5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, Easy, Affordable Deliciousness!
Reviewed in the United States on 23 September 2015
What a lovely cookbook! First and foremost, for me, a cookbook has to *look* delicious. A cookbook without pictures is like a vacation with no photos...I need proof of deliciousness! And the pictures in Ms. Fisher's book are scrumptious. There are so many colors, textures, and flavors that literally jump off the page; it's a tempting endeavor just to thumb through this book.

The recipes themselves are wonderful! I've had the book for just over a week, and I've cooked from it five times. The Biscuit Pizza with Sausage and Peppers (p. 146) made me a hero in my household, and it was so easy to prepare. The biscuit crust makes it seem like you've slaved for hours, but it's really a quick prep. The accompanying Marinated Olive and Tomato Salad (p. 148) was really delicious. Don't miss the great spice mix recipes included in this book; Jamie's Spice Mix and FishMama Spice will save you money and up the "wow factor" in your meals.

The Chicken Tikka Masala (p. 251) is out-of-this-world phenomenal. I've tried for years to replicated Indian fare at home, and the techniques and time savings on this dish make it a winner. My husband literally wept over this dish, it's that delicious. The accompanying Coconut Rice is so full of flavor, it won raves from everyone in our house.

One of my favorite parts of this book is the pairings. The menus are pulled together in two-item increments. It's a realistic amount of cooking for 30 minutes, and I'm not killing myself to have a main and five side dishes. Simplicity rules. And when you've got great flavor and plenty of healthy ingredients, you really don't need to work so hard! (As my mother likes to say, "Work smarter, not harder.") I tend to overthink with menu planning, and the pairings in this book help me cool it with the fussiness.

The tips and tricks generously sprinkled throughout the book are wonderful. So many money saving ideas, prep tips, and strategies. I love the author's focus on healthy, delicious fare that's fabulous without being fussy or frou-frou. I'm a huge Ina Garten fan, and Ms. Fisher's books have a permanent home right next to Ina's on my kitchen counter. Jessica Fisher knows how to cook, and her recipes reflect that. She's a straight-forward writer, an exceptionally gifted recipe developer and chef, and this book is going to be a lifesaver for me and my busy family. Do yourself a favor and invest in this book; your family will be thrilled, you'll save money on your food bill, and your taste buds will dance a jig!
