HASH(0xa47fa0f0) out of 5 stars smart and simple Nov. 16 2008
By t boss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first cook book that has ever made sense to me. im a single guy and I actually have a job and don't have 12 hours to prepare a meal, especially before a date. i don't mind spending some money getting a meal together but i DONT want to spend alot of time. and i still want it to be cool. this cook book is awesome!! really straight forward, really fast, and everything came out great. it was hard to screw up the recipes which is good since when you are getting ready for a date, you kind of want to be as close to idiot-proof as possible. this is the most practical cook book ever

HASH(0xa47fa144) out of 5 stars Not exactly what I expected Dec 16 2009
By Kimberly - Published on Amazon.com
After seeing some of the 5-star reviews and seeing some of the recipes listed, I was excited to try this book. After looking through page after page of recipes, I found maybe 3 that I thought sounded tasty. Not impressed. This is one of those books that heavily incorporates pre-packaged foods, by brand name, to save cooking time. Many of those prepackaged items aren't to be found at my local big-box or even specialty markets. How much time am I really saving trying to track down the brands that Rocco recommends? And how healthy can it be if the recipes call for canned, frozen, or boxed ingredients rather than fresh? If you want fast and healthy, pick up a Tyler Florence book. He knows how to do it without pimping for the food companies and t.v. shows that he's involved with.

HASH(0xa47fa4f8) out of 5 stars Cooking Gets Real Feb. 18 2009
By Elinor Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have not tried every recipe in the book, but when I have, the results ranged from bad diner food to mediocre at best. My first Rocco book, and oh my last. The book has the flavor of a let's-throw-this-together project. For instance, Rocco's initial claim is that none of the recipes in the book (dated 2008) costs more than $7.00 to serve four people. I live near a large city and my local markets sell Rocco's specification of filet mignon for $19.95 a pound. That's for starters. Add the other ingredients in the dish and you'll be spending considerably more than $25.00 per recipe. A careful author would not have let this happen. Other aspects of the book include poor photography and even worse graphics. Some pages are quite difficult to read - thin white lettering upon red ink.

All this said, I think that the illustrations regarding cookware are neat and simple and could be helpful.

What would I have wanted to know before I purchased this product? That the criticisms of the previous book were correct, and Rocco, adorable as he is, may or may not know how to cook.

HASH(0xa47fa564) out of 5 stars Where do you get the ingredients? Jan. 9 2009
By Nancy Jane Weikel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this book for Christmas and was very excited. My problem is where do you get some of the ingredients? The average grocery store does not carry specialty items. I was also surprised by how many jarred sauces are used. I like to make my own. I love the show but I am VERY disappointed in the book.

HASH(0xa47faa2c) out of 5 stars Rocco's a little gourmet for me in this cookbook May 9 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was a little disappointed in this cookbook compared to the comfort cookbook. Rocco is wonderful, but this cookbook is a little too gourmet for me in this one. I like wholesome food and not fancy foods. This one fell short of my expectations. But for someone who likes to cook this way, then it's great for them.
