Excellent results - even for a beginning chef
on November 24, 2004
I enjoy delicious, healthy foods but I have neither the time nor the will to cook every night.
Since I bought this book, I can't wait until I can try a new recipe. Each dish has prescribed preparation time broken down into actual hands-on prep time and oven time. This has simplified my life and allowed me to quickly change a menu at the last minute if I suddenly have less time to spend at the kitchen counter in the middle of my multi-tasking.
Even the recipes that I'm skeptical of turn out delicious and I find I'm craving some of the new taste combinations.
I've developed some health issues lately and this book makes me confident that I'm eating the best possible foods to help me get well.
I suppose the best thing to say about this book is that the work that goes into the recipes is well-rewarded with delicious meals.
Other recipe books are inconsistent but, with guaranteed success, I'm more prone to cook.
