Recommended for: neophyte cooks who need simple recipes for after work dinner
Read in January, 2009

Although several recipes claim that they will take no time, there is some serious prep time for those of us who cannot handle a knife like a person on Top Chef. For instance, Spicy Shrimp requires 4 cloves of garlic thinly sliced. Well it took me close to 20 minutes to cut two cloves of garlic, peel the skin and then dice and slice, but given that the closest I ever came to a clove was in a crossword, I though the prep time was worth it as the food came out pretty good.

The recipes seem fairly straight forward, and if I can cook them then you have to give him high marks.
