To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was just really disappointed in this cookbook. Everything seems way too technical to cook. Maybe I am just used to Pioneer woman cookbook’s and don’t have the time to put into making everything from scratch. I also like cookbooks that use cheaper ingredients and that include food the entire family will eat, but I didn’t find that in this book.
Just wasn’t impressed. The food doesn’t make you get excited with the “I HAVE TO MAKE THIS!!” The book is basically pictures of her and her family - which are all gorgeous - but I would have preferred to see the food. I have no doubts her food is great and she is amazing at what she does - but it just isn’t for me or anything I want to try. Hopefully next time the book will have pictures of the food with a better, more organized layout. With maybe some varied recipes, or even some healthy options.
If you’re a huge Chrissy fan, this is everything you want and need. If you’re more into cooking and food, I would invest in another book.
Book is nice quality and the pictures of Chrissy and the family are to die for BUTTTTT the recipes suck. They’re basic, save yourself the cash and ask a ten year old to cook dinner and write recipes instead.
I will say I ordered this accidentally and decided to just keep it and give it a try. The recipes in this are so basic that even my 6 year old could master them. Honestly if you have any cooking skills at all this book is pretty much useless and I’ll definitely be gifting it out because I doubt I’ll ever make anything out of it. I wasn’t impressed at all.
I really love her. However, this cookbook only had a couple of recipes I wanted to try. I was really hoping it would have at least a couple of recipes I could make for my family after work. In all honesty, I put it on the shelf, and will probably never use it.
