Love reading different cook books with my younger daughter .we always cook and bake together and my oldest always says she is the taste tester .

The Good Stuff

Nice addition to have the "Rounding out the Meal' & "Kitchen Note" added to some of the recipes. Extremely helpful
Photographs are simple, yet beautiful, and very, very appetizing (Take note publishers of cookbooks - people want to have pictures of every recipe and pictures that focuse on the food not on the artistry of the photographer)
Directions are easy to follow
Something for everyone - lots of variety
Lots of fresh ingredients that are easy to find in any grocery store

When a cookbook goes beyond the “template” and gets creative, it’s refreshing. This is exactly what Curtis Stone has done in his new cookbook What’s For Dinner. Dividing the recipes into different days of the week makes it easy to plan and decide what to make for dinner. If you follow the book, you’re basically set for at least ten weeks – that means ten week
Simple recipes? No. I have, if I may say so, a pretty impressive pantry, but there is hardly one recipe that I wouldn't have to buy something (not counting main protein). Fresh herbs are featured heavily, as are peppers and...sriracha, harissa, Vietnamese fish sauce. Other recipes have just odd combinations for me. And NO nutritional information. Simple may mean limited ingredients. May mean limited pots and pans. Not sure. It certainly doesn't mean quick cooking times or prep times.
Borrowed the book from the library 1st to make sure it was good... then bought it! Most of the recipes I have cooked so far have been really good. The recipes have been easy to follow. The portions are large so at times I have halved it.

Recommended recipes:-

grilled salmon with risoni, feta and red wine vinaigrette (great way to cook the fish too)
grilled prawn and rice noodle salad (husband's fav!)
cauliflower and spinach dahl
quinoa salad with chickpea and tomatoes
chocolate chunk cookies with peca
I liked the Saturday chapter the best, though nothing seemed particularly inspiring to me. The dessert chapter was ho-hum, though I didn't expect much in the first place in terms of awe-inspiring desserts.
I love this cookbook! It's organized by day of the week (one pot dinners, under 30 minute dinners, etc.) instead of by type of food. I have made several dishes and they are all great!
This book is probably the best-organized cookbook I've checked out in ages! The weekend chapters were a little too involved for me, but the five weeknight chapters had lots of easy meals that were suitable for kids and adults. Prep time is pretty accurate (and included); he includes sidebars for anything unusual and covers variations if you're interested. I wish more books included nutrition information - this one isn't appalling, but it would be useful. This is a really great cookbook for every ...more
Curtis Stone's newest cookbook is full of all sorts of delicious recipes made all the better because most are easy to make with few ingredients. Only his weekend recipes take more time. I'm looking forward to trying many of them.
Most of the recipes in this book are too time consuming for me, but on the days that I have more time to cook I am eager to try some of these recipes. I like that they are all so different from each other, and pretty easy to execute.

Love the variety of recipes, and the different categories cover a wide range of occasions. I bookmarked nearly the entire book. Beautiful pictures for every recipe as well!

the recipe we tried was ok, not awesomeness like I thought it would be, have to try another one to see if it was me or just the recipe.
Another beautifully photographed book full of delicious looking food. Can someone make me everything in here?
Really liked this! Lots of great and easy recipes that I can't wait to try!
