Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Television celebrity chef Stone has compiled a book of recipes covering each night of the week. Monday kicks off with healthy dishes based on chicken and fish. Wednesday brings one-pot meals out of the kitchen. By Friday, recipes limit themselves to just five ingredients, yielding a simple homemade pizza or spaghetti with lemon, garlic, pine nuts, and kale. Saturday nights mean entertaining, so Stone celebrates with grilled lobster and bacon marmalade. The chef’s family Sunday-supper menus feature impressive dishes, such as steak and mushroom “cobbler” topped with cheese biscuits. Recipes traverse all sorts of culinary traditions. From Mexico, a roast chicken stews in tomatillos for a lovely green filling for tacos. Stone makes chicken French with fennel-spiked white beans in a rudimentary sort of cassoulet. America’s South contributes a long-cooked and satisfying mess of pork and greens. Cooks looking for new ideas will find plenty to inspire here. --Mark Knoblauch

Curtis Stone never disappoints with his inviting cookbooks, and this one is another gem. He delivers several, simple recipes for 7 days a week, and many are great for those special occasions. These mouth-watering recipes include:Different variety of cooked chicken; grilled shrimp; spareribs; steak; scallops; and much more to choose from. There are many vegetable recipes, salads, and delicious desserts. In addition, the healthy recipes given are on a friendly budget, and the author provides time-saving advice, and tips. There is something for everyone in the comfort food selection, and stunning, colorful photos. I had my eyes on the Crab-Cakes and Grilled Shrimp immediately. The recipes are easy-to-prepare, and there are enough choices for different meals the entire week. The author makes it easy to plan the meals, with recipes that are not time consuming for this busy world we live in. Curtis Stone makes it fun-filled and enjoyable for social gatherings, and family dinners. The desserts make you want to dive right in, along with the tempting photos. Recently, we tried the Fettuccine With Shrimp And Fresh Tomato Sauce, absolutely delicious! In addition: We tried the Bacon, Corn, And Potato Chowder for a hearty lunch,and were very satisfied. The Chocolate Bread Pudding was also a big hit, and I will make that again. Thus far, our favorite dessert is Bittersweet Chocolate -Mint Mousse. My daughter loved it. There are many more dinners and desserts for me to try. I'm anxious to try the New York Cherry Cheesecake, which is next on our list for desserts. The choice for our next dinner will be Grilled Shrimp And Rice Noodle Salad. The stunning, colorful photo of this selection makes you hungry. My conclusions thus far: A fantastic, exciting, and informative cookbook! A delightful, gift idea for any cook. Highly recommended!

The very night before Mr.Curtis Stone was on the Today morning show telling about his new cook book, I was talking to my husband in bed about how I'm so sick of having anxiety about our: nutrition, inventive dishes, budget friendly groceries etc. The whole deal. I was so sick to death of thinking about food (every day all day long)
Bottom line.... it's my responsibility to choose tasty, healthy, new dishes 365 days of the year for our whole family.
When I saw the simplicity of Mr.Stone's dishes & the quick time to make them, I immediately jumped on Amazon & bought the book before it even came out.There's so many dishes that are good for you, vibrant, tasty, quick to cook.
There's a menu for the whole week- bam!! already thought of... The cook book is awesome!!

This book was a little disappointing to me. I think he is a great chef. The recipes were not as simple or easy to prepare as the book suggests. Several of the recipes are just fine but the majority are not simple. Remember this is just a personal opinon from a working woman. I purchased two and gave one as a gift. the other lady feels the same way.

I love this book! I have tried at least 5 of the recipes so far, and all of them have come out looking like the picture. The directions are easy to follow and I also love that the whole thing is just dinner suggestions, as I am a working parent who is always scrambling when I get home. I highly recommend this book at it has a lot of choices and great variety.

I tried one of Curtis' recipes that I found on Epicurious- it was great and it led me to purchasing this book. In the first week, I have made the cider glazed pork chops, bacon and potato chowder, kale spaghetti and the bangers and mash. They were all wonderful and tasted as good as the pictures looked! My family has enjoyed all the recipes. The recipes are simple to prepare. I like how the book is organized into days of the week. He also includes a fair amount of vegetarian recipes. I am looking forward to summer when I can try all his recipes on the grill.

I own a lot of cookbooks and I use this one by far the most. (To give a sampling of other cookbooks I use and like - almost anything Barefoot Contessa, America's Test Kitchen, and the old standby Betty Crocker) The recipes are all really fresh and interesting. I would say I would make at least 95% of the recipes. There are a few proteins in here that I will likely never make, but overall I love everything in this book. Most of the recipes are not time intensive and use very simple ingredients in new ways.

One of my favorite recipes is the Korean BBQ tacos. These are awesome along with his guacamole recipe. I have young kids (2.5 and 4.5) and they have loved everything I've made out of this cookbook as well. Prior to owning this book, I had never really made any of his recipes, but I am definitely going to check out his other books. I would not say that we are adventurous eaters, but I've always made my kids the same foods as I make for my husband and myself. I would recommend this book to anyone!

The book is separated in to eight different segments. The end of each chapter includes a drink/cocktail recipe - also all of which I would love to try!
