5 Stars great tasting dishes for every night of the week
I love the Eating Well magazine and cookbook – but most of those recipes are too time consuming to do after work during the week. Here is the answer – great tasting dishes for any night of the week.
5 Stars excellent service; very good book
Checked out this book from public library and knew I had to have it. Highly recommend.
5 Stars Great cookbook!
I love this book! I recently checked it out from the library, but there are so many good recipes, I’m buying it today. Healthy (and tasty) recipes without too many ingredients that can be prepared in under 40 minutes.
5 Stars Great food fast doesn’t have to be from a drive-thru
This book provides good food fast without the need of a drive-thru dinner. I have made many of these dishes and enjoyed sharing them with my family. The kids love the taste as much as we do!
5 Stars not afraid to cook anymore
I wouldn’t say I was an inexperienced cook . . . I’d say phobic. No, this might not be the cookbook for you if you’re quite the gourmet and enjoy spending an hour or more in the kitchen to prepare a meal. But if you were never really taught how to cook and have spent most nights asking your partner, “Well, what do you want to do for dinner?” back and forth until someone orders delivery, then this might be just what you need.
I love this book and its companion, EatingWell Serves Two. I seem to have two types of cookbooks: healthy (such as the Mayo Clinic) and quick/easy (as in cookbooks that advertise how few ingredients each recipe will use). EatingWell’s Hurry cookbooks are the only ones that combine both.
It’s been a learning process for me. Sometimes I need to google ingredients (what are fennel seeds? Where will they be in the grocery store? What’s a plum tomato?) or get new equipment (Where’s the broiler pan? Oh, oops, I guess we don’t have one), but that’s a joy, because as I do these things step by step I know I am gaining knowledge and experience (and gear and ingredients).
So let’s face it; if I can do these recipes, then they are easy enough to be in some kind of cooking for dummies cookbook, and yet they are super tasty and I’m not embarrassed to serve them, even to people who aren’t married to me.
If I could be in an infomercial for these cookbooks I would. In my late 20’s it was finally time for me to learn how to cook (and force myself to do it more than once a week), and I don’t think I could have done it without these cookbooks.
