This is not a book that I would necessarily buy, but I gave it a middling review, because it is average. It's not healthy (as noted by other reviewers), but the recipes can be modified to be healthier, if you're experienced and knowledgeable enough to make the changes yourself...but even then, it's trial and error. This book just isn't great, in terms of health or variety of recipes, but it does have some 'quick options'. The entire dessert section is full of 'quickies' (nothing else). But there are few to no breakfast recipes, dips/snacks/spreads, or other recipes. It just isn't a great read.

The only thing that is good about it is that they provide pictures for each recipe. It is the only thing that I think would sell this book...but then you're bound to be disappointed, because when you start to read, the recipes just don't add up to the beautiful pictures. Nothing is particularly appetizing or great. And there are few to no vegetarian options. Not something I would recommend highly. If you're new to the kitchen, it may provide you with some quick ,easy, basic recipes. But this book is like a poor cousin of others of its ilk....if you're considering this book, I would suggest, instead:

Weight Watcher's New Complete Cookbook
(it doesn't sound appetizing, but it's amazing, full of a wide variety of healthy, easy, appetizing recipes, and great pictures, and it's all in a neat binder, so you can place your favorites at the front of the book).


Just my opinion. Bon appetit!

I got this from the library and loved the recipes so bought it. Simple and tasty. Watch the carbonara recipe... so tasty but calorie-ific!

I found this cook book had a lot of interesting recipes. However, after reading through the recipes and seeing the calories and fat in each recipe I know I will not be making any. With everyone trying to eat healthier I was surprised by this cook book. I lent the book to a friend and she gave it back to me with the same review. A disappointed buy. It will be going to my garage sale.

I love Food Network Magazine so I was super excited when I saw this cook book was coming out. I knew I had to add it to my collection. I just received it today and could not be happier.
I have to admit I'm a sucker for cookbooks with pictures. This one does not disappoint. There is a picture for every recipe. I'm excited to try the recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes All in one place! March 18 2011
By Lacy Carra - Published on Amazon.com
I've subscribed to food network magazine since they put out the first issue. All my magazines are folded and splattered and just plain used and abused. Now i have a great collection of the recipes, not all but a bunch of them in one place. I love it. I think that they are easy and made with ingredients that aren't hard to find. I really enjoy this cookbook and recommend it to anyone who loves food network, FN Magazine. Or any of the great chefs that are apart of FN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a Winner March 31 2011
By Super Holla! - Published on Amazon.com
I can't say enough good things about Food Network Magazine. I've been subscribing for nearly two years just so I can get my hands on the Weeknight Cooking section. I had been pondering the idea of cutting the sections out of my overgrown collection of FNM's but now I don't have to. SO SO happy they've turned this helpful and delicious magazine section into ONE handy cookbook!! Thanks so much to the folks there!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Easy Meals (Hyperion) April 28 2011
By BlogOnBooks - Published on Amazon.com
First, it was a network, then it was a magazine and well, what's the next step? A cookbook, of course. No worries, despite it massive popularity, the Food Network (magazine) has actually delivered a handy, really usable, cookbook to satisfy all those readers who (according to the book at least) are emailing the magazine like mad for easy to make dinner recipes. (It helps to have a cable network, we suppose.) In any event, the book is filled with 250 single page with accompanying full color photo pages of each scrumptious looking recipe and while the meals look `easy', they are also sophisticated enough to keep people entertained beyond the run of the mill fare. Using the basic staples - beef, fish, chicken - the book's value comes in the accoutrements that accompany each dish - a salad, a garnish or a few, carefully selected ingredients that top of an otherwise predictable dish. If pictures and ease of use are what make a good cookbook these days, the Food Network magazine's "Great Easy Meals" delivers. Now, if this book was turned into a home video, even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious/Inspirational Aug. 9 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
My husband bought this book about 2 months ago & we have tried recipes almost every night since...even while camping. All of the recipes have been delicious. We love the mix of fresh ingredients (especially since we have a large garden), yet nothing is complicated. This book helps to have an amazingly quick, delicious dinner! It is definitely our favorite and inspirational meal planning source. I will be giving this book as gifts to the food lovers I know. To be completely honest, I have found a few errors in the instructions, but nothing serious.
