Basic no photos
Regrettably I'm not impressed with this recipe book.
I like to have photos that show me the end product at least and there's none in here.
It's pretty boringly basic I'm sorry to say

If you want to eat processed, high carb meals this is for you. If you want good foods that are at least minimally healthy for you, take a hard pass.

Nope. I get that five ingredients isn't a lot, but if I wanted to read what one can do with pre-made foods I wouldn't be reading a cook book for RECIPES...

Not real recipes.

I found no « real » recipes in this book. I prefer following if needed made from scratch-type recipes. Not for me.

Only read if you have a slow cooker machine

I don't think I can make any of the recipes provided. It does not apply to everyone, only to people p.e. that have a slow cooker

Mislesding and useless to anyone looking for homemade cooking

This is a great example of the kinds of recipes I loathe. I'm not into this "can of" and "package of" stuff. It took conversing with a friend in Slovakia to learn those recipes are not accessible. Even if these recipes are US-based (or so it seems), the conversions at the beginning of the book are pointless since most of the recipes require you to buy a "package of" something. It's not a 5-ingredient recipe book just because you're ski

2.5 pretty easy but pretty obvious stars

I was hoping for something more along the lines of angel hair pasta, crushed tomatoes, garlic, sauteed mushrooms, shredded parmesan cheese recipes. Nothing too fancy, just simple healthy little things I can throw together in no time at all. These were more like things I remember my mother making...tuna, macaroni noodles, cream of mushroom soup, pepper, then parmesan cheese for a noodle casserole kinda stuff. Which is fine, especially if you can't cook or a

Five Ingredient Cookbook – This is my first book by this writer and I was not impressed. Many of the recipes quialigy as junk food. Too many have processed ingredients resulting in too much sugar, salt, fat and chemical addivtives.

Many of the “recipes” I found in this “book” I found in Ms. Abedi’s 5 Ingredient Recipes. So unless you spend a lot of time at McDonald’s and other fast food joints, you will not like these “recipes”.

I recommend looking on the Internet for the healthy versions. 1*

A good starting book

This is a great book for someone just starting out with cooking, say college student or recent graduate. The recipes are easy to read, easy to prepare and utilize easy to obtain ingredient. A good majority of the recipes do call for preprocessed items (ie cake mix) to keep the recipes under 5 ingredient. I was able to take away from new ideas from this book. But this is more of a beginner book.

Quick meals: 5 ingredients or less

Gee, what can I say: I enjoy reading cookbooks because I can read them and not gain any weight, while seeing what the recipes look like when done. Mrs. Scott s recipes are too dog gone good to pick any that are either the cat s meow, or so atrocious that you never want to ever eat them again.

Does any chef or cook ever make really bad food? Now I likely will while learning how to duplicate her technique..

Finally a recipe book with real food!

Great to find a recipe book for those of us with lives, those of us who are not into veggies we can't even spell, let alone find in our local store. I especially appreciate the slow cooker recipes. My slow cooker helps me keep my family fed while I'm busy cleaning house and/or actually caring for my family. Great recipes throughout with minimum ingredients. Well done.

You have made my day, night, and time in the kitchen so much better! I will continue to support ! This should be a gift to new wives and moms! Plus it’s an affordable and helpful gift !

Slow cooking for a fast life

I enjoyed all of these recipes. I have most all of the ingredients in my pantry. Can't wait to try them on hubby. Slow cookers are good for me since I suffer acute back pain and cannot stand over a stove for hours to cook a meal. I would recommend this book to all my friends.

I only rated this is a 4* on account of there were no pictures but the recipes were simple, easy to follow. They also mostly had ingredients that most people have in their cupboards! Did try 6 of them and they were good, quick, easy to follow and my family enjoyed them! Pictures would have made the recipes more appetizing!

So far so good

I have tried a pork chop crock dinner, it was well received. I am making peach cobbler now, it looks and smells great. I am not a cook, I don't have the gene for it. My mother wasn't much better. I don't enjoy cooking and am a super fan of the crock pot.
I need easy recipes without many Ingredients plus little prep time. This book affords me simple ways to provide tasty dinners and deserts. The ingredients are normal everyday supplies. Martha might turn up her nose but I am sold.

I actually thought I had downloaded a chicken recipe book by accident at first. It seems like the majority of the recipes are involve chicken. Also seems like cheating if one of the five ingredients are something premade.

I think my favorite part was the recipe for scrambled eggs. lolz.

Easy, easy, easy

Nicely written cookbook. I bookmarked several easy, fast-prep recipes to try. I'm especially excited to try the slow cooker bread pudding recipe as well as the easy powdered sugar donuts.

Easy to follow with few ingredients. That is the kind of recipes i like. I would recommend to to friends.

Easy to follow instructions. I like that it only takes thirty minutes or less. Has niece colored pictures in it.

I love to eat so I would look at cookbooks somethings or maybe cook it too. This cookbooks is very good because it only contains 5 or less ingredients in a recipe, and it is easy to cook. I really recommend people who like to cook to read this book.

All to easy recipes

Holy cow, these recipes are fast and easy to make in the crock pot. Went through the ebook but nothing seemed to hinder taste to my boyfriend. He likes to try new foods.

Not suitable

Too many over sweetened recipes as well as using too many processed and American products that are not available in Australia.

Basic recipes

Most recipes keep to the five ingredient rule by using various premade items, like bottled dressings and sauces. Great for a beginner basic cook.

Basic recipes and not all from scratch. Mixing pre-made sauces and canned foods isn't what I'm after. There are no photos to show the finished results.

I like the idea of 5 ingredient recipes and found myself book marking many recipes. And the all seem very easy and not very time consuming.

As a South African epic fail

we don't get most of your ingredients in our shops. We would have to make the items first and then move on to making the items
