Things I like about this book:
1) Most of these dishes can be made in 45 minutes or less, including prep. I may cook a lot, but it still takes me a while to prepare my mise en place.
2) Meat and vegetables. Occasionally starch/carbohydrate. Perfect and healthy.
3) Excellent size portions - some can be quite large, so a third portion can be saved for lunch during the workweek.
4) Many of the recipes use similar ingredients (carrots, onion, celery, etc.) and you can easily plan to make 3-4 meals to use up all the produce before it goes bad.
5) No dessert section. I'm so tired of cookbooks that claim to have so many recipes but 40 of them are for sugar-laden treats. Yay, actual food.
This book basically cooks meals like the ones I enjoy at my most frequented, favorite restaurants. The recipes are easy to follow, she offers little tips to increase the ease and for substitutions, and seriously, once you've heated the oil in the pan, delicious food meets your plate in minutes.
I really hope more books like this come to market.
I didn't believe in myself when it came to cooking and the best I could make would be a pile of spaghetti, MAYBE.
Now, I feel like a gourmet chef! I have promised myself I will cook this entire book. I can now make a killer red curry & delicious cauliflower risotto. I'm almost positive my boyfriend loves me a lot better now because I want to cook dinner every single night. Carla Snyder makes every instruction incredibly easy to understand and can make the simplest of ingredients taste like a gourmet meal. A lot of the recipes just use stuff that you would have in your fridge, like chicken breast, basil, cheese, etc. There's soooooo much variety, from so many different countries. What a beautiful book, it has really changed my life in the kitchen.
But, the recipes are delicious, easy to make and the instructions very easy to follow. I eat half and freeze the other half for later.
My husband and I aren't big eaters and have found the portions to more than enough. We typically have food left over. (maybe one more serving for a small eater) However, if you normally don't try to eat small portions, then I believe it to be adequate. Again, the book give suggestions for additions if you find the servings to be small for some of the recipes.
My favorite thus far has been the corn cakes. I've made this several times, including when we had guests over. I've doubled the recipe or added a side of meat when it's more than just the two of us. YUM.
The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that I prefer books that have pictures with every recipe. A small thing, but I like to be able to compare what I made to what it's suppose to look like!
So far I have done several of the steak and chicken recipes and a few others. I haven't tried any of the fish recipes yet.
While there are several ingredients that are needed that I had never heard of before using this book (as I am new to cooking) I have been able to find everything I need so far at Walmart.
The book calls for a 12 inch pan for most meals. I have been using my 10 inch pan and have not had any problems yet (had a little bit of an issue with the Hungarian goulash as it almost overflowed, but it turned out great).
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for some easy and delicious meals to add into their dinner lists.

BTW a properly managed heavy iron pan will be less sticky than tefal.
