UPDATE: A year later - Everything I cook from this book has made it on to my regular rotation. The Indian curries are divine (and use easy to find good quality curry paste which JO recommends), the meatloaf - although assembly requires some work - is a thing of beauty, the burgers, the beef chili, the chicken fajitas, the sauces, honestly absolutely everything! has been delicious and reheats beautifully. Only one iffy dish (pasta with baked seasoned brie) and that might have been more due to the quality of my brie. Not all of the recipes are speedy (there is a section for quick recipes and they're splendid) but they're all well-laid out and easy to follow and every single one has turned out the kind of food that a year later makes people jump in their car for my LEFTOVERS. You heard me.
The recipes inside didn't quite do it for me, I mean it's not my kind of food or comfort food I'm used to and want to eat.
It is well explained but I like simple, not too many ingredients type of recipes.
So I'll just stick with finding simple recipes online and print them.
There's nothing wrong with it but I returned it.
My Rating: 5 stars
