What do I find helpful is that most of the dishes I have created so far don't require ingredients I haven't been able to find. I have read reviews that some found some of the recipes spices, I am not one for overly spices food and again the recipes are not that for me. However, if the use of a particular spice is too much for ones liking eliminate it.
My family member doesn't really care for "spice" and I made the Cajun rubbed pork chop yesterday and it called for 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper so I used 1/8 tsp. I will come back and do an update this review once I have made at least 5 or 6 more dishes.
So to the question of whether it is indeed family-friendly, I can say unequivocally that it is. Is it simple? Yep, it's that, too. The recipes in the book are organized by the amount of time it takes to make them, and so far, each of the recipes I've tried fits into its time category quite neatly. As an experienced cook, I'm coming in right at the fastest window of time Mary has specified in the book. The categories are 15 - 25 minute meals, 30 - 45 minute meals, and 5 - 10 minute prep meals which have added cooking time, but only require the specified amount of hands-on time. This makes time management in the kitchen a piece of Lemon Lover's Pound Cake, folks.
I've ordered copies for Christmas for some of my busy mama friends already. I think I am going to pop a few more in my cart for my friends who work like crazy but still want to eat home cooked meals from real, whole foods as often as possible. Oh! That's the other thing I really wanted to mention; this book doesn't use pre-made mixes or a bunch of processed ingredients. It is all from scratch, including the spice blends she includes in the book as a bonus. This makes my heart so happy! I can cook from scratch "as simply as possible" -as the back of the book says- and still make my mouth, wallet, and stomach happy. You'll be so happy to have this one in your kitchen. I know I am!
Now- This book.. I really am pleasantly surprised. It’s got all kinds of very different brand new recipes in there that you don’t see in other cookbooks. Inspiration! Dishes I’ve never made that actually sound pretty good and they’re quick! I love how the book is broken up by prep times. It really does have some pretty different, quick, and new recipes in there that I am excited to try.
My opinion- Not at all a waste of money. Very interesting recipes that all look delicious that I can’t wait to try. Get this book.
