Caveats: I am an unsophisticated cook with no-better-than-average kitchen skills. I hate following recipes. If my wife and I both followed the same recipe, her version would look and taste 50% to 75% better than mine.
Comments: So far, I've made five dishes from this cookbook: Chicken in Paprika Sauce, Moroccan Couscous, Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Bell Peppers, Baked Apples with Raisins and Walnuts, and Pancetta and Spinach Frittata. This is not a huge sample to judge from, I know, but the dishes do include a breakfast, a chicken entree, a pork entree, a side dish, and a dessert.
What I've found is this:
First, I made five recipes! I've been receiving "Eating Well" magazine for two years and they have plenty of attractive and healthy recipes but I haven't tried even one. In this cookbook, the dishes are appealing enough, the recipes easy enough (not EASY, but easy ENOUGH), the ingredients common enough, and the prep time brief enough to pull me in. That's marvelous.
Second, the resulting dishes taste good but not great. Except for the Chicken in Paprika Sauce, which came out on the bitter side, and the Moroccan Couscous, which has a very vibrant, fruity flavor, the dishes came out a bit bland. This is almost certainly a matter of personal taste.Read more ›
