This cookbook delivers8 juin 2010

I managed to find a copy of this cookbook after seeing it on a bookshelf. It appeared to be a lot more practical than something like Rachael Ray's cookbook offerings, so I decided to buy a copy and try it out. This book has exceeded my expectations.
One of the common problems with cookbooks like this is that they use uncommon ingredients that you typically do not have on hand or cannot find at a regular grocery store. This is not the case with this particular book; most recipes call for commonly available ingedients or are ingredients that you can easily find at almost any grocery store. This is a big plus, as it means that you don't have to write off a number of recipes like with other cookbooks.
One of the selling points of a cookbook like this is that the recipes can be prepared quickly and easily. This is indeed the case, at least with the recipes I have tried. "Spend 30 minutes or less in the kitchen" (as specified on the cover) isn't quite the case for me, though I definitely have successfully spent less than an hour preparing meals from this book. To be fair, I have found that most 30-minute recipes take me 45-60 minutes, but I attribute this to my being a little disorganized and probably too meticulous in my preparations.
So far, the meals I have prepared from this book have been flavorful and a big hit with the family.
I appreciate a cookbook that includes pictures with the recipes and this cookbook has a lot of pictures. There is probably a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio of recipes to pictures. And for me, so far, the end result of following the recipes looks just like the pictures.
This is likely going to be one of the cookbooks I use most, as it provides me a good collection of practical recipes that can be prepped in a relatively short amount of time with ingredients I have on hand. If you need a cookbook that has easy-to-prepare recipes that use common ingredients and have flavor, and you can find a copy of this this cookbook, grab it.
