The recipes look very tasty, and my wife and I are looking forward to trying some of them. Recipes are geared toward quick, easy preparation, with many of them taking only 5-10 minutes to prepare. Some recipes rely on store-bought prepared foods like rotisserie chicken or frozen shredded hash brown potatoes. The majority of recipes require a half hour or less, including prep time, to prepare, although some recipes require several hours of advance preparation for marinating.
Overall, this looks like a fine cookbook for preparing quick, delicious meals. My only negative comment - and it's not a huge one - is that side dishes are listed with main dishes instead of being listed separately. For example, with a recipe for Coffee-Marinated Beef Tenderloin Steaks is a side dish recipe for Grilled Asparagus and Tomatoes. The side dish would go well together with many other main dishes, but you wouldn't see it if you didn't read the Tenderloin recipe. I would have preferred to see the side dishes listed separately so they could have been found more easily.
I read the cookbook on my Kindle Fire HDX 7" tablet.
I have several Apple devices and a Microsoft device. The Apple devices seem to be handling the ebook very well.
ON MY MICROSOFT SURFACE all of the links appear to be nonfunctional. This means from the Table of Contents I can't just tap a heading, such as "Meatless Main" and go to that chapter. Once at a chapter heading there are also links for each recipe within the chapter. They don't work either. There is no index that I could find, so this borders on useless for my Surface.
What are they thinking? The side dishes are not listed under the chapter headings (only the main dish). So the only way of finding a side dish is to go through the entire book page by page, or try looking up words, say garlic or bread under the word search! You would get far too many results. (I am guessing; so far my copy does not have a search ability.)
Does anybody at the publishers ever cook?
