Some good recipes. However, the author is still stuck on the failed low fat diet, which is high in sugar. Fat is not the enemy. We need good fats. Sugar is the real enemy. I don't recommend this cookbook.
I thought I was getting Jamie Oliver's book that goes along with his TV series, 5 ingredients Quick and Easy. Jamie's is based on a few ingredients you have in your pantry-olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, sea salt and black pepper, plus 5 other main ingredients that include herbs and special seasonings as a main ingredient. However Ms. Thigpen's states that her 5 main ingredients do not count seasoning and standard flavor enhancers or herbs. For example the Italian Grilled Cheese Panini, the ingredients are red bell peppers, garlic cloves, EVVO, mayonnaise, sourdough bread, mozzarella cheese, artichoke hearts, salt and pepper. I'm not sure what is considered a flavor enhancer or herb for this one. However, it does seem fairly easy to make and quick to cook. I would assume that mayonnaise is considered a staple? And does everyone keep garlic cloves on hand? Anyway, I'll keep the book and try a few of the recipes because for the most part they do look pretty easy. I'm just very disappointed that it is such a take off on Jamie Oliver's book. I should read the fine print more closely.
