Check it out of the library for some ideas and don't waste your money! I was very disappointed because the concept is so nice (i.e. how can I take my boring basic pasta salad recipe and "jazz it up" a dozen ways? Oh, use Orzo, lemon, oregano and feta cheese and call it Greek! or use tortellini, pepperoni and cubed mozzarella with vinagrette and call it "Pizza Style") but the recipes leave a lot to be desired.

Pros:
Great pictures
Easy to read through
Good ideas for "variations on a theme" as stated above of pasta salad, mashed potatoes, burgers, no bake desserts

Cons:
Even as a somewhat experienced home cook, I needed a few more words in the recipe instruction. This is the actual recipe for Pizza Pissaladiere: "Stretch dough into pan; scatter with carmelized onions and anchovies; bake 15 minutes at 450 until crust is golden". How many onions? Yellow or red onions? How many anchovies? Do I dice or slice the onion? Dice or leave anchovies whole? How about a quick "carmelizing onions" lesson, without sacrificing the precious "tweetable" nature of the recipes? Even though I'm somewhat experienced, I still find it hard to judge how much of a vegetables to use between the cooked and raw state.

Same thing with the "basic recipe" for skewers (lamb, chicken, beef). It just calls for marinating the meat of choice, skewering and "grilling until desired doneness"...Not helpful! How long for medium, rare, etc? And we all know chicken is "until you're sure it won't poison anyone" which is about how long? A few extra words here and there and it would have been a fun and useful find to pull out before parties or potlucks.

I honestly can say that this cookbook is a delight, I do not agree with a lot of the reviewers as I have had no issues with the content presentation. I too am an experienced cook with a vast array of cookbooks at my disposal but this one has something that entices me for an everyday quick and out of the ordinary mealtime blah. The concept is pretty straightforward - variations on kebabs, burgers, drinks and breakfasts... a short paragraph with ingredients that most of us already have at our disposal and preparation techniques that every experienced cook already knows. It's not meant to provide the instructions or foundations of cooking, it's assumed that as someone who has experience cooking will know how to caramelize an onion, as well as when chicken is no longer pink inside and the juice runs clear - it's ready. That said, if you are seeking this sort of guidance one can always google it, or buy a cookbook that provides more grounding or one with more step-by-step instructions. This is really meant as a fun and refreshing everyday tool or something to use when you want to put together a quick party replete with drinks and appetizers or experiment with a new way to cook.

If you're looking for hamburger recipes then this is the book for you, however I found that there was very little variety to the main entrees. I can honestly say I never wanted 30 pages of hamburger recipes.

I should have looked at the table of contents before picking up the book...I was really let down by the lack of variety in the main dishes section.

On the plus side the recipes are very simple, I just struggle to find one I would be excited to make.

I got excited when I first flipped through this cookbook because the design and layout is very unique. Large beautiful photos accompany tiny recipes that sound simple. The introduction describes the recipes as "tweets". A typical one reads like this: "Smoked Mozzarella Pizza: Stretch 1 pound dough into a 15-inch round. Top with olive oil, salt, chopped thyme and oregano, 1 minced garlic clove and 6 ounces sliced smoked mozzarella. Bake until crisp. Top with 1/4 cup ricotta and grated parmesan; bake until melted." There are about 6-8 recipes per page in large print with a photo of one of them featured. I could not decide who this cookbook is intended for. It will appeal to beginner cooks , however, I just don't see how an inexperienced cook would find enough information in these "tweets" to understand how to do them. As for more experienced cooks, there is not much of interest unless you want 50+ recipes for various kinds of burgers. The book is good, perhaps, for getting ideas for various ways to prepare a certain dish. The kinds of recipes covered in the book are "Appetizers and Desserts" (dips, tea sandwiches, nachos, potato skins), "Breakfast and Brunch" (smoothies, pancakes, eggs), "Main Dishes" (soups, kebabs, burgers, pizza, panini), "Salads & Sides" (green, potato, pasta, beans), "Drinks & Desserts" (cold, hot, cocktails, brownies, cookies, no-bake). The book is fun to look through - I just don't think I will be using it that often.

So I decided to get this cook book because I love the Food Network. I am also not a great cook so I thought something with photos would help me out a lot when cooking. I made my first recipe today. Fresh tomato soup and it was amazing. This is a must have for new cooks or people just moving into their own place. There are not a lot of ingredients per recipe and it makes food for all group types.
