I found Robin Miller and her cookbooks some time ago and used to tape the shows on the DVR. I like her and this cookbook is not one of my favorites but there were some decent recipes that appear easy and tasty and as the title suggests... Quick Fix!

Whenever I buy a book (ie cookbook) it is usually based on a decision from taking out library books to pass my test. In the past I had bought / collected cookbooks with hundreds of recipes where maybe 5-6 recipes were recipes that I would try. Theref

I don't usually buy cookbooks any more. My library has shelves of great cookbooks, so I typically check out a book or two and see what good recipes are in it. I find 2-3 recipes I like, copy them and put the book back. This book is now overdue from the library and I definitely want my own copy! There are several fantastic quick-fix ideas. It still requires prep work but a lot of it can be done 3 days to a week ahead. It makes hectic week nights gratifying and satisfying to know that you can have ...more

I love Robin Miller's show on the Food Network, but I didn't like the cookbook quite as much. There were some great recipes, but I have a thing for pictures and there weren't many. I like to see what I'm making. I did like the advice on prepping the meals ahead of time and then the instructions on how to assemble everything so dinner takes the least amount of time. I wish other cookbooks would include similar suggestions for their recipes.

I am at work two and a half days a week, and when I get home I do not want to spend another hour and a half getting dinner ready. I read Quick Fix Meals in hopes of further streamlining the dinner making process so I can have more time to do things I enjoy like read to the kids.

I tried several of the recipes and some were not as good as they sounded (like “Artichoke-Steak Melts with Smoked Provolone and Basil Mayo”) but most were quite good (like “Coconut-Lime Chicken with Chiles”). They really

I love her style, but not her food combos. Or I should say, my kids won't eat her combos. Some sounded interesting. Maybe revisit when kids are older?

Recommends it for: beginning or busy cooks
I loved this book so much that I bought copies for my brothers.

The real jewel was the section of 'cook your meat now, cut before storing, use it for other meals in the next few days' recipe sets. These recipes frontload the preparation into one cooking session, but get around the monotony of huge amounts of leftovers.

Robin's instructions are easy to understand for non-cooks, and she even includes useful directions for how best to refrigerate or freeze the results.

Love this book. All the recipes I have made from it have been winners. I like that there are so many time-saving techniques in it, too. Much appreciated from this busy mom.

It's not technically fair for a vegetarian to be reading non-veg cookbooks and expecting much, but I often find a good cookbook will at least give me some new ideas that I can tweak. This is not one of those books. I felt like I was reading a book written twenty years ago somehow. The recipes seemed very same old, same old.

Love this cookbook. Robin has a great concept of cooking one meal and morphing the leftovers into something different. I've made many recipes from this book and they are all delicious. Plus, I got to meet Robin at a cooking demo/book signing in Scottsdale, AZ and she seems just as nice as she does on her show.

Love the three meal prep concepts she presents to get meals to the table quicker. There were some great new recipes, some classics with a twist... and some that are too gourmet-ish I don't ever see myself making. I'm not familiar with her Food Network show.

The recipes looked okay, I just really didn't enjoy the format of this cookbook. I prefer a lot more pictures and for them to be with the recipe, not just in the middle.

Right now I am collecting more for the autographs than actually cooking from them! :) Have autographed bookplate and autographed picture.

I have tried several recipies and like it. The cashew chicken was good, but blandish. Good for cooking with kids.

I liked the cook book but as a vegetarian there were only a few recipes that I won't have to alter.
