the only reason this isn't getting 5 stars from me right now is that i haven't cooked from it yet -- i will update once i've tried a few recipes. but it is a delight to read; well organized, beautiful layout, lovely photographs, very clear instructions, time for prep and cooking given for all recipes. it has both imperial and metric measurements, which is always a major plus for me. the recipes mostly use common ingredients yet are inventive in the use of combinations and spicing, well, inventiv ...more

I made a pasta dish, though seasoned in a way I have not had before. Living with an Italian, I love trying any new pasta dishes I can find, and this suited my tastes.
I'm so glad I tried it.
The chicken flavor with the cheese tortellini is really delicious. I am so surprised not only that I like it, but my the brood loves it too!
And here, I was worried it would end up in the dog's bowl.
I am sure to use this cookbook quite often, and see what other surprises I can find.
My goodness, this is a behemoth of a cookbook. It's beautifully put together, though, and after post-it-noting several recipes from my library copy, I felt obligated to buy it.

Recipes are nicely organized (chicken, slow cooker), the directions are clear, and the photographs are gorgeous. Lots of additional info about how to prepare food.

Haven't tried enough of the recipes to give it a 5.

This is our absolute favorite cookbook. It's our go-to when we plan our menus because of the great pictures, the restaurant-style menu browser in the front, and because the recipes are either really quick or savable in large batches. Without this book we would not have been able to stick with our resolution to eat at home more often!

This is quite literally a tome of information. Well laid out, gorgeous pictures, sectioned into different categories like no-cook meals, meals for large groups, salmon dishes, vegetarian, etc. One of my most well used books. It has great suggestions for quick weeknight dishes and gets you in and out of the kitchen in no time.
I want this cookbook- lots of pictures with almost every recipe. Some recipes call for things that you wouldnt' normally have on-hand, but they are unique, different and truly appear to be pretty easy (according to the directions). I need to get on amazon and search for this book!
Love this book. I read a borrowed copy but will definitely be making a copy mine soon!
