    Rachel Rocks!!

    I absolutely love her books and her recipes! The thing I love most is that she is a regular girl, with a regular job, and she makes regular meals. I love it! With lives as busy as they are, who has time to take 2 hours to make dinner during the week (even on the weekends!) Her meals are real, fun, and really tasty and when I want something healthy (sometimes) versus take out, I 'take out' her cookbooks and whip something up. It takes just as long to make her meals as it does to order and get a pizza delivered. May favorite thing is that her meals are real. I watched Martha the other day after her show and she was frosting a wooden board to be able to display a 2 foot cake. Who has time to make a 2 foot cake, find a wooden board to display it, while, making th board look pretty. Not me. 30 Minute Meals are the best and this cookbook is her best yet!

    Great Book !

    I am a fan of Rachael Ray's show on Food Network, and purchased 2 of her cookbooks. This book is organized in such a way that you can take a quick look for ingredients needed for the whole meal at a glance. It's fantastic. The only downfall, is that I find most of the meals take me more like an hour to make, not 30 minutes.

    Rachael Ray has made me love to cook!

    I never used to cook, but Rachael Ray's no muss, no fuss cooking style makes it fun. The book has recipes normal people eat with ingredients you can get in a regular grocery store. Plus her cooking style is such that you learn to experiment on your own. I highly recommend it.

    Good collection of fast and easy recipes

    I have dozens of cooking books. This is the first one I really find myself going back to often.

    Better than the other review

    I thought the book was great! I used many recipes in my cooking. The food had plenty of flavor and was certainly not bland. This was one of the best cookbooks I have ever bought. The recipes were quick and simple. All recipes you receive should taste this good and be so simple! :)
