Top customer reviews
This book is simply beautiful. Filled with colorful and informative photos (there is a picture for every recipe), this book not only is great to look at but also gives good information for those of us who are competent but not particularly instinctive when it comes to cooking. I especially like the step by step photos so that I can get an idea of what the dish should look at while I am cooking it instead of just hoping it turns out like the finished product.
This book is organized by type of meal. With categories such as comfort food, soup for dinner, salad for dinner, breakfast for dinner, the book gives the reader a sense of the different possibilities for meals. There is also several sections on different types of side dishes and even desserts so readers can mix and match main dishes with the sides and desserts they like to make a complete meal.
I was especially pleased with the section on freezer meals. While basic and certainly not an attempt to be a treatise on the subject, this section gives readers the opportunity to prepare staples to keep frozen and then provides several different ways that those frozen staples can be used to make different meals. For example, the book provides a recipe for meatballs that can be frozen and then gives recipes for their use in sweet and sour meatballs, Swedish meatballs, etc. This section and the section on quick preparation meals are especially good for busy people who don't have hours to spend in the kitchen to prepare a dinner.
This book also has a great variety of recipes. There are recipes that are basic (especially good for picky eaters), meat and potatoes type recipes and then also recipes for more adventurous eaters. I appreciated the variety of recipes because nothing annoys me more than cooking books that are only for gourmet eaters.
Although titled Dinnertime, this book has such a great variety of recipes that they can be used all day long.
1-5) Game night! Buffalo Chicken Bites with Blue Cheese Dip – p 28, Potato Skins – p 36, Grilled Corn Dip – p 34, and Eight Layer Dip – p42. These were all really good, but the Buffalo Chicken Bites were outstanding! We’re enthusiastic dippers, and still had half the blue cheese dip left over, so I *had to* make the chicken again the next night to use it up. ;) My 16 year old was eating the chicken pretty competitively, and finished half the platter herself, so I’ll probably just double the chicken next time instead of halving the dip. The kids had never tried potato skins before and loved them! I adore it when Ree drops in retro food we’ve all long forgotten about. She gives a bunch of variations to try that all look really fun, too. I’d like a little more color on them, so I’ll leave them in the oven a smidge more next time before the cheese step.
6) Valentine’s Day! Bacon-Wrapped Filet – p 76, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes – p 78, and Cheddar-Bacon Wedge Salad – p 80. This is divine. There’s three full heads of sweet roasted garlic in those potatoes. It was supposed to be a romantic dinner for two, but my kids thought it would be much better for four. Yum! –My steaks took a bit longer than the 3 minutes in the recipe to hit 130° (medium rare) on the thermometer.
7) Easter! Sigrid’s Carrot Cake – p 110. Delicious and fabulously moist! It’s one of those very retro casual bakes that make the holidays so much easier!
