Hamburger Helper - your ubiquitous presence in my childhood taught me that one-dish meals were awesome. As I got older, I grew to know that it could be better. Much better.

The people behind Cook's Illustrated once again take their expertise and thoroughness in recipe testing and apply it to dishes that I think would be great for people with limited kitchen space, or for beginning cooks that don't want to keep track of three pots on the stove and two dishes in the oven. A good 12-inch ovenproof s

I expected this book to contain many new recipes than 'The Best Recipes,' which I already own. From that perspective, it did not wow me. I tried a pasta recipe, and it turned out fine, but given that I own more than I skillet, I would rather shorten the cooking time by boiling the pasta while I'm making the sauce, rather than making a wetter sauce and cooking the pasta in it afterwards. Like other Cook's Illustrated books, it is well written, but this will not find a permanent place on my booksh ...more

This was a gift from a dear friend. I have tried many of the recipes and so far, I have not found one that I did not like. Relatively easy-to-make recipes with illustrations and color photos. One thing that I like about this book is the information that precedes many recipes...the whys and hows the authors developed the recipes that follow.

So far, my family has rated everything that I have made from this book as "do again"...believe me, not something that happens all the time.

I especially love

The Cook's Illustrated cookbooks are among my favorites; they are not merely a collection of recipes. They explain the why and how (and the failures!) of recipes, focusing on how to make the best of the best..and they succeed. Good food, good recipes, good directions. Good book.

These recipes look and sound so amazing that I can't wait to try some! For the most part, the ingredients and directions are simple. Not many color pictures but terrific tips and tool/ingredient suggestions.

Who wouldn't want to make an entire meal in one pan?
Everything I've made from this book was yummy and we have a new favorite pasta recipe in our rotation now. I love that you can cook pasta in one pan without dragging out another saucepan and colander that have to be cleaned later.

Cooks Illustrated recipes are almost always perfect. This cookbook is fun to cook out of, my only complaints are 1) meat-city! and 2) not for the calorie-conscious.

I found the writing style and selection of recipes to be rather dull.
