From Publishers Weekly
Food Network darling Ray wants home cooks to become more "instinctual," and this assortment of quick meals is expansive enough to encourage even novices to wing it. The author hopes readers cook their way through the entire book; to that end, she organizes the recipes not by course or main ingredient (though there are indexes), but by number. The organization takes some getting used to. Helpful but occasionally jarring "tidbits" pop up everywhere, and many "recipes" make more than one dish, so cooking just one requires a fair amount of reading. For example, number 16 encompasses "Oregon-Style Pork Chops with Pinot Noir and Cranberries; Oregon Hash with Wild Mushrooms, Greens, Beets, Hazelnuts, and Blue Cheese; [and] Charred Whole-Grain Bread with Butter and Chives." Readers making just the hash must read around the instructions for the other two dishes. Still, the recipes are great. They vary in technique and ethnicity, and many give instructions on expanding the dish (after making Spicy Shrimp and Penne with Puttanesca Sauce, for example, "now try" omitting the olives and capers, swapping linguine for the penne, reducing the number of shrimp, and adding lump crab meat and mussels to make Frutti di Mare and Linguine). As Ray would say, "Yummo." (Nov.)

Here's the thing I have to remind the people who gave it a poor review: no where does this book claim to be budget friendly, low-fat, low-calorie, gourmet, sophisticated, easy, or anything but what it is - it is a cookbook with a wide variety of recipes for every day of the year.
***One important note, and I wish RR would say this in her recipes, I only found out by paying attention to her cooking show one day, when she calls for chorizo, she means Spanish chorizo, which is VERY different from Mexican chorizo. I don't think the two are interchangeable and the results could be bad. I can't find Spanish chorizo near my house (I'm in Portland, Oregon) so I substitute andouille or linguica.
You may need to improvise when you can't find some of the ingredients, but that's part of the fun of cooking - I can't stand bell peppers, so I will substitute sun-dried tomatoes or just leave the peppers out and I still find her recipes really good.
There are not a lot of photos in the book and I am glad for two reasons: more space devoted to recipes, and fewer resources used in printing shiny pages of color photos.
I have always "fixed dinner", but now I am really enjoying actually cooking. Even if I don't like some of the recipes, they are still fun to read and to pull information from. I used to look at recipes with a long list of ingredients and panic. Now I find that I have those things in my pantry as basics!
It is a fun and informative book.
