"It's not just nostalgia for mac and cheese and fried bologna sandwiches, although recipes for both are in there. The book is full of recipes that most people could cook at home, and be happy they did. Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies? Check. A chopped salad? Yes. Dijon salmon? Uh-huh. Faux-tisserie chicken and vegetables? Here for it." - Quartz

The book isn’t just gimmicks, however. The recipes are legit, and each one is photographed in full color, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Each recipe is preceded by a paragraph about why the recipe is included – whether it’s “a certified hood classic” or a recipe encountered for the first while on tour that has become one of his favorites. It’s a fun, eclectic collection.
One of my favorite things about the book is that when I read the introductions, I can hear Snoop’s voice in my head – he translates very well to the page. I also loved the pictures of what’s in Snoop’s pantry and refrigerator and his notes about why each item deserves a place in his kitchen.
Whether you’re interested in the cookbook for kitsch value or you want to eat like tha Boss Dogg, From Crook to Cook is a fun addition to your cookbook collection!
The book is very visually pleasing. Every recipe came with a visual to follow, as did the fun "what's in my pantry" section, that came with each chapter. This was extremely fun to look at, and inviting. The recipes all have proven unique, but not challenging, as other reviews promised.
The book offers a lot of variety in meal type as well. The dinner section is especially diverse, with everything from mac and cheese, to lobster tail. Browsing the table of contents, I was concerned that very few of the recipes were as simple as their promotion stated, but each has proven to be the same level of difficulty with varying levels of prep time necessary.
Physically, the book itself was well constructed. Though technically ‘paperback’ the cover is actually a thick vinyl, and the pages a lightweight cardstock. This made the book seem more durable, and less susceptible to damage from food residue to humidity from cooking. The cover seems as though it could easily be wiped down if a spill were to occur. The binding was thick but not stiff, and weighted just enough that I could leave the book open on my counter and it would hold the page I had turned to. Before passing the gift on to my mother, my roommates and I all looked through it, and the binding showed no signs of creasing. Overall I would say this book exceeded expectations and was well worth the purchase.
