Fast, simple, and really great meals for real people-from Sam the Cooking Guy
On his popular television show, Sam Zien shows regular people how to make great meals that are long on taste and short on effort. Sam might not be Michelin rated, but his refreshing approach to cooking with basic ingredients, simple techniques, and equipment almost everyone has at hand makes cooking simple, fun, and satisfying. There's no foie gras, truffle oil, or papillote involved and it doesn't matter if you can't spell "hors d'oeuvre." There are no fancy techniques or rare ingredients here, just great tasting food that anyone can make.
Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts makes it even easier with simple tricks for preparing great meals on the fly. Turn a roast chicken from the corner deli into a fake pulled pork sandwich. Keep pre-cooked pasta in the freezer and bust out a tub of pre-made pesto for an instant Italian meal.
- Packed with simple cooking shortcuts that make great-tasting food simple-turn leftover roast beef into Shepherd's Pie or last night's French fries into this morning's Breakfast Burrito
- Includes shockingly good recipes like Cap'n Crunch Seared Tuna, Sam's Mexican Meatloaf, Blue Cheese Gnocchi with Bacon, and Pi?a Colada Pancakes!
- Based on simple ways to use easy-to-find ingredients, leftovers, and stuff that's in almost everyone's pantry
- Written by Sam Zien, host of the popular cooking show "Sam the Cooking Guy" and author of Sam the Cooking Guy: Just a Bunch of Recipes
Keep it real and real simple with Sam's Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts.

For the busy people out there who want something better than Spaghetti and Lipton rice packets comes Same the Cooking Guy to help us learn how to cook on the fly.
In Sam the Cooking Guy: Awesome Recipes & Kitchen Shortcuts, Sam Zien re-teaches us how to think about frozen foods, leftovers, and saving time in the kitchen, while eating good, fun, palate-pleasing food.
Many recipes in this book only call for 5 or less ingredients, which are simple and affordable. However, the end result is amazing. For instance, do you think Pesto, Shrimp, and White Bean Soup will take all day to make? Think again. This recipe takes just 10-15 minutes to prepare and calls for only 4 ingredients!
Forget the prep work and order this cookbook. You are sure to learn a few things and who knows, your quality of life might even improve a little
Thanks to Sam I can always find something to cook. On another note, I love Sam's witty personality and commentary.
