qualify as fast for some cooks, especially beginners, the recipes are generally simple, if not foolproof, and cover a vast territory of cuisines. Ingredient lists are short, seldom running over 10 items and rely on the use of the freshest, finest foods available; a helpful shopping guide at the beginning is a welcome aid to those not yet versed in the ingredients' seasonality or optimal appearance. Similarly, a wealth of boxed hints and tips offer an extra level of help to get people cooking confidently. Even if the fast and easy labels don't always apply, anyone looking for a reliable source of relatively uncomplicated, tasty dishes will be thrilled to find this. Color photos not seen by PW. (Oct.)

The cookbook starts with tell you how to stock a well stocked kitchen, from equipment, pots & pans, and tools. Next they tell you how to stock your pantry, refrigerator and Freezer. There is cooking terminology, How to's (pit an avocado, cut winter squash, peel a pineapple, toast nuts and many more), not really sure how they choose the topics but the information is helpful and tips (recipe preparation, ingredients, measuring and cooking).
There are a wonderful variety of recipes and anyone is surely able to find something to make from this cookbook. This cookbook is for impressing your eaters. The recipes are easily laid out but do not tell you preparation or cooking time at the being of the recipes, some make take longer to prepare then you realize. Some recipes also give you suggestions of food to accompany the dish you are preparing. Sometimes they will also tell you if you can use something different such as the recipe calls for pork but it may say that you could use chicken instead, I like this, makes it easier to use what you have on hand.
This is Bon Appetit so it is not unusual for a recipe to have many ingredients and some recipes may not be as easy for beginning cooks, but the only way to move from being a beginner cook is to step up to more difficult recipes.
The recipes are not heavily sorted by cuisines like Asian or Middle Easter although they do sort a few in this way. What I do like is that they sort recipes by ingredient, say you are looking to use coconut there are about 10 recipes listed under coconut. This is great if you have bought an item that you don't usually purchase and you are looking for a recipe to create with that item.
When I prepare recipes from this cookbook I am always pleased with myself and happy that my family enjoys the food. I also use this cookbook when I want to impress my guests and hear praises for my cooking.
She also loves the Bon Appetit magazine, and was thrilled that there is a cookbook that contains all the healthy recipes that she'd seen in her magazines. I strongly recommend this cookbook to anyone who is looking for healthy, fresh recipes that aren't difficult to make.
The actual recipes were ok but nothing spectacular. For example, under meats they had some generic burgers and steak. That's it! I can think of those types of recipes myself. Why not have some other, more creative recipes? Same with the pasta section, there were basic recipes for spaghetti or some kind of pasta with canned marinara and throwing in sausages. Yeah, I could have told you how to make that. There were some good recipes, especially under the chicken, fish, and stew sections. I'll definitely use many of the recipes, but not enough that makes me excited I bought this cookbook.
