I've now had this book in my kitchen for over 6 weeks now and every week's meal plan has featured at least two recipes from this book. The "Healthy in a Hurry" concept is an excellent one for modern mothers struggling to prepare wholesome meals with little time to spend in that short window between the end of the workday and the 6:30pm hockey practice. As the book's subtitle suggests, the recipes are appropriate for quick and simple everyday suppers. There is not much here that you'd want to serve for special occasions, but the book is a great resource for an almost endless variety of tasty weekday meals that can be whipped up in minutes.
The author takes his inspiration from a wide variety of culinary traditions. Meals are inspired by Korean, Thai, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Italian, Southwestern, Indian, Greece and North African cuisines. Approximately two thirds of the 150 recipes are accompanied by full-color photos. Each recipe provides information such as prep and cook time and nutrition information, as well as stating whether the recipe is high in fiber, low in carbs, or appropriate for a "healthy weight" lifestyle. "Nutrition Bonuses" are provided for recipes that contain 15% or more of the daily value of specific nutrients.
Aside from the recipes, the book is divided into helpful sections that can be useful in meal planning such as stocking your pantry, seasonal menu suggestions and vegetarian meals. Three sections provide ideas, not strictly recipes, for sauces, sides and desserts "in a hurry.Read more ›
1) Pictures of more than 3/4 of the recipes (Color pictures are the best)
2) A spiral binding, or at least one that easily lays flat
3) New & innovative recipes that have ingredients I can easily find at a grocery store
I also prefer if the cookbook lists all of the nutrient information including sodium, fat content, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates.
I picked up this book to find new ideas to make a quick meal in-between working and shuffling the kids to various sporting and school events. Let's face it, eating out isn't always the best for you, especially since you cannot always tell exactly how much fat or sodium you are ingesting. I wanted some new recipes to try, but not necessarily a dish that would have my kids eyeing it suspiciously and saying "what is it?". I was not disappointed.
The book offered many beautiful color photographs, and the pages themselves were glossy and thick...not the cheaper paper that many cookbooks use. All of the nutrient information was included, along with a column called "Nutrient Bonus" that lets you know if the dish contained a lot of Vitamin C, Calcium, etc. The book was hard cover, but the binding was loose enough that my copy easily lays flat, another good bonus so that I was not always struggling to keep my page open. It also contains a rather large vegetarian section.
Some of our favorites include: Seafood Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette, Bistro Beef Salad, Vietnamese Style Beef & Noodle Broth, Mock Risotto, Chicken Stuffed with Golden Onions & Fontina, Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers, Beer-Battered Tilapia with Mango Salsa, and Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes. Enjoy!
I love this book and its companion, EatingWell Serves Two. I seem to have two types of cookbooks: healthy (such as the Mayo Clinic) and quick/easy (as in cookbooks that advertise how few ingredients each recipe will use). EatingWell's Hurry cookbooks are the only ones that combine both.
It's been a learning process for me. Sometimes I need to google ingredients (what are fennel seeds? Where will they be in the grocery store? What's a plum tomato?) or get new equipment (Where's the broiler pan? Oh, oops, I guess we don't have one), but that's a joy, because as I do these things step by step I know I am gaining knowledge and experience (and gear and ingredients).
So let's face it; if I can do these recipes, then they are easy enough to be in some kind of cooking for dummies cookbook, and yet they are super tasty and I'm not embarrassed to serve them, even to people who aren't married to me.
If I could be in an infomercial for these cookbooks I would. In my late 20's it was finally time for me to learn how to cook (and force myself to do it more than once a week), and I don't think I could have done it without these cookbooks.
