I do substitute a lot of pre-packaged items with fresh items, but I love the recipes more than I do that they are fast and easy. I just love how they are put together and that they taste great. And just because I choose to cook my own sweet potatoes rather than buy canned, or that I shred my own cheese, etc, doesn't mean that there aren't times I don't take advantage of the convience foods on the market today. There are times I don't want to cook but still have a family to feed anyway.
We can easily sub fresh ingredients over pre-packaged if that is a concern, but the recipes are great, the photos even better and the lay out is as good as it gets.
I will forever buy her books as long as the quality doesn't change.
This book seems to be the answer. Both my wife and I work consantly and have kids to raise, so a 20-30 minute meal is a practical approach to better cooking.
My first first tasty dish I cooked this evening was Sandra's "Carribbean Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili." It both looks great and tastes delicious. And yes, it took about 20 minutes to prepare. In fact, it took longer to find the ingredients in the store than it did to actually cook it. It was a delicious alternative to the standard chili I've been making for years. I would have never thought to make chili with a can of sweet potatoes, mango nectar juice, and bleak peas! Served and eaten along side a pan of hot cornbread, it made a great first meal from this book.
Now my kids weren't too crazy about it, but my 9 year-old daughter did picked up the book and point out meals she wanted to try.
Semi-Homemade 20-Minute Meals is well designed, easy to follow cookbook for non-cooking people like myself.

names of products she used. Some products, of course, are not available in our area, but does give an
idea of what to look for. Photos of the finished recipe so you can tell how it should turn out which are well
done. All in all a great go to cookbook.
