While a number of the big name Food Network chefs were inspirations to me, none was more important to my learning to cook than Emeril Lagasse. His recipes work and provide lots of flavor. Plus they are direct enough for those of us who want to cook but don't have training. Some of his recipes do require more work than others, but none are impossible. And I have always found them rewarding. My oldest son says that if the recipe is from Emeril he is willing to try the dish no matter what it is because they have always been good.
This book is especially nice for home cooks who have busy lives and want to cook quick, fresh, tasty, and affordable meals after work or on busy weekends. I have made a number of the recipes and they are all easy to follow, tasty, and I believe you and your family will love what you prepare. The shrimp etouffee has become one of my standards that I use for guests and they always like it. The goat cheese and caramelized tarts were also a hit. I also like the Salad Tropicale, which is easy and tasty - it is tropical because of the hearts of palm, avocado, and tomato.Read more ›
The book is organized into meals that can be prepared in 20, 40 or 60 minutes. Furthermore, the recipes are further organized into sections such as soups, salads, pasta etc. This layout really helps for a recipe search. There are several color pictures (I would have liked more--and would be willing to have paid more for this feature) throughout the book. Each recipe has a very small anecdote or tip written by Emeril, in his tone--you can hear him "talking" to you.
Here and there, I make a substitution with the ingredients because my husband cannot eat peppers and there are some ingredients that my family does not like.
So far I've made:
Kicked up Tuna Melts (subbed harp cheddar for provolone and did not include cornichons)
Orange Currant Pine Nut Couscous (walnuts for pine nuts)
Sauteed Yellow Squash w Carrots and Tarragon (thyme for tarragon, it's what I'm growing in my herb garden)
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Broiled Salmon with Tomato Lemon vinaigrette
Stir Fried Chicken w Cashews
NY Strip Steak w Beure Maite d'hotel
Oven Crisy Fries w paprika parm salt (used Essence in lieu of pakrika)
Pasta Primavera (awesome!!Read more ›

A review by Marty Martindale
This is Emeril's 14th cookbook, each more applicable to the help you need in the kitchen. Another name he has for this book is, "Make the meals you want in the time you have." No one knows better how much you wish to serve quality meals while meeting demanding schedules.
This book is divided into three sections: one for 20 minutes' preparation and cooking, the second for 40 minutes and the third group takes 60 minutes. Each section has its own index divided into food type sections for soups, starters, salads down to poultry, meat and desserts.
Here are a few which look interesting: (Ready in 20 minutes)
SWEET PEA SOUP:
Combine sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, butter, onion, garlic, mint, parsley, stock, frozen peas and spinach.
ORANGE, FENNEL AND BLACK OLIVE SALAD:
Calls for orange juice, fennel bulbs, red onion, Kalamata olives, navel oranges, orange zest, red wine vinegar, shallots, honey and olive oil
FISH TACOS WITH BLACK BEAN SALSA:
Canned black beans, olive oil, jalapeno pepper, fresh lime, garlic, fish fillets, cornmeal, flour tortillas, shredded romaine, lime wedges and sour cream

Linguine, olive oil, butter, bacon, onion, garlic, egg yolks Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and black pepper
ROASTED CARROTS WITH THYME:
